The weirdest long weekend reading guide

Posted on Sat, 12 Jun 2010 by midcenturyjo

… and thanks for the long weekend!

Let me explain. It’s a long weekend in most (but not all) of Australia. We are having an extra day off because it’s Queen Elizabeth II ‘s birthday. Except that was back in April and I live in a country that is slowly moving towards a republic. Just a good Aussie excuse of a three day weekend. So happy belated birthday Liz, Queen of  the Commonwealth realms: the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Jamaica, Barbados, the Bahamas, Grenada, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Tuvalu, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Belize, Antigua and Barbuda, and Saint Kitts and Nevis. I bet they all celebrate your birthday on different days too! Does that mean 16 birthday cakes? For the rest of you welcome to our latest reading guide.

Blame wikipedia Dale. I think those 16 countries are the ones she is recognised queen of as opposed to commonwealth nations. But hey more countries means more cake 🙂

You always compose a great list of discovered blogs: I am loving the fact that you added Kim Myles I had no idea that she had a blog. Thanks and have a great weekend 🙂
