Happy Halloween! I hope you’re enjoying Halloween. I love Halloween – it was my favourite holiday as a child and I came up with increasingly weird costume ideas. Back then Halloween was still a bit of niche thing; although it’s hard to believe now we were under strict instruction as kids to only trick-or-treat the houses with pumpkins as the other houses would genuinely have no idea what Halloween was. These days the retail, film and even food industry have caught on to the financial potential of Halloween and marketing is EVERYWHERE!

Skeleton dances, witches, sci-fi, the dead, ghosts, Frankenstein, gothic, black, velvet, The Addams Family, voodoo, supernatural, Hammer Horror by Kate Bush, fear, unexplained mysteries, Thriller, graveyards, the occult, the science of fear; these are just some of the things Halloween means to me. I love it all! I love being scared and I’ve always been interested in death and the afterlife; I’m not a gloomy person but it’s something that has always fascinated me. Tonight I’ll be firmly in the world of the living as we’re throwing a big combination house/birthday party with a bit of an unusual theme; I’ll tell all next time but it does involve me wearing a sequinned union jack dress…
