Round Eleven – God Save The Queen!

Three day weekend? Wow, Happy Birthday Queenie…you rock!!!

Winter is now upon us and we are about to embark on three long months of grey, cold and miserable weather. The first round of flu is hitting hard and Melburnians have not seen the sun in days. All we feel like doing is curling up on the couch for a few days and do absolutely nothing…but what about the constant demands of modern daily life?

But wait…it’s Queen Elizabeth’s birthday! And we all know what that means – LONG WEEKEND! Who said that the monarchy was outdated and irrelevant? Perfect timing, no work on Monday and no need to buy an old lady present…this is so awesome!

And to top it all off, we have eight matches over four days to take in as we signal the end of the first half of the season. We can sense some mid-season reviews on the horizon…unless we just sleep on the couch for three days!
