Jemimah and Liana modelling their fairy outfits at the party.

Despite projected temperatures in the high 30s, Jemimah’s party was a success. Her twelve friends from church and school had a great time eating, playing and swimming in the new inflatable pool.

Fortunately an early southerly wind change dropped the temperature from the mid 30’s to a much more respectable 25C.

The party had a ‘dress up’ theme, yet the majority of guests predictably wore pink fairy outfits. The games included favourites such as the egg and spoon race, pass the parcel, Mintie hunt, and pin the tail on the horse.

This was followed by an informal splash in the new pool, kindly purchased at short notice by my mum, and lovingly inflated by the adults present.
