All Over Red Rover...well till 2012
What a great day,beautiful weather,just perfect,so many smiling faces from both the kids and the lovely elderly, the theme of the day was Happy Days and there were many Fonzie's there and many Joanie's,and one old Fonzie.
Prizes galore,so much so that at the end of the day we just kept going round and round until they were the prizes were all gone.
We were expecting 125 but 132 turned up and we never say no to anyone, but if it keeps up like this we will have to hire the Opera House lol.
Honestly though it is all worth it,the aching legs tired body and the headache,the worry if there is enough food .The children and the Hospitality teacher did and amazing job ,every one fed,everyone loaded with presents,everyone feeling loved and respected.
The King and Queen totally shocked at being chosen,Mrs Milton has early dementia,her daughter said this just made her day..how lovely.. and the King Mr Day,he will be 90 in 2 weeks,they have organised a party for him twice and ill health has made them cancel so to him he said to be chosen as King was better than any party,he is a 2 war veteran and the local gent who knows the entire history of our valley,he will be much missed when he leaves this world.
Here are some pics of the day..hope you like looking at them.
So that is a little look at our day,I will start gathering prizes again as early as next week,it was very hard this year doing this on my own but I have Bob and we made it!My only disappointment was that Mum did not want to go as she gets so tired,but she was in the wrap and giggle days,she was the tea lady and kept us going so I am so grateful for that,thanks Bob thanks Mum and bring on next year...but not too quickly lol.
