The Week: 17th – 23rd August

End of Winter in Tuggeranong Canberra Australia 14th August 2015 Sonya Heaney Garden Eucalyptus Gum Tree Nature

Spring is in the air here. I put the heater on, immediately get hot, and then realise winter is pretty much done. The air is full of the smells of wattle and blossoms, and it’s warmer here now (twenty degrees – or sixty-eight Fahrenheit) than some countries I’ve visited in summer!

Happy Ukrainian Flag Day! (This actually is our picture from a protest in Canberra last year, but you get the idea!) Screw Putin.

This week began with my aunt’s birthday. When we were at the pub we received an offer on my late-grandmother’s house, which we accepted. The end of an era…

Our internet died this week, and getting by without it for a little while was bizarre! Also not good when I had a half-finished blog post that was due to go up because I’d stupidly scheduled it instead of saving it as a draft!

And Ashley Madison, the “dating” website that proudly encourages married people to have affairs, got hacked. Some 37 million people’s identities could be revealed, including multiple Australian politicians (I’m shocked, I tell you. Shocked!).

20thAugust2015The Russian terrorist who publicly claimed bragged he shot down MH17 before being silenced by Putin, on Thursday once again called for Russia to totally destroy Ukraine. Does anybody care Donald Trump sure doesn'2

Yes, I know he looks like Hitler. This is the Russian military leader who claimed responsibility for shooting down MH17, up to no good again this week. The “New Russia” flag in the background looks a hell of a lot like the Confederate flag, does it not?

Running out of ideas for reprehensible romance heroes?
