Many, many, many years ago I was born on 'Show Day' a brilliant Victorian Public Holiday to celebrate the
Royal Melbourne Show.
This holiday was later taken away from me by Mr. Jeff Kennet, an action which I took quite personally.
So this year my mother shouted myself, my husband & my kids to the Royal Melbourne Show on the opening weekend & I have to say that it is still as exciting as it was many, many years ago.
Show bags, laughing clowns, amazing rides, baby farm animals...
The only thing that I found different was that I was extremely nervous on the Ferris Wheel & needed to stick my head in the show grounds map so I didn't freak out in front of the kids.
