Today being Australia Day, I thought it prudent to start looking out for the first of Easter chocolate eggs to appear. I remember as if yesterday, going to a WW store last year and seeing a perfect synchronisation of dusty Christmas trees being taken down and replaced with Easter eggs. As I left WW store I noticed the first of children harassing Mum for a sugar chocolate Easter egg hit. One even kicked poor Mum in the shins. Well done Dr Spock!
H and I are both holed up behind computers but will brave the streets soon. Fortunately all Australian capitals are predicted to have torrential downpours. Many will stay indoors waving their little flags in front of the TV with one hand and a stubby in the other. Chips on the table and obstinate flies sprayed into banging their heads against the fly screen doors only to end insanely spinning around in their final death throe.
This makes it all worthwhile though;
“A thrilling burst of hitting by Andre Russell carried the West Indies to a one-wicket win over South Africa in the fourth one-day international at St George’s Park.
Half-centuries by Marlon Samuels, Darren Sammy and Russell trumped a maiden international ton by South Africa’s David Miller as the tourists chased down a victory target of 263 with nine balls to spare.
The West Indies gained their first win in the five-match series after they several times looked doomed to defeat”.
Could it get any better? Oi,oi oi.Aussi aussi.
Waking up and having had our second coffee, we switched on ABC 24 and were in time to hear the glorious news of Prince Phillip being mad (made) an Australian Knight. Can you believe it? No, we can’t. What hope have we got for this poor country when Knighthoods are still thought of as relevant. Has Australia even got a round table for Knights to sit around, or anvils to sharpen swords? Does prince Phillip know about this? Has his wife gently broken him the news?
Perhaps all this is a devious Cadbury commercial attempt to make us a bit insane so that the Easter eggs will be passively and non questioningly accepted as normal, even in January.
It is the money you know!
