Since moving into the new place, folks have been regularly providing advice about the neighbourhood, and the seasons, and the decorating… but the biggest piece of advice is to be prepared for Halloween. Apparently kids come out of the woodwork (and woods), and descend like a plague of locusts on October 31st.
I took the voices of the experienced neighbours to heart. We now have over 700 pieces of sugary goodness locked away in the garage. (right next to the 2 cartons of girl guide cookies) Still, there are times when I’ve had to fight back the urge to stockpile more. The fact that there is a new dentist office at the end of our street has not escaped notice either. Irony has been duly noted.
After all, it’s candy. I can freeze it.
