The days are rushing past now. On the 5th I went with Ian to see the Sherlock Holmes movie, silly me, didn't take any photos though. Missed opportunities and hindsight!
On Wednesday 6th, as we walked into the shops to get a few supplies we were greeted with the bizarre sight of Easter buns. I have a friend who used to work there who said the reason they are out so early is that it is too much bother to move the stock around to fill the gaps after Christmas so they just start the next celebration! Customer demand my foot!
Australia Day is actually the next national event on the 26th January which "has traditionally marked the landing of Captain Arthur Phillip at Port Jackson in present-day Sydney, thereby claiming Australia for the British Empire" http://www.australiaday.com.au/studentresources/history.aspx
