Happy Birthday Canberra!

Canberra 100 balloonMy home town of Canberra  had a birthday this week and turned … wait for it… one hundred!

I know, I know, many of you come from towns that are hundreds and hundreds of years old but, hey, it’s a milestone nonetheless.

We dragged ourselves out of bed at 5:30am to see the birthday balloons… pretty, yes? I think I might have some like this on my next birthday.

Balloon against a pink sunrise I should have taken a photo of some of the many MANY dogs people dragged along. I can’t understand why they do it.  A lot of dogs are completely freaked by balloons. I know if I took mine they would be in my lap (they are not small) or up a tree.  Or even worse, latched on to some kiddies arm. I would be stressed, expecting them to take a big revolting nervous dump on the grass that I would be forced to pick up. Sorry dogs, (not sorry), you can stay at home.

About gillianloves

I decided there was not enough laughing in my life so I set to and started to design greeting cards in addition to my other design work. I'm happy to make people smile and to show that giving something really good takes as little effort as sending something pretty ordinary. I fully believe that if you can laugh about it someday you may as well laugh about it today. And also that we are just about as happy as we try to be. But you should know, Pollyanna I'm not. Even I might want to slap her after a day or so.
