Last year I had chocolate bars (the small kind) all ready and we seemed to have dozens of the local kids come Tricking or Treating that I was a tad concerned I wouldn't have any left for when Mark's (my lawn mowing guy) kids came. They are so polite and well brought up. So this year I was going to be sure and at the supermarket shop on Thursday I bought extra. So I had this lovely big bowl for them to pick one from.
Now would you believe it. NOT ONE SINGLE KID came to the door. I thought I might be now classed as The Dragon of No21 to be avoided at all costs. I really was quite disappointed.
The Scot doesn't like chocolate and its not good for me so this afternoon I put them all into a fancy bag and went up to Mark's house - he lives three houses away from us. Knocked on the door. Mark answered and his youngest and I said TRICK OR TREAT the look on their faces was something to be seen. I then told them how disappointed I had been, the kids had a holiday from school (Melbourne Cup tomorrow - will explain that in next post) and Mark was kinda kid sitting, we all had a good laugh and the boys were going to share them with their friends.
So what do I do next year........................
