Hokey Pokey on the Air-Waves

After the unfortunate shoe incident a few weeks ago when I came to the sudden and unwelcome realisation that I was turning into my own mother (eeek), and in fact losing my cool-factor, I was keen to win back some of my slipping ‘awesomeness.’

And, thanks to Phillip Island Helicopters, this weekend, my cool was positively Arctic!

The helicopter took Hubbster and the children on a scenic flight around the coast over Cape Woolamai, San Remo and Churchill Island.

“How was it?” I asked excitedly (and just a little peeved that I had missed out).
“Awesome!” the boys cheered.
“Was it good Bubble?” I asked.
Bubble grinned broadly.
“She sang the whole way around!” said Hubbster.

“Yeah. I had microphone Mummy.”
I suddenly remembered the microphone attached to the ear muffs.
“All we could all hear was Bubble singing into our headsets,” said Hubbster.
“What did you sing honey?” I asked smirking.
“Hokey Pokey,” she answered proudly.

Funny little girl!

Needless to say both boys have made me print out photos of them to take to school and kinder this week for show and tell!

Disclosure: My family received a complimentary helicopter flight. However all of the thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.



Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
