Thanks for the replies guys, I dragged myself to another Asda today, managed to get 7 pumpkins, bit better sized that the ones I seen yesterday, couple of them aren't in the best of shape, will have to keep an eye on them but atleast I got a few!

That sucks :( Hope you find something. Talk to Gus or Nos might be able to point you in the right direction. Yeah, it really does, can't even get foam pumpkins over here, I just feel insanely disappointed! which is silly but I love Halloween and i've had pumpkins each year for many many years, I wa...

My Halloween spirit has gone out the window, usually grow our own pumpkins but they didn't grow this year any bigger than a golf ball, tried to remain optimistic and went down the route of buying supermarket pumpkins, when the big supermarkets in the UK first got their pumpkins in they were really d...

You sure? my printer is pretty prehistoric to be honest that's why I was a bit puzzled as to if I could resize easily with it, never really use it unless it's to scan or print out general stuff, never re-sized but I just went to properties when the print thingy popped up, then page layout then reduc...

Other shops that i've seen Halloween stuff in - Home Bargains, they have stuff like what's in B&M but some different things too, bags of bones for £5, they have lots of skull type props. Pound World, quite surprised by that shop! they have quite a lot of good stuff for only £1, I got lots of bloody ...

Thanks to quixotic for the heads up I popped in to Wilkinsons this afternoon, some of the things they have aren't too bad; black roses, warning tape and some nice skull shot glasses they were plastic of course but only £1.80 for 4, bit of fun. The hanging witch ( http://goo.gl/JksLU ) has posable a...

Just for anyone in the UK, if you didn't already know, ASDA seem to have their stock out now or should in most stores, I know ASDA is probably the main supermarket that people look for Halloween related items in as the others aren't as good! forgot to take pictures, they didn't have anything that gr...

I don't think it will last that long if i carve it, I started a week before last year and that was pushing it slightly. I thought about cutting the soft spot out but I don't know how deep it is, it might end up being all the way through so then i'd have to gut it, I guess it's best to do something a...

Hello, one of my pumpkins has a soft spot, i'm wondering if it can be saved? looks like it's just started, never had this problem before, it's a shop bought one (typical!)
