The religious freedom granted in the Constitution was never more apparent to me than by the absence of public holidays over Easter. While several Australians of my acquaintance took advantage of Good Friday and Easter Monday for an extended stay seaside, over here all work and no play makes Jack, of whatever his religious persuasion, a dull boy.
I kept myself occupied with films, drinks and polishing the draft of my manuscript, which I’m about to submit to a trusted professional for its first full-length reading after I finish this post. (Intake of breath.)
Hope everyone enjoyed themselves. I felt a very long way from home. And it’s still barely above freezing! I can’t believe it. Apparently it was colder at Easter than it was Christmas Day. Jesus.
