Can I rest now?

What a weekend!

Just got in from the fireworks. Hemel has them early as part of their Halloween events. Sadly I forgot my camera, but it was good fun!

The rest of the day was spent decorating my friend's house for their childrens party tomorrow. I have the day off to help. I'm not sure I have the energy.

What else was there?

Oh yes... :)

Highgate.

Saturday was sueworld2003's Highdate trip. I had a fantastic time (except for the cramp I got climbing the hill, which I'm still suffering from). Everyone was amazingly lovely as always and my Plaice and Chips were superb.



I'm too tired to write a full report, but I'll see what I can do.

Got to the cemetery early as I got a really good parking spot. sparrow2000 was already there and were soon joined by kazzy_cee, sueworld2003, frimfram, shapinglight, serenitygal and Annikki, peasant_, kitty_poker1, vic_amy_z and vampirefever.

We were guided round by Richard, who lives in Switzerland and still finds time to volunteer at the cemetery.

Old Highgate Cemetery is very overgrown. The 'managed neglect' just adds to the atmosphere, as did the mournful leaves falling from the trees.





The Victorians liked their Egyptian themed monuments. Fancy being interred in there?





Or perhaps in one of these fine vaults?





If you stand too close you'll see her knickers.



At least she isn't lying down on the job:





If this one was in Sunnydale, you just know they would be something important in there:



The New Cemetery was a lot less romantic, but still had it's fair share of interesting funeral statuary:



Someone important:




Then it was off to the pub for grub and a chinwag!
