Vernal Paternal? … well today is Father’s Day here in Australia and it’s also the first day of Spring. Unlike some countries where the seasons start on the solstices and equinoxes, our seasons begin on the 1st of September (Spring), 1st December (Summer), 1st March (Autumn) and 1st June (Winter). It’s a fabulous day … pleasantly warm and not a cloud in the sky.
I’m looking forward to a nice family day. I’ve already had a lovely breakfast of bacon and eggs followed by some delicious banana pancakes and I’ve been informed that we’re having a baked lamb dinner this evening. In the mean time I have a truly gigantic box of chocolates to keep me going thanks to Julie, Jessica and Jodie.
Indeed a fortunate life!
