5. Festival. Mini Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras aka Pancake Day aka Shrove Tuesday, the day before Lent (which means Spring).........It's not Spring time here.... we're quite out of sync. Let's opt out of the calender for the northern hemisphere, it doesn't really suit us at all!

Have a whinge! Hot Cross Buns (traditionally for Friday of Easter) were put out on sale weeks ago just after Christmas. Well, so much for that little custom. Every event is a sales target.

Yes our local supermarket has hot-cross-buns for sale in January.

Already there is a whole aisle full of Easter eggs.

Is that a didgeridoo I see?

This is very short for a dig, am not sure, surely the other is a folk 'instrument' with bottle caps that rattle. A dig appears on Feb 25.

should read 'didg'/ didgeridoo, not 'dig'
