Time to catch up on my blog!
I recently had a wonderful nearly-3-weeks in Melbourne. It was a spontaneous visit inspired by homesickness and very worthwhile.
It began with a wonderfully Australian ANZAC Day at the MCG with Dad and Steve Hanslow. Dad managed to get us seats in the members stand, so my meat pie and sauce came on a plate with a knife and fork! (I had dreamt about that pie for many, many months...Mmmm!)
The pre-game entertainment was great. Here are the first of the parachutists falling onto the ground. You can see the first one is carrying the great Australian flag.
Then there was the army band, Wendy Matthews, some others I've already forgotten, and then the Last Post. I joined in the National Anthem heartily! It's good to be Australian.
The game result wasn't so cheering but it was a great day despite that. You can see that we all had a good time.
