Australia Day

Thought I'd better mark Australia Day, so here's the front cover of today's Sydney Morning Herald. Surreal artwork by Reg Mombassa.

It's thankfully cooler today, much better for a day when people are out and about.

I've just done a catchup of blog entries on films and books and more (can you tell it's work tomorrow, holidays over?).

Yesterday the extended family gathered to celebrate a big-0 birthday, and just sitting around talking across the generations was one of the best days of the holidays.  Hearing more of Dad's stories of the RAF in WW2, talking sushi trains and Thai food with the older kids, talking books and films and who's done what, all sorts of conversations big and small, and much laughter.  So good.
