Right, well here you go then:
See that - that cat's looking at you. No I'm serious, because when you walk or drive a little further down the road it's head follows you...
And I think it looks even more startling in real life, I'm not sure this photo does it full credit. The cat's not much smaller than my car!
It's a huge inflatable that someone has bought and climbed up on their roof to secure...and if this isn't enough - it has a motor so it's head rotates from side to side!
But this still isn't enough - what's that at the side of the house?
It's a huge Halloween snowglobe that constantly has bits of large confetti blowing around in it....and lights up at night.
And this family have obviously been out on their roof again to hang two large witches. And they have orange Halloween lights all around the garden as well as numerous wooden Halloweeny stakes shoved into their lawn.
It might not be the most creative of all the front garden decorations I seen (and for these check out my previous Halloween Watch posts) but it is the biggest and most startling when you drive down the street.
I also saw some great use of previous year costumes today whilst out and about but didn't have my camera on me (and wasn't particularly in the mood, went to the doctors today about the constant pain in my right leg - now got to go for bloodwork (which I hope is what they call a bloodtest here), an ultrasound on my leg, another ultrasound on my pelvis AND a mammogram - they start them over here far younger than in the UK)...
...what was I saying, oh yes, there was one house where they've obviously been dressing up as superheroes for a few years now - so they'd stuffed the Spiderman, Hulk, Batman etc costumes and suspended them around the front of the house as if they were all deciding to climb up it at the same time.
Anyway, I must be getting on - it's Melchett's Halloween Dance at her school tomorrow (as I'm sure most schools in the country will be doing) and every child has to be chaperoned...and as per usual I have 2 half finished costumes awaiting me in Tempest's Creative Laboratory that need urgent finishing. So byee for noweee.
