Sundey best clothes

“Sunday best” clothes. It’s Saint George’s day. The whole family goes to the church fair. First we check out stands full of plastic toys, then the shooting range where dad manages to win mum a bunch of garish, fake flowers. Pink candy floss can’t be missed, my sister and I have to stamp our feet to get it, as it’s not healthy and bad for our teeth. But mum always gives in and on top of this grandma gives us two ‘golden’ rings with pink ‘gems.’ Total bliss. At the end of the merry-go-round, we plead for one more go, just one more. And then we’re going back, bangers going off in the background, mum, dad and grandma happy, chatty; my sister playing a toy whistle; and me with a mandatory balloon tied to my wrist.
