I'm going to have to come up with more imaginative blog titles... Today my sister and I headed north, whilst - being a Sunday - most businesses were closed, any that weren't seemed to be doing a bustling trade, so I didn't want to interrupt anyone to ear-bash them about politics :P.
I did have a quick chat with a bloke working at the Violet Town petrol station who told me that above anything else he and his family are hoping for rain on their 500 acres - if only that could be legislated...
From Violet Town we went north to Dookie, into Shepparton to pick up my first campaign banner from Officeworks and then we stopped for lunch at The Connection next to Kids'Town playground. We then continued over to Mooroopna and Tatura, through Murchison East to Nagambie.
We then headed down to Seymour to pick up my niece who was returning from her father's place - there aren't enough trains for him to bring her all the way home to Euroa and still get back to his house in Melbourne - something I hope to change.
Rosie recently borrowed the first four seasons of Kitchen Cabinet and we've been watching an episode or two each night as part of my 9 year old niece's political education, tonight we watched the Nick Xenophon episode. She has decided that I need to win the election because she wants to meet Annabel Crabb and make her shashliks and fruit salad for dinner. Please, people of Murray! Make her wish come true :D.
