Everyone has times in their lives when their parents or other relatives embarass them. However my mother took it to a whole new level.
My mum was (and still is) an entertainer. From when I was young I remember going to see her in shows wearing the most outrageous costumes. And for a few years I even joined her in performing. Yet when my mum left the stage she quite often would wear her costumes out in public and even to pick me up from school. I remember the time she was a promotional clown for the opening of a Kmart in my local area – and my mum went up to all my school friends and their parents – hugging them in a clowny over the top fashion.
I also remember her coming to pick me up from school as an elf and a fairy.
To this day she loves to dress up and entertain children and adults a like with her own small business as well as being a school librarian and involved in the local community theatre.
