“Mummy” says the Noisy Boy appearing suddenly at my side this morning. Well, I say that this is what he says but what I mean is:
“MUMMY” booms the Noisy Boy at one of the decibels close to the top of his voice range. That’s quite a range let me tell you.
“Yes darling?” I say holding onto random rattling decorative glass articles around me.
“We’re going to the beach. You’ll need to get your beach clothes on“.
Notice that he doesn’t, unlike most Australian children, say “Mummy get your short and swimmers on“. He knows me better than that. I don’t wear shorts. Never have. Never will. I like wearing frocks and heels. So that is what I wore to the beach today and pretty much every day that we visit the beach.
The Minx wore leopard print. My husband rolls his eyes and mutters about raising another Bet Lynch under his breath. I silently cheer and punch the air.
This is Bet Lynch (aka Julie Goodyear)
and this is the Minx modelling her Bet Lynch beachwear and a shade of zinc sunblock that invariably gets me a telling off from local grannies. “You should put sunscreen on that poor child” etc etc.
Personally I would rather see a bit more leopard print on the beach. I know that I am not alone because ‘leopard print’ is one of the top search engine terms used to find this blog after “Edwina Currie stockings” ‘young barbara windsor‘ and ‘jamie lee curtis breasts‘ and a couple of other ones too rude to mention anywhere other than here.
Kurnell Beach is fairly quiet – this could be due to the desalination plant and various other bits and bobs of industrial workings around the area. There is a beautiful park at Kurnell though and it’s mostly populated by locals who are hoping you won’t mind if their dog jumps on you and then sniffs your bum while you’re sunbathing. Not many eyebrows are ever raised by high heels on the sand. This is, to me, as good as encouragement. Next week I might try thigh boots and a bikini.
