NaBloPoMo 5 Do you like today? How do you feel about fireworks?

I suppose the answer is yes...I do like today. I remember learning about November 5th at primary school, Guy Fawkes and the gunpowder plot etc. Of course as a primary school teacher fireworks and safety is something we cover every year.

As a child I don't think I was too keen of fireworks, I just didn't like how loud they were with their booms and bangs! I also didn't like how petrified our Labrador Benji would get when it was Bonfire night and the surrounding days. He would hide himself in a corner or behind the sofa and shake. The worst thing was not being able to do anything to console him. It was horrible seeing our boisterous, fun loving dog like that.
Now I have two resident kitties who don't seem to bothered by the noise from fireworks which is a relief. They're indoor cats as we live in a flat so they are kept nice and safe inside!
These days I am more fond a fireworks and enjoy going to a display, although I think we missed our local one this year. In the future I look forward to taking Eliot to displays as a family, snuggling up and keeping cosy with our hats, scarfs and gloves.


Thank you so much for stopping by! I appreciate comments and read all of them!
