Yesterday, while the world was working, Brisbanites got the day off.
The weather was beautiful. The boys went for a bike ride with Andrew while I went for a jog. Then we went down the coast to see my sick grandmother, then across the border to have a wonderful afternoon with friends.
Praise God for fairy floss and dagwood dogs and crowds and rides and smelly animals because these things warrant a public holiday.
I'm feeling refreshed and optimistic about life.
