Sagrada Suspended For Headlines - read all about it.

Sunday Sagrada has been temporarily postponed until next Sunday due to the election stuff/stress/issues OMFG!!!

This is huge news in Australia, as I type there will be a Hung Parliament (?), Whoaaa Nelly.

I don't have much to say about it (shellshock) except to remind everyone to make sure you buy the newspapers today, read them and then stick them under your beds tomorrow. Keep them for your kids.

I KNOW the world is all online and kids can just type shit into Google for themselves, but there is nothing like having a tangible piece of history in your hands.

My Aunty Nancy kept the front pages of The Sun from the first landing on Mars, in a copy of Carl Sagans Cosmos. I treasure that hard copy, the smells the feel of the dry paper between my fingers. You can't get that off a keyboard.

Happy Sunday!

Funnily enough my very own Teen Queen was recently going through the memory box of stuff that I have kept relating to all things teen queen... and there are copies of papers from the day she was born. A good friend of mine arrived with them in tow when she came to visit me in hospital. At the time - I thought - hmmm ok... But after watching teen queen trawl through them, and listen to her commentry I'm glad I kept them.

good idea Lulu.
