Say hello to my little friend...

I have a confession to make....

I've never carved a pumpkin before.

(I know, how deprived have I been?!)

I was so determined to do a good job that I decided I would draw it on before setting to with a knife. Except the ruddy pen was one of those Sharpies and you know what? They really do write on every surface! And you can't get it off for love nor money!

I said a bad word when I realised.

So he's not perfect but he's still scary right? RIGHT?

He's coming away with the boyfriend and I as we are off this weekend to my sister's house for her 40th birthday. I'm hoping she'll have got some in for my nephews so I can have another go and do a better job this time!

Lovely! Last night I carved my first one too - I held a dinner party, and afterwards we played Monopoly and then imprinted a very smiley, chirpy face on my pumpkin (because I hate horrible Halloween things...really). He's beaming at me from across the room!

Aw he's wonderful! Congratulations on your first pumpkin and don't worry the pen effect enhances him! I once painted mine purple so anything goes! xxx
