If you want to try us Tony, Bring it on.

Following a union meeting, an announcement was made for people who wanted to attend Bill Shortens' budget reply speech. I went as I figured this was a bucket list sort of thing so i stuck my hand up and said yes please.

It was simple enough. Rock up to Parliament House. Get my name ticked off on the list, and be escorted over to the Opposition Party room These two people were also there, but no names will be mentioned here.

As with any party event, the local members all came and gave a little speech, along with the Deputy leader, Tanya Plibersek.
Kate Lundy addressing the group

Gai Brodtmann. Andrew Leigh also addressed the crowd, but i forgot to take a photo of him

Deputy leader of the ALP, Tanya Plibersek also addresses the gathering

Cameras and mobile phones had to be cloaked before they let us into the visitors’ seats in the chamber, so i have no photos of Bill speech. 

This was the queue to cloak phones, bag and anything else. 

My opinion of the speech. If he is the leader who roared that night, why did it take him so long to come out swinging.

Footy food - Chiefs

The Brumbies were due to up against the Waikato Chiefs and this left us with a decision to make.

Our garden had produced an abundance of zucchinis’. This left us with one option for this series.

Zucchini slice. We used the recipe from, but altered it a little.

We used a Gluten Free flour and we used Salmon rather than Tuna.

Wrapped in al-foil and packed into the Trusty Tupperware, it was still warm at the ground when we ate it at half time.

And as for the game, The Brumbies won 41 to 23.
