Friday night and it was Williamstown Christmas Street Fair. All the shops stayed open and there were balloons and giveaways and sticky treats.
So I set up my story mat outside Book and Paper.
I started right at 'I'm starving' hour and most of the small people and strollers marched right on by in search of food for the body rather than the soul.
Oh dear. This could be a long night.
But once they were fuelled up, the children returned in waves.
They joined me at the beach and at the farm, and at sea with a hungry sailor.
