Guy Fawkes has many meanings for me
For the last 21 years it has also been my best friends birthday
And for 10 years I've been watching my children be initially terrified then follow on to be excited and watch in wonder
But it was 5 years ago that my beloved Nana left this world....
we like to think that she 'went out with a bang' .....
We used to call her the 'pink lady' because of her obvious love of the colour.....and I was called her 'lady lucky lucy laura'
and my Mike she renamed 'himself'
( too many Mikes in our family)
She was more than just my Nana, quite often she was like my second mother....I even used to raid her wardrobe!
We think of her alot, and last night along with my Mum, Mike the kids and our neighbours...we lit a firework for just for her.....
I'm sure she was watching down and enjoying the show
