Sunday,it was hot!
So we did what Australian children have done for years.
We set up the slip and slide!
Now this is a proper job.
Not the 'black plastic with a brick on the sprinkler'' version I made with my friends as a child.
With some dish wash liquid squirted on it so you slid really fast.
It would get sand on it from dirty feet.
That would cut your skin as you slid along.
Sometimes you would shoot off the end.
You had to look out for little tackers!
Or you would knock them flying!
Someone always had a dog that would bark like mad and try to nip you as you did your run up.
You would stick the little ones,
In a bucket,
To keep them out of the way.
Because you knew if they had a go,they would fall over.
