Happy November, where did October go?
Last weekend it was really, really cold but the weather, warmed up and actually towards the end of last week the weather was quite nice. Let's be honest it was a lovely day on Saturday for the first week of November dry, sunny and even warmish not bad at all.
Guy Fawkes night tonight, I really do like fireworks although with Hannah being away and Leyla going to a party I don't have to bother which is just as well as I am going to be in DERBY on sales calls with Erika of Mi Malta DMC.
Wednesday this week is the Hindu festival of Diwali, for those who are celebrating this festival may I take this opportunity to wish you days full of light and wonderful Diwali.
I do not know whether I have mentioned this before but I'm quite involved with the security at St John's Wood Synagogue,as a result of last week tragic shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, the synagogue in the heart of London was slightly on edge, whilst I can't ever see that type of thing happening in London, we have all learned never to say never. We said special prayers in the synagogue for the bereaved and the injured as a result of the Pittsburgh shooting. I can only hope, whilst the pain for our friends in Pittsburgh has not worn off, hopefully the shock has.
