Never promise something to a child that you never have any intention of going through with because they wont forget.....ever.

6 months ago I promised Joanna that because we couldnt visit the circus this time we would next time. So when she saw the circus roll into town last week she immediately threw the promise in my face. Now it may be that I dont like to spend the best past of 50 quid on two hours at the circus or it may just be that I hate clowns but there was no way I was gonna get out of it, so off we went to the circus.

We had front row seats which immediately made me feel nervous about being dragged onto stage to get made a spectacle of. SO the kids see these light toys that are being sold and want one, again never send your husband up with the kids to get these, they dont understand the theory behind captive audience and end up paying the total rip off price of £5 each for stupid toys that will be broken and usless by the time you go home.

All said we had a good time, apart from an annoying spoilt 2 year old sat next to us who kept demanding the kids candy floss.

Ethan enjoyed the spiderman show, Joanna loved watching all the pretty dancers, I enjoyed watching the smiles on my kids faces and hubby enjoyed the positions the gymnasts could stretch into - I personally wondered who they get to do their bikini lines ;) they were not leaving much to the imagination.

But you know what - clowns still scare me!! They are wrong and weird and will never make me laugh.
