A New Day; A New Government and Green Eggs

Welcome to my Sunday.

A new government was elected last night. After 11 years in the political wilderness they're bursting with ideas, but have come up a little short on real policy. It will be interesting to see what the new team can bring. Australians decided it was time for a change, and I have to agree. John Howard has been a pretty good PM, tough, wily and committed to and passionate about Australian values. He just seemed to have run out of puff, and most of his team looked very tired, and old! Hopefully the high energy levels of the new government will carry through to some much-needed ideas and policies for our struggling health and education systems, as well as continuing to manage Australia's prosperity well. They've got three years to prove themselves before we go around the mulberry bush again!

To celebrate the new government, Romily and I had green eggs for breakfast!

Yes, they are indeed green scrambled eggs, in homage to the much-loved Dr Seuss. Rom was quite taken with this idea.

(Just add four drops of green food colouring to the pre-scrambled eggs and milk mix and voila!)

Enjoy your Sunday.

We're off to buy a new carseat for Rom, as she's just about outgrown her old one. My little girl is growing up fast!

I really hope for all of you, the new government will do something about the health insurance issue. Green eggs, wonderful!

Someone's got to ask - Where's the ham???

kcamou said...

She's precious! I wonder what my kids would say if I served them green eggs???

I was wondering about the ham too, LOL.

We were a happy family here on Saturday as the election results came in. Here's to a bright new future for Australia!

Unfortunately, that is what they do....grow up too fast.
But then they become such interesting little beings and come home from School at age 7 and announce, "I am voting for John Howard, we all are....because Kevin Rudd eats his ear wax!!'.....then wanted to watch the "race" live on Saturday night...devastated when he found out there wasn't an actual one! JH would have kicked b... then! Tracey

She certainly is - that photo just shows how she's turning into a proper little girl from the chubby faced toddler she was not that long ago. Love the green eggs - inspired mummy! My kids were never into Dr Seuss but that's a good reason to check out the books for anyone with littlies :o)

I wish I had though of green eggs all those years ago when trying to get Alex to eat eggs! Clever Mum Award to you.

I too wondered about the ham. I just hope they don't spend all the money that has been saved up for the future by the previous Govt. It will be interesting to see how things stand in 3 yrs time.
