Last night we had the pre School Fete pep talk. 'No soft toys are to be bought at the white elephant stall' I proclaim. 'They are dusty and plus, we already have lots'.
'But Mum' they reply. 'You should have seen how cute they all were, piled up in the hall today'.
'No, I really mean it. Please don't'.
So we get to 11am this morning and the 11yo comes up to Rowan with a giant cow. 'Please Dad, can you carry this for me? It is very heavy'. Of course, Dad is not too pleased about this and tells her that she needs to lug around her cow, since she was the one that purchased the cow.
Oh well - the next fete is only two years away. Be prepared folks to sight the cow and dog again.
