Sing, stalagmite, short week

I made a stalagmite (OK, my freezer did)

I went to see The Waifs at the shabbily beautiful Forum Theatre last night. They were fabulous - the sisters' voices are gloriously powerful and Josh's guitar work is goosebump-inducing. I just love being part of a crowd all singing along with a live band. There was a lovely sing-a-long to Bridal Train last night. "All the girls arooouund Austraaaalia..."

I timed my (solo) arrival very well. I only had to hang around on my own for about 10 minutes before The Waifs came on stage. Not that I was really too bothered about being on my own in such a big crowd anyway.

It's Friday tomorrow already! Yay for public holidays (Monday was Labour Day in Victoria, to commemorate the successful campaign for an 8-hour work day).

Hey Shelley. I wish ours was in September. We have a lot of public holidays in the first half of hte year and few in the second. Other parts of Australia celebrate it at different times too.

Hi Leo. No, I haven't. They're stunning! I think that Gapstow Bridge at sunset is my favourite - I have a photo of me in front of that quaint little bridge. Thanks for sharing. And thanks for reading my blog. It makes me happy to hear you enjoy it.
