While we were eating breakfast on the deck on Sunday this lady walked along the beach with a box on her head to keep the sun away.
I felt that this photo was a good metaphor for a couple of things. Today is Melbourne Cup Race Day and in Australia thousands of people have bought and made fabulous hats to wear to the Cup and to parties all over the country. I am off to the Rabaul Hotel for lunch today in my hat, where we will celebrate and think of home!!!
It is also a metaphor for how I feel at the moment!!! Last night I was unable to visit anyone because - yes - you guessed it - phone lines!!! I went to bed in utter disgust and thought I really can't do this anymore. A lot of the time I can't get on at all and when I do it is taking me 3 hours a day to post and visit. He-Who-Doesn't-Blog talked me out of throwing in the towel, so at the moment we are trying to think of a way to continue in these circumstances!!!
A thought is to post one day and visit the next, so I will get back to you when I've decided.
Happy Melbourne Cup day to all!!!
