Hellooooooooo from myself and the KMRC team on this Hallows' Eve eve! Whatever you have planned this weekend I hope it is a little bit spooky! We are transforming some of the internal doors in our house into 'Trick or Treat' doors! The adults of the house are going to take it in turns (with different costumes each time!) to answer the doors to the two little trick of treaters! Do you think they will notice if I throw in some fruit along with the sweets?!
Bachmann Showcase Event
Keep an eye out, early next week, for the announcement of the next Bachmann Showcase event! We will be uploading the new releases (expected to be with us this November, December, & January) as soon as we receive news of them!

Things You Didn't Know You Didn't Know (or maybe you did?!)
Did you know... during the 18th century women would throw a complete apple peel over their left shoulder, as part as a Halloween tradition, hoping to see their future husband's first initial. I going to make a guess that a lot of woman saw an S shape in their apple peel?!
James' joke of the week... What would you get if you crossed a vampire and a teacher? Lots of blood tests! My Halloween joke (I didn't think it was very appropriate for a recently turned 7 year old!)... What does a zombie get when it bites a ghost? A mouth full of sheet! Keep keeping safe and smiling.
