Hey everyone, it's Halloween this week. What are you dressing up as? I am going to be a cat and I have a brilliant cat joke to share with you later! As well as dressing up and trick or treating (or guising as we call it up here in Scotland!) with your friends it's also pumpkin time! In my special Halloween blog I share some perfect pumpkin facts, let you see this year's lantern and share a wonderful pumpkin recipe (ooh and I'll maybe squeeze in a wee book review while I am here too!...)
