About Bloody Time



We were there. The atmosphere was buoyant, before and after the PM's speech. Many complaints about the opposition leader's speech, and many turned their backs on the screen.

D'Arcy weathered the speeches reasonably well.



We saw friends, and had there been a breeze you could see that the three flags are the Aboriginal Flag, the Torres Strait Islands Fland and the Australian Flag



And a surprise performance of "From Big Things Little Things Grow"

Very cool.

Yeah, it was great. And good for D'Arcy to be there for such an occasion.

Wow, they're great photos. It was good, wasn't it?

Mummy/Crit said...

Oh yes! Fabulous. I talked to my mum, who works in the house, but she couldn't get out to see the coverage, so I filled her in on the Brendan Nelson back-turning. She said that it happened in the Great Hall too....

Hey there - it was good to meet you today!

You too Hil! And funny that Jay realised almost immediately how we all fit together!
