I could say that I have been out partying but that is not strictly the truth. Thursday, 26th January is Australia Day and each year on the weekend closest to Australia Day the Maleny Film Society holds an Australian Film Festival.
We bought our passes, donned our festival armbands and immersed ourselves in a selection of Australian movies. They were ‘Girl Asleep’, ‘Pawno’, ‘Broke’ and ‘Goldstone’. They were all somewhat edgy, challenging and thought-provoking. The language in ‘Pawno’ and ‘Broke’ particularly was not for the faint-hearted.
A real highlight was the attendance of well-known movie reviewer, David Stratton.
The other thing I have been working on is planning for our trip to the UK later in the year. We now have our airfares and the majority of the accommodation organised. I write about our travel plans and adventures on my other blog, Somewhere, Anywhere so please feel free to pop over and read all about it.
Today has been back to the everyday tasks – washing, ironing, menu planning, shopping and preparing meals. I have also been moving along some excess items from the workshop from when we did a bit of a clean up a couple of weeks ago. More about that in the next post.
