anzac 100

He made poppies at daycare. He told me "ANZAC Day is about eating biscuits, and the soldiers wear special helmets in case they bump their head on the war".

She had a quiet day at home with me, while the boys were at Underwater World and the beach. The highlight was our evening stroll around the neighbourhood and this spectacular sunset. I think it was the first really beautiful one she's looked at.

100 years since the Gallipoli landing. I spent the day hearing snippets of stories on the kitchen radio, reflections, different perspectives of the event. The whole thing leaves me feeling confused and sad - but so removed.
