wanna see something freaky?

Well it is to me. MY daughter cosying up to a CLOWN. Not only is it a clown, which by definition is hiding something, it's even pretending to be an inanimate clown. Pretending that it can't move, watching, waiting... I hates them. I think I always had a problem with them but when I was about 8 a certain aunt let me watch IT and I still get a bit of a shiver sometimes. I don't do clowns. Lorien on the other hand freaky child that she is decided she wanted to sit on it's lap and give it kisses and cuddles... blech. The kids had a great time, although Rohan had a mini meltdown everytime Daddy went on a ride that he was too short for (I think there were six in total and they were SCARY). It's no good telling him that it will be all the sweeter when he goes next time and has grown the extra 10cm required. I think every kid needs to go to an amusement park and taste the dissapointment of being just a little too small. Am I a sadist?

Haven't posted much lately, mainly because we were hit by one malady after another (flu, gastro, weird high temp and rash illness, broken toe etc.) all while in the lead up to coming away to sunny Queensland. And O doesn't understand why I had a stress headache for the first few days! Bit of adjustment, staying with fadgirl and family and another single friend, trying to balance family time, girl time, father son time, together time etc. but I think we are all heading towards relaxed. Will try to blog my funky unique type finds from Eumundi later, but for now here's something festive from the Coolum kite festival
