For this weeks video I decided that I was going to share my Bonfire Night with you!
My Mum unfortunately couldn’t make the firework display at our local pub which we always go to every year for Bonfire Night. So I thought I would film it for her so she could pretend like she was there!
November 5th commemorates the failure of the November 1605 Gunpowder Plot by a gang of Roman Catholic activists led by Warwickshire-born Robert Catesby.
When Protestant King James I acceded to the throne, English Catholics had hoped that the persecution they had felt for over 45 years under Queen Elizabeth would finally end. When this didn’t transpire, a group of conspirators resolved to assassinate the King and his ministers by blowing up the Palace of Westminster during the state opening of Parliament.
Guy Fawkes and his fellow conspirators, having rented out a house closed to the Houses of Parliament, managed to smuggle 36 barrels of gunpowder into a cellar of the House of Lords – enough to completely destroy the building.
It has been a while since I have sat down and written a blog post which saddens me. I feel throughout the month of October I never actually did a proper blog. Now the horrible thing about the fact that I haven’t blogged in a while is because I haven’t had much inspiration to. I don’t want this blog to just be another beauty blog to add to the pile of other beauty blogs, which I feel was what this was turning into before. However, my slight issue though is what to blog about. At the moment I tend to be more focused on my YouTube channel and I am really enjoying doing that and I hope (if you watch them) that you are enjoying them as much as me. Also there is this thing that I have to do practically every day called school which is taking up my time at the moment, the history coursework is looming!
Wether I will be able to blog every Friday is now a matter of ideas and time. I hope I can blog more than I have been because the last time I properly blogged was the day before my birthday on the 28th September… I shouldn’t really admit that, but I am telling the honest truth here.
Hopefully I will find some time and inspiration over the next week for another blog soon.
