Firework Season Begins 

As my Wise Irish Granny once said: "When Life Gets Tough, have a good rant about it under a pseudonym on your weblog."

Or something like that.

It's early October. Guy Fawke's Night is November Fifth. So it makes sense to buy fireworks and try them out now doesn't it? We had to deal with the first of them waking our daughter at half past ten last night. Sunday. School night. Perfect!

Well she's going to have to get used to it. And she will. By the end of this month, it will sound like we're living in a war zone. It gets that bad. You can hardly talk on the phone, it's so loud. Tough luck, if you have pets, or young children. People just won't wait for the fifth any more. O.K, I could understand letting off fireworks at the weekend before, or after the holiday, if people were having a party, and the fifth was midweek, but it's truly ridiculous these days.

When I was a kid, Firework's Night was special, because it was restricted to one night. You remember how the "Christmas wait" was a matter of weeks, not a period of three months? It's so unfair on the kids.

I don't know how it is in the U.S. I'm hoping you don't have to deal with this.
