  1. Off topic, sorry. I was following your blog and now I’m not… I don’t know why 🙁 And for some reason I can’t see the “follow” button anymore. Help!

    1. Glad it worked, Jo.
      It happens to me too, every now and again I revisit a blog and it looks as if I am not following it anymore.
      Un weekend frumos!

      1. Foarte neplăcut. Aș regreta să pierdem legătura. Imi place blogul tău. Mai învăț una-alta chiar și despre Romania. Keep up the good work.

Now, I will try to nonchalantly put Samhainophobia in a sentence and impress my husband. A very fun post. The questions found in the local media today is favourite Halloween candy. Difficult to measure the accuracy of the responses.(Also no issue with your post and I have more luck using Google Chrome with many blogs)

    1. So glad to hear you had fun, Erica 🙂
