We celebrated Australia Day yesterday in true-blue style with friends, a BBQ, slippery slide into Terrigal Lagoon, cricket and soccer....in between an almost continuous deluge of rain. Not that the kids seemed to mind! Disappointing weather but there were lots of laughs with the large contingent of adults sheltered under leaky tents and tarpaulins!
For overseas readers, Australia Day is a national holiday and marks the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British Ships. In contemporary Australia, our celebrations reflect the diverse society and landscape with community and family events.
With the wet weather continuing today, building work has ceased here and at client projects too. J has a mate over and it's a perfect day for the movies so we have that planned for this afternoon.
Meanwhile, I'm catching up with some e-mails and blog reading.
Did you know The Pantone Colour of the Year 2015 has been announced?
Gotta say, I'm not a fan. Reminds me of the late 70's when burgundy was all the rage. Unlike the colour of 2014, which I interpreted here with pink highlights, I think I'll be skipping this colour trend entirely unless I creatively view it as copper-like, which has not waned at all in popularity.
Personally though, my newest, favourite colour is blue.
Dirty blue, teal, aqua and royal. I love them all!
I've already bought a few items to add pops of blue to our monochrome black and white interiors:
Now I'm dreaming of an accent chair for J's room ....
... in blue, of course!
