These are the cupcakes I made for the fair. We still don't have the tally, but I do know the curry stall raised over $2,500, which is phenomenal. The mother who organised that one deserves a round of applause - it's a huge task.
Miss O had $20 saved to spend at the fair. I bought them both the prepaid armbands for the rides, but anything else had to be paid from their own money.
I tried to talk a usually very prudent Miss O out of buying tickets for the toy stall
a) because proceeds did not go to the school but to ride operators
b) because I did not want a 2 foot soft toy in our tiny house
What do you know, we have a new family member. This is Vanessa keeping a flailing Miss O company on Friday evening after a busy day at athletics carnival and afternoon at the local McDonalds for the after party.
Miss O wondering if she's won a ribbon for that one.
(She didn't win any - but gave it her best shot)
Her outfit is her own interpretation of 'sports wear'.
