Great balls of fire 
The bonfire went well. I hardly needed to use any of the dry wood - it caught fire very quickly and helped to guide everyone up to the paddock. It was also sunny for two days, so it was cold and clear. Ideal bonfire weather. A bit muddy through the gate, however, and some fun for certain people who didn't take the approved route driving up the paddock.

Someone had a football, which was wrapped in chicken wire, then tightly wrapped with old rags and soaked in turpentine. Once lit, it produced a dramatic fireball which they proceeded to kick around the paddock. The idea is that the flame is fairly cool and doesn't burn anything. It didn't, but there were a couple of singed trousers. Just don't tell Dad...

We were supposed to be off visiting friends this weekend, but that fell through, so it looks like I have a free weekend. Free as in chance-to-catch-up-with-everything, not as in sofa-all-day...
