I know from experience that this day is always better when there are some others around to support you. If you have some free time on Sunday, get down there and cheer them on!
I am going to be taking some days off with my family to head down to Old Latrobe where my Mother and Sisters reside. My family has yet to meet Zoë and are eager to do so. I am looking forward to taking some time to reboot and recharge the batteries for when we get back. So, if you don’t see me for a few days, don’t freak out.
