This post was going to be about something completely different, but the emotion of this historic event got the better of me in the end.
Mrs BobinOz popped down the road to the supermarket today, something she hasn’t been able to do for almost 9 months. When she got back home, she told me about the street party atmosphere.
Apparently, the party had started at 10 o’clock in the morning and was to go on until one o’clock in the afternoon. Strange day to have a party, a Wednesday, but this was no ordinary Wednesday.
Yes, our local Coles supermarket had reopened at last.
It was already approaching two o’clock in the afternoon when she told me about it, but I grabbed my camera anyway and went down to see if I could catch any of the action.
I wasn’t disappointed.
Who knows how much fun it would have been if I’d got there earlier……
