Gina from Fan my Flame made it, along with over 80 other matchbox books! I am so glad I succumbed to temptation and bought one.

This is Children's book week in Queensland - maybe all over Australia- I am not sure about that. Every year Mackay City Council Library Services holds a fantastic parade in conjunction with the local Walkerston State School and the St. John's Catholic Primary school. As My grandchildren attend the State School, of course I have to go to watch. The theme this year was supposed to be "Your favourite story book character", but there were lots of TV and film characters. Perhaps they don't read much at home!

We had 6 mm of welcome rain yesterday - the first for over a month. We should be back to beautiful sunny days again for a while now - the sort of weather which makes you glad to be alive.

We had dinner at the Gardens Cafe a couple of nights ago with some visiting friends. The cafe has only been opening at night for a few weeks, the food is very fancy but tasted delicious.
