Am I EVER glad that I only had 3 days of work this week! I was so exhausted from jet lag that I ended up getting a cold - so by last night I was ready for the weekend!!! Although I have to say I HATE that my coughing woke me up at 7am on a Saturday - that is just wrong!

Today is ANZAC day here in Australia - Anzac Day marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War at Gallipoli in Turkey. It is the day where we honour all members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC).

For anyone who wants to learn more about the battle in WWI you should watch Mel Gibson's movie 'Gallipoli' - which is fantastic.


  1. I think I may just watch that movies. My Aussie colleagues know so much about the US, and it is so embassing that I know so little about their home.
    How is ANZAC Day celebrated?

  2. Hope you feel better soon. We are exhausted after the week's agenda, without jet lag.
