Happy Birthday Canberra!

| | Comments (0)

My only Canberra Day activity was to get up at stoopid o'clock and go out to see the balloons.  And after hearing about the queues for food and toilets I'm kinda glad I didn't battle the hoards to partake in any of the rest of the festivities of the day.

Went and visited Neil.  Was going to buy something, but queue was all the way back through the pavilion and out the door.  They were guestimating getting through 140 dozen eggs that morning!

In the evening the sweetie and I shared a bottle of bubbly and toasted a Happy Birthday to Canberra.

@CLBradley and I were going to do that at 11:15 this morning, but somehow didn't get around to it.  So I raised a bottle of water instead.
