So I put up a cheerful site - no one wants to visit, cos it's not controversial it's 'happy'.

I'm getting a bit fed up with it, really - I DO know people outside of QL lol

May be time to cultivate those contacts, hmm?

Children smash open a

"Piñata".

The piñata is a brightly-coloured paper container filled with sweets and/or toys. It is hung from the ceiling. The children are blindfolded and take turns trying to hit the piñata with a stick until it breaks spilling its contents onto the floor.

LMAO
