Only when Useful

Summer brings with it thoughts of Cricket and swimming.

Trophies on the cabinet are evidence of a successful winter.

Gone are the days of freezing on the sidelines, cheering when the lad scores a goal.

Forgotten are the boots which brought such joy on the birthday, and elation as they helped bring glory to the boy.

Neglected they sit, sideways, tied together by the laces, under other old shoes in the bottom of the wardrobe.

First time I have picked up a pencil in a week. Not too bad.

Australia Day in Sydney

Australia day 2014 195 Australia day 2014 180 Australia day 2014 175 Australia day 2014 155 Australia day 2014 140 Australia day 2014 133 Australia day 2014 070 Australia day 2014 062 Australia day 2014 015 Australia day 2014 004

Besides a lot of citizenship ceremonies and bar-b-ques going on around Australia, Sydney hosts a vintage car exhibition in its streets. January is also Sydneyfest month so there are many activities on in Sydney surrounding that. Also, it is the start of the Chinese new year and there are mainly Chinese cultural events happening in the Darling Harbour precinct, and around Chinatown with that. January is certainly the month to come to Sydney if you are thinking of visiting. The weather might get a little hot on some days ( up to 42 degrees C or 114 F), but mostly it is mild summer, with sea breezes. I hope you enjoy these photos taken yesterday of some of the festivities, displays and patriotic people.
