Yes, I may do a review on this event … but I will be no soft touch I can assure you! I am very hard-bitten and cynical.

(And bitter and crusty even *tee hee*)

The Glebe Park event looks like a very good idea. Nice to see the Govt put this on.
Sleeping in will be nice when the kids get old enough to understand the concept. We’re cleaning house, making beer and cakes, helping kids decorate hats, and planning to watch the race with friends.

I think the break ins sound like the most fun so far.

Extra 100% happy bonus sleep-in day!

Yep, don’t plan to even think about getting out of bed until the sun’s over the yard arm. Don’t get many of those.

Then it’s this:
