25th April each year is Anzac Day in Australia. A chance to reflect on the tragedy those lost in war. It’s also always a public holiday, which IMO is a very good thing (Remembrance day isn’t in England) as it accords some of the importance that reflecting on these horrors should.
It’s also my birthday… anyone else get a public holiday every year on their birthday … which gives it an interesting mix of emotions! 29 today (for the first and last time :o) – I know where I would’ve been at this age in 1917 or 1942 (and am thankful that I’m not.)
