Get Wet

It started out as a bucketful of water and ended up with our balcony getting a decent wash.

Is there anything funner than pouring a jug of water on your sibling's head? Not in this house.

To keep the kids occupied while she cooked dinner tonight, Tracey set up the water play activity centre we bought for one of the kids a few Christmases back. It's for two or three year olds. Pouring some water in the top funnel makes wheels turn and it's all a bit of fun.  She didn't really think it would hold their attention for too long but it certainly out performed her expectations today.

When I arrived home the kids were already wet and there were lots of laughs and shouts. By the time I sat down with a coffee they were chasing each other around the balcony with cups and jugs of water.

Fortunately, they were so wrapped up in drenching each other none of them thought to throw water on us.

It all ended in giggles and a show of camaraderie with arms round each other as we marched them off to the bathroom for a rinse and towel down.

They couldn't have had more fun if we'd hired a clown and let them chase him around with pinata sticks.

About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.
