Owing to my sister's highly complicated Moving To [almost] Melbourne schedule, we are having a beach holiday this January despite ongoing unemployment. Hooray and thank goodness. The hot weather is making its somewhat tardy debut and our horrid house was, as usual, heating up immediately, so we are incredibly grateful to have this chance to escape it. We had our first swim today, testing the waters of Westernport Bay, and it was freezing but so refreshing.
I finished off a sewing project last week, a dress for me -pattern from the Lovely Dress book- and it is perfect as a beach coverall. I'm very pleased with it.
Meanwhile the kids have been delightedly trying out their cousins' Wii. I may have to give that Just Dance game a try, but not tonight, it's still very hot.
For ANZAC Day this is so beautiful and tender
