November is the month of Guy Fawkes night and remembrance day, both of which made me a little uncomfortable this year. I was acutely aware that there was a huge amount of pain and suffering behind both of them. As far as I can work out the bonfire night celebration is not only about Guy Fawkes – for two hundred and fifty years it was a state ordered anti-Catholic event.
A celebration, a book signing, a reading and £40 collected for the MacMillan Nurses. All in all, a good day.
