My dad & his family, who all hail from Ballarat, have gone for the Tiges since... well forever.
It's an affliction I have also had since an early age, barracking for the yellow & black. Watching them lose time & time again. Jumping out of my seat when they have a teeny bit of success. Celebrating like a mental case when we have a win. Every year we hope for a better year... you could say it's character building.
And Richo, what a guy.
Not everyone in our family goes for Richmond. Lucy, Mark & Rosie are Lions fans.
But they're all big cats right?
Which could account for this fella's attitude.
It hasn't all been about Richo today though. How beautiful are these flowers I picked up at the local roadside stall?
Rosie was home from kinder today as she has a problem with her front tooth. She knocked it badly and it's just hanging on by a thread. We're trying to hang on to it till we get to the specialist dentist on Thursday. Hopefully they can secure it to her other front tooth. Otherwise she will be without a front tooth for at least a couple of years. Fingers crossed!
I also made a yummy banana cake..the kids love this in their lunches...
...while listening to the radio & being watched by this little fox that once belonged to my grandmother, Edna. It is one of the only things I have of hers so it's pretty special.
Hey! Guess what? My mum picked out a winner from my giveaway and I'm excited to say that her amazing book 'Artists Tapestries' goes to.....Linda! Yay for you Linda.
