Carnival capers and a new pet....meet Pikachu!

On Saturday evening we went along to Eastbourne seafront to see the carnival. Its the first time in several years that Eastbourne have held a carnival and although it was ok, it certainly didn't meet up to the standards that they used to when we were younger. I guess these days there are so many restrictions with health and safety, insurance etc...plus there were quite large gaps in the procession which didn't help. But anyway, there was a good turnout of people to support everyone involved and here are a few photos I managed to get.
There was a super Skate Crew that came along in a long line, with a vast age range. Every now and again a couple of the guys would lay down in the road....and someone else would jump over them....cool!
I am not sure, but I think he may have been Henry VIII...brilliant costumes though.


Meet the latest recruit for the local fire service....he even had a blue flashing light on his back!

On the trek back to the car, Chloe decided that 'planking' was a good idea and tried  HERE.....

..............................................................and HERE! :)

After the carnival we went back to my Sister's house....and some of us got a little bit *jubilee-fied*
                                                         ......bless her xx




and now onto our new pet LOL......do you ever remember watching a programme called Pokemon ?

well we have a life sized one LOL. Lauren was invited to a fancy dress party and she was itching to use her Pikachu outfit. Unfortunately she couldn't find her face paints, so she had to resort to using eyeshadow.....I think she looks fantastic!

                                Pikachu with attitude.
She even painted her nails with the official Pokeball design ( and used my Sharpies to decorate her white bra in EXACTLY the same pattern LOL!) could have been worse I guess....it could have been my Promarkers!!!!
 

                     Needless to say she had a great time at the party ;)


Today we have been to Hastings for a few hours and enjoyed a stroll through Old Town, hit the arcades etc etc. Hope to pop back tomorrow with some photos.

nighty night all xxx
