Ah, Melbourne – the only place in the world that’s had two sports-related public holidays each year forever, and now has a third . . .
Still, it’s been a beautiful day for it. The mercury reached 28.6C earlier this afternoon, and as far as I can tell from a brief foray to my two nearest larger strip shopping areas, the shops were humming. Well, one of them is Hawks heartland, so I guess that was inevitable.
Tomorrow the forecast maximum is 30C, with northerly winds 25 to 35 km/h for anyone interested in possible twists and turns. Not moi!
I believe something’s also happening up north this weekend.

Even though it’s an all-Queensland grand final, it is being played in Sydney (just like AFL finals).
What’s more, daylight savings starts for the southern states this Sunday – at least both teams, being from Queensland, will be at an equal disadvantage.
For all those doing things outdoors, remember your hat and sunscreen – it will be warm (hot, even) and sunny pretty well all across Australia, and enjoy the rest of Friday and the weekend, whatever you are doing.
