Anyway, here I am dressed up for the Corrigin Australian Day Breakfast. I had fun with the temporary tattoos, though you can see only one in the photo. The other essential item for my annual Australia Day costume is the earrings, miniature Australia-shapes, with the flag on them (you can see them in the second photo). I’ve had the earrings for more than twenty years and remember them as being only a few dollars when I bought them, so they’ve done well.
After attending the breakfast with five of the Murphlets and my beloved, I had a relaxing day – watched the women’s final of the Australian Open Tennis, a little of the Australia versus India cricket test, and also took the Murphlets to the local pool for a cool down, and the annual bombie competition. Lots of fun.
Also finished reading three books – Victory, by Gary Crew, a wonderful Aussie author, and two little chapter books from the Captain Cal series.
All in all a pretty good day – community, family, sport, and, of course, good books
I hope you had a similarly full and enjoyable Australia Day if you’re an Aussie and, if you’re not, that you spared a thought for Australia – a pretty good country, if I do say so myself.
