sydney rocked.. much better australia day than I have ever had in canberra. It just shows that canberrans are too tight arsed and prudish to put on a decent party…

Cotter Bush Picnic was fun last year. Sadly, it coincides with toddler naptime and the hottest part of the day.

I’ll be off killing endangered species, thats always fun.
