It’s a long weekend here in Australia this weekend due to it being Australia’s National Day today. Since this public holiday falls on a Saturday, which is already a day off work, Monday is a public holiday as well. I like the way they Aussies think.
Melbourne weather is so weird, it can change 15 degrees from one day to another. On Thursday we had 38 or 39 degrees but today the forecast says a top temperature of 23 degrees for the day. I know I just told you it’s a public holiday but Simon is working anyway. He has actually just signed a contract for a new job and he’s just helping his old boss out a bit before he starts his new job. I’m about to get started with my cleaning (I know our lifes are thrilling) but we’ll be heading to a friend’s house in Altona later on for a drinks and a BBQ. No Australia day is complete without a barbie!
