Pumpkin Carving

We started our pumpkin carving last night and I managed to finish two pumpkins for my Mum and her neighbour, but I did think my hand were going to fall off afterwards. Honestly it’s such hard work!

Miss L did the scraping of the insides – apparently that is the best bit πŸ™‚


Then I used the templates from Waitrose and carved the pumpkins, they came out pretty well and I’m sure they’ll look great lit up.


Tonight I’ll be working ours which is going to be a fancy ‘Happy Halloween’ with a tree and a monster as a present for one of Miss L’s friends as we’re off to their Halloween party on Friday.Β  Her Mums partner and I are having a Pumpkin Pie ‘off’ to see who can make the best one, I have a slight advantage in that I’ve actually ever tasted it LOL!
