Australia Day

It was Australia Day yesterday.

Our current “willing workers on organic farms” (WWOOF) visitors were John and Karen from Ireland and Kevin from Korea.

We took them to Goulburn’s celebrations, for activities including an aboriginal smoking ceremony, a sheep-shearing demonstration, vintage cars and a man showing snakes and lizards.

It was the hottest day so far this summer, but we found a breezy spot in the shade for our picnic.

Then we went to the swimming pool, which had free entry for the day.  Crowded, but a nice way to cool down.

In the evening, we collected another wwoofer, Vincent from France.

Do you remember how our cat Brulée had been missing since our christmas holidays away?  She wandered in last night, evidently back from her own summer holidays, after nearly a month.

She’s healthy though down a little in weight.  She won’t leave me alone if I’m in the house.  The other cat, Twurts, was just as surprised.  Cara the dog is unimpressed.
