Week 96 - My Sunday Photo and Photalife LIGHT

Last week I bought a pumpkin at the petrol station in Monmouth, South Wales, to carve with and for my 5 year old niece. It cost £3. 

When we lived in South Africa, I carved butternut squashes for Halloween as Pumpkins were difficult to find. Last year I was in South Africa for Halloween so I had no idea if they sold Pumpkins in Dubai, so I was very excited to see that they did and I wanted to buy one to put on the gate to let the local children know I had sweets to give away. however at £5 per kilo, it meant the pumpkin I chose would've cost me £25.

So I bought a melon to carve, I've carved them before and pomelo's as well as other fruit and veg and at least I'll eat the melon and it was LIGHTer on my wallet.

  3. £25 is quite a price. I must say ours was 75p, but then we did buy quite a few so all my kids got to have a go

  5. My mummy carved a watermelon and a pumpkin this year. But £25 is extortionate! #MySundayPhoto
