A busy few weekends for us behind and ahead. Last week was intense - but lots of fun.
Champs Sports Bar, Loxley
Two days of Balloon Modelling, Face Painting, Fire and Whippery :)
Inflatables, kids characters - kids absolutely loved it! The bar staff were lovely and enthusiastic, happily having their faces painted and working really hard to make sure everyone had a great time.
We had a really good response to the fire show from the kids who were running around pretending to be Captain Jack Sparrow with light sabers. All in all - success!
And next weekend (22/08/2015) from 2pm we get to do it all again, here:
The Wadlsey Jack
Please do come and join us. On request from some of the great kids we met at the Champs do - I am now bringing some fab glitter tattoos. Which, to be quite honest, you really don't need an 11 minute tutorial to learn how to do. But I will save that log for another more rum filled post.
The first funny thing that happened was we were a bit peckish and looking for our friends, I wandered over to that raight nice caff in Endcliffe Park to get a ridiculous priced drink that no propa Yorkshire person would pay for. I'm not proper Yorkshire however, so I did, and then moaned about it like a daily mail reader.
Whilst I was doing so a small person came up to me with greetings of
"Hiya!!!!!!!!" she squeaked, with eyes so big and soapy with pleasure they burst on one blink, with the tiniest droplets finally settling on the end of her eyelashes.
I looked down from my hand of change, carefully counted at every step along the long queue... (festival) ... and next you must ue the toilet..... (festival) ...and noticed the puddle on the floor. I sharply drew in my breath and stuttered incompetantly in an adult way..
(Hi, how are you?)
(Good Good, er, good?)
Bye... then she puts back in her eyes, and runs back to her folks and announces proudly
" I, just said hello to a REAL pirate"
Thinking cabin boy @ 10 seconds or whatever it is in newspeak, Yeeeeeeehaw, etc?
ADHD + Rum =
