Strike!

Well, the bowling dinner last night was actually a lot of fun! We played two games first, and I was worried that Jr Her wouldn't play because she may not be bowling with me.

As it happened she was bowling with all the other kids so she was okay with that. Him and I ended up bowling together with a few others that were a lot of fun. We played an 8 No-Tapp. That means that anything 8 or over is a strike. One fellow even got a perfect score of 300.

Him seemed to enjoy himself and even bowled quite well. He has never really bowled much, but scored quite high. I was going great guns until something in my middle finger went pop and from that point it was white hot pain every time I let go of the ball. But I perservered and had a great time anyway.

After the games we went into the meeting room for trophy presentation. There was only 1 seat left next to my team so Him and I sat together on the other side of the room. My team mates talked their neighbours into moving and making room for us, but then one of the, um, "characters" of bowling, took one of the seats, right in front of me! Never mind. We got our trophys and the food finally arrived after 9.00pm! Man, there were some hungry people by that time. Only trouble with it was there was just not quite enough...one more platter would have done it nicely. All the favourite finger foods - hot spring rolls, vegie triangles, fish bites, cruncy potato wedges and yummy meaty calamari.

All in all, I think a great night was had by all.

Oh, and as an after thought, Jr Her lost a tooth yesterday at Vacation Care so a very weary tooth fairy had to put money in her glass before she could go to bed for the night...

I hope your tooth fairy was better than mine. Who used to keep forgetting to visit. Crushed that one good and proper. And at an early age.......

Well, this tooth hairy was a bit tired, and was hoping the kid wasn't playing possum and was really asleep! I think she was..she was happy with the coinage she received anyway so she must have been. I keep the myth alive cause if we can't believe in Santa, the tooth fairy or the Easter Bunny, what can we believe in? Reality is just too scarey to contemplate....
