When I suggested we go to the village bonfire and firework display I honestly did not think about how it would affect Mr M.
In hindsight being diagnosed with Combat Stress after a tour of duty in Afghanistan should have been enough for me to guess how he would react to the sounds of the fireworks - sounds very much like gun fire.
Why was I shocked when he hit the deck at the sound of the first one?
Why did I laugh when I looked round and realised what had happened?
Obviously, tonight was not one of my better ideas and Mr M certainly is far from cured!
