On this day, 26 January 1788, the first ships carrying colonists arrived at Sydney Cove. Those early days of colonisation were very difficult - we've come a long way since then.
So today is Australia Day. Generally we don't get too involved in doing anything special, although it is a public holiday so if I wasn't already on holidays I would be having a day off. I might go and buy some lamingtons a bit later!!
I've been off work for two weeks now, and yet I still haven't managed to get everything done that I wanted to do. One of those things was to catch up on reviews...instead I find myself falling further behind!
I have managed to do a couple of things that have been hanging around forever though, and on Monday I have a couple of workmen coming to have a look at some things for me. Hopefully by the time I go back to work on Wednesday I will have done all the things I wanted to do.
