The Week: 29th August – 4th September

Spring in Canberra!

Happy Father’s (I always want to say Fathers’ – apostrophe at the end) Day to whoever has it today. We will be going to a restaurant for lunch with… whoever can make it!

The anniversary or both the beginning and end of World War Two was this week, but all I saw on the internet was people marking the anniversary of Harry Potter going to Hogwarts. I thought that was very, very sad. Do they even teach history in school these days?!

This week also marked the third anniversary of my father’s mother’s death. Everyone is saying, ‘I can’t believe it’s already three years!’ whereas I’m thinking that since then so much has happened, and I’ve been through the illness and death of my other grandmother (who has been gone a year and a half)… Time goes fast.

Norcia Italy Sonya Oksana Heaney June 2016

That’s not Verona; it’s earthquake-damaged Norcia, from when we were staying there in June.

We booked some accommodation in Verona this week, for early next year. I’ve never been to Verona before, even though most people seem to go on their first trip to Italy.

There were fights, multiple stabbings, and hundreds of arrests at the Notting Hill Carnival in London over the past weekend, which is shocking. I used to live in Notting Hill, and our street was blocked off by police during the festival time, but this year cars have been trashed etc.
