Out in the Garden: My daughter's maze is the best in the world...unlike our fireworks!
This last week has to be one of my favourite weeks of the year when the Cox household makes their annual pilgrimage to the bottom of the garden for possibly the world’s worst fireworks display.
This year, we increased our budget to a heady £15.99 so we knew at best that we’d have 30 – 40 seconds worth of flaming disappointment. I lit the first firework which was called “The Thriller” and I can speak for the whole Cox clan when I say it was definitely not thrilling, though its pitiful display was highly amusing.
We had even higher hopes for the current Mrs Cox’s choice of bangers, which came with a health warning, but they too were sadly underwhelming. We finished the night off by taking it in turns to write rude words with our sparklers in the air, my daughter who turned 10 this year won with “bums”.
