Bonfire night as told by a lively three year old

Last night we all took ourselves off to Cavendish PTA Bonfire Night. Our girls enjoyed it so much, I felt it only fair to let chatty three year old tell the story.

When Mummy got home from work, we all went to a Bonfire. My baby sister was in the pram and I rode on Daddy’s shoulders. It was very muddy so it was lucky I had my wellies on. It smelled funny and the sky was lit up with the big fire.


I got a safe light stick to hold that I could swirl around. I kept hitting Daddy in the head and face.


I let baby sister hold it but we had to negotiate how many minutes she was allowed to have it for.


The fireworks started with a big bang and lit up the sky with colours. Pink was very favourite.


I liked the fireworks but I had to stick my fingers in my ears as they were so loud.


It was the first proper bonfire and fireworks night me and my baby sister had been to. We liked it and stayed up very late. I even had some of Mummy and Daddy’s fish and chips afterwards.

I want next year’s to come quickly!


Working Mum of two, living in Didsbury, Manchester, in a house which breeds washing, mushed up raisins and various toys in the brightest primary colours. Oh, and the odd empty wine glass.

  1. We don’t have any displays round here any more 🙁 I do miss this. It made me reminisce about being young and going to the Local Community Centre and each year hearing people say stuff like “Council’s paid out a lot this year haven’t they?” and “Oooh that’s a posh one” haha. Great post, looks like you had a ball!
