Tomorrow the girls and I are going to Wet and Wild on the Gold Coast. Now to be truthful, I don't mind a little bit of water slide action. The weather is suppose to be hot and fine. I'm sure I'll find myself a nice tyre tube to float around in and soak up some sun.
There is just one bit of a problem. My eldest, Cait who is ten wants me to got on the new Kamikaze ride with her. I am desperately trying to come up with excuses why this is a very bad idea. Yes, I am a true sooky la la when it comes to rides that have "extreme" written in front of them. Just the name of the ride makes me want to wet my pants sitting in my lounge room. Its alright for Cait for she's a gymnast and has the whole body flying through the air, crazy stunt, fear thing all capered. I on the other hand definitely do not. Fear is not something I really need to experience in my life at the present moment.
I have also brought myself a bikini for the first time for this trip. I'm in my 30's and have never owned one. I quite don't know why after three children and the profile of an ironing board I though this would be a great idea. I also brought myself a nice pair of board shorts and a swimming top to go over them. More sooky la la action there too, I know.
We should have lots of fun and hopefully all come home in one piece.
I am quite amazed going through etsy of all the beautiful and unique children's clothing that is made locally in South East Queensland. I'm always on the look out for something new for the girls, that doesn't make them look like every other child around. All the clothes below are beautifully made, individual, and have more than a little bit of something special.

Notice to all fudge and chocolate fudge lovers: check out this Brisbane Etsy Fudge Shop. It is the only one of its kind in Brisbane. I do admit I have a vested interest in this shop, as I work with the owner of this shop and I have been the very lucky recipient of some of her legendary fudge. We have had the odd fudge off at work and all I can say is wow! She also happens to be one of the nicest people I know.
