Prepping for the "season"

Firework season is upon us! There are a few halloween shows over the next week and then the 5th of November looms large. It is going to be busy!

In preparation, I decided I better sort through my kit box and check that I have everything I need:
    emergency chocolate - check
    rigging gloves (formally sailing gloves) - check
    warm toasty gloves - check
    knife - check
    nips (wire cutters)  - check
    at least two warm hats  - check
    cheap sunglasses - check
    torch - check
    headtorch - erm... better get searching for that... especially as it took three before I found one I liked... finally found!

And I may have treated myself to a trip to Decathlon for some extra warm clothing to help me through the cold (and possibly wet) days ahead. And the best thing was how cheap it all was :)
My haul - a very soft fleecy buff, extra thermal top, fleecy layer and ski socks (long and toasty warm).
Bring on the fireworks :)

Excited for your upcoming season - especially Guy Fawkes on November 5th. Hope you will share your work.

Nice warm clothing... good for you - and good prices are a happy win, too.

Sounds like fun and looks like great clothes for cold weather running too :)

The other day when I was looking forward to going to the fireworks later I thought how busy you must be

Busy is an understatement! :) It's been a long few days...
