Politics and Elections

What a week in Australian politics - the Federal election called for September, change in leadership in the South Australian opposition, arrests, pollies opening their mouths to insert their foot...   TV news has been saturated with it.

My Mum was active in politics and  Mr Trifectagirl had been very actively involved in both of our political parties in his life. We came to the conclusion that 20 or so years ago, we were probably at the same events!

As such we'd often discuss what was going on. 

Maybe this is another reason the surgery anniversary is hitting hard.

The house is very quiet even with a 2 year old boy in residence.   I'm very conscious of both the lack of insults being slung at the TV as particular politicians come on screen and open their mouths, and the conversations I'm not having.
