I LOVE Fireworks night. I love the trudging through parks and fields, the smell of nearly burnt jacket potatoes smothered in butter and laden with cheese and beans… I love hot chocolate in flasks, woolly hats on heads, bonfires, sparklers and being wrapped up in my cosies while gazing up at the crash bang wallops…
