anzac day

For those of you not in AUstralia or New Zealand today is Anzac Day.
It is a day when we remember those who have fallen in war and those that returned having served.
There is the Dawn Service, the March and the Fly-over, going down the RSL (Returned Services League) to drink a pot of beer and play a game of Two-Up and the remembering those comrades that are no longer around and then head off to the MCG to see Collingwood and Essendon 'battle it out'.

It's 11 years since Anzac Day has fallen on a Saturday and most shops are going to be closed until 1pm.
The Cottage will be opening then.


  1. I missed the dawn service in Hyde Park this morning... 5am start. Arghhh!

  2. the dawn service is always so is hard to find anyone with dry eyes.


Please leave a message for me.
