No way am I having fireworks in my own garden

Why have fireworks in your own backgarden when you can have great fun at a professionally organised display like the one tonight at Orsett Showground, Thurrock. 

I really am not a great fan of fireworks generally, even now as an adult they still scare me to a certain degree.  Fireworks are something I wouldn’t have in my own garden as I am on edge the whole time they are being let off.  Over the years we have been to friends’ houses and I am anxious the whole time thinking that one is just about to go off in my face or even worst one of my children’s faces!

Over the last couple of years we have gone to a professionally organised display – these displays suit me much better because we are far back and the fireworks are held in proper holders to be let off to ensure safety – well I hope, this kind of thinking actually gets me there! 

Our kids love them and I am conscious not to put my fear of fireworks into them, I don’t want them being a nervous wreck like myself.

I can remember as an older child of about 10 my mum and dad were going to take us to the local firework display at Gloucester park, we wrapped up warm, because back in those days it was freezing in November, got outside, walked down the end of our path and then I chickened out and we all went back home! 

My daughter has asked if she can have some sparklers which I said they don’t sell them to members of the public!  I know I am being silly in not letting her and my son have them (ages 6 and 3) because they are great fun and make firework night – I will buy them the battery operated ones this evening – I know they are not the same but hey ho!

We might see you at Orsett Showground, Thurrock tonight - my kids are the ones without sparklers but they will have the battery operated ones!
