The floodgates are startin’ to open
And nonsense is startin’ a-pokin’
October is nigh
Oh me! Oh my!
As All Hallows’ month is approachin’!

Oh me! Oh my! I’ve started early this year. In five days I shall be handing the reigns of the blog over to my Inner Beast who, it is planned, will fill this place full of Hallowe’en madness and utter nonsense. The Halloween theme will filter through most of my regular features, The Slightly Spooky Totally Silly Limericks will return once again, I’m also taking part in Inktober, which will be fun, and I am preparing for a Hallowe’en special to ‘beat all specials’ this year. Well, it’s a different kind of Hallowe’en post (which was, originally, going to be a weekly series to replace my Letters to the Universe series, and it is also the reason why I’m having to spend less time actually in Blogland itself… and as it has become such a monumental task, I think a one-off would be the better option for now. That said, it does leave the gates (not the floodgates, just the normal ones!) open for the weekly Letters to the Universe to return, as soon as we find out where those missing superheroes are!)

So that’s the plan.

Plans change, but that’s the plan for October for now. And yes, I shall be replying to comments and visiting again soon. I seem to always say that… but I get there in the end.

In the meantime… Feel Good! Enjoy the final few days of September. Already! I can’t believe it!!!

    1. As long as you say your not nice stuff in a nice way, it’s all good, Beverly! 😉 😀
      I love Hallowe’en, hence my month-long celebration. I hope, if you call by to read some of the posts, you find them to be a fun take on the theme… I don’t take things too seriously around here! 😀

      1. Yes, this is what I meant. I do remember your Halloween posts. I just wrote Inktober because I thought this was the new name for October. I have to keep up with the new trends. 😅

    1. There is a theme within a theme cropping up this year, VK… I wonder if it will show through in the posts? Time will tell.
      The Mansion has been quiet for a while, hasn’t it…!?
