Why do fireworks genuinely make you go "ahhhhHHH!" and "oooOOooH!"? The fireworks at Lewes this evening made me do just that. And honestly, completely involuntarily. Coupled with the hugest, tallest bonfire I have ever seen, I found myself in tears, mesmerised by the showers of stars falling towards me. Spectacular. Much needed tonic for the soul.

The parades were pretty good. Definitely the scariest moment was watching the Cliffe parade and a mass of hot crucifixes held up high and ablaze in fire going past while a drunken (and mmm, so attractive) man shouted "Burn the Pope!" over and over again. What would my mum and dad say?!
