We spent the day in Bangalow for the annual billycart derby, and it was , as always, brilliant.
However, the irony of this blog post is 1.I have scant photos of billycarts and 2. a decision I made to not lug my big camera around today and just "be mum" instead of "Megan the photojournalist" resulted in a zillion-and-one iPhone snaps anyway - just as many as I would usually take on my regular camera! (Can't help myself, it seems...)
The billycarting (as truly wonderful as it is - and, boy, does Bangalow know how it's done) was like a side-alley show for my little ones who preferred to spend the day in the festival-atmosphere of the historic Bangalow Primary School, which this year had a Mad Hatter's Tea Party theme. I can't blame them - when you're two and five and there's facepainting, rides, craft and cakes on offer, where else would you choose to be?
