I’m supposed to be putting the Badoo’s carnival party together. It’s on tomorrow at 2pm and I’ve barely done a thing. I sewed a whole heap of bunting last night (and the cutest little mini bunting) and then decided that Max’s room needed some bunting so I sewed that up and then I watched SYTYCD on TIVO and went to bed.
So up there, in that photo, is pretty much the whole carnival party so far.
The problem is that it is pouring with rain and has been all week, so my heart’s not in it. Even the actual carnival people know that no one wants to go to a carnival in the rain.
And no one wants a carnival in their living room.
Seriously, it’s 25 little people and ‘Lucky Duck’ in the bathtub tomorrow. The tattoo parlour is in the kitchen, ‘Hoopla’ on the dripping back deck and ‘Ball Toss’ is… well, I’m not sure where Ball Toss is going but let’s just say wherever it’s going is not going to be dry.
I need to rally. Kids are coming and the party is pumping whether I get my act together or not. I mustn’t think about all those muddy little feet tromping across the white wool sisal rug in the lounge room – no, actually I must. I must remember to pull that rug up! And cover the white lounge and make the pinwheel decorations and the pinwheel cakes and the pinwheel pastries and… and… and…
I’m just going to go and sharpen my pencils and then I’ll get right onto it…
