Party went spectacularly well. Here we are about to embark on singing and cake cutting - alas I have my fake nose around my neck and so it looks like I have a very unfortunate goiter rather than being wicked witch of the west.
The sack race and the eyeball-and-spoon races were hilarious. Had to overlook much cheating - kids today - I despair!!
But the best bit was the end. Door-to-door trick or treating is not a big thing in Australia, but the kids had all heard about it and wanted to give it a try. So I set up three adults to be victims (myself included) and let them have free rein. Within five minutes I was soaked to the skin and covered in a thick layer of glitter.
Glitter itches like you would not believe. That is my principle lesson for today.
There was much laughing and running around and a lot of lovely things eaten and it was just a wonderful day.
Can't wait for next year :)
