The boys had a friend each over for trick or treating and I set about turning three of them into zombies - face-paints of course, fake blood made of honey, syrup and red food colouring (it looked soooooo real!!) and scabs made of aforementioned fake blood and oats!!
It was a case of loosening the aprons strings a little too as for the first time they went out without me or Mr G accompanying them - we figured at 13 1/2 H and his friend M were old enough to ensure the younger boys were OK.
I always agonise over these decisions, I remember the first time I let them walk to the corner shop on their own was a big milestone!! I can't begin to imagine what'll be like in a few years when they are off out and I have no idea where they will be.
With my anxiety I find it all a bit stressful - my sister has let my nephew out with friends during the day for ages now, but I'm still not keen!!
I have been busy today working on a few pieces of furniture I have in to do, including my first commission!!
We picked up a gorgeous Regency style sideboard, a little dresser top which I have painted Wedgewood blue and a French style demi-lune table. No pics yet but watch this space!!
