Live coverage of Australia Day 2012
including Darling Harbour fireworks.

Watching the live stream from Darling Harbour brought back memories of the year
 I took my 5' tall, 78 year old mother to the Australia Day fireworks.

A pack of 6' tall teenagers formed a circle around her
 to protect her from the jostling crowd.

  C'mon Grandma we'll look after you, they said.
Stand clear, Grandma coming through, they yelled.
Laughter all round. AusDay, 1996.

I went back to work on Wednesday but some clients forgot to inform office they will be going away on holidays so had a quiet week, next year I will take more time off over the New Year break. 

Mowed back and front yards yesterday. a hot day, today have no energy which is annoying as I had planned to go down to the Sydney Festival 2012
 http://www.sydneyfestival.org.au/info/ 
which started late yesterday with Festival First Night.. Huge program of events scattered over multiple sites from 7 January till 29 January.


 I have no work rostered on Friday so will try to attend as many free events as I can and seriously thinking of  staying overnight.
