No exercise today – I’m feeling weird in the guts so figure running isn’t the best idea.
I woke up at 5.00 am and couldn’t sleep so started rearranging my bedroom then got over the idea but I’d chucked all the books off the bookcase onto the bed so had to finish up. I’ve still got a box of papers to sort though but other than that, things are looking much better (I did go back to bed for a nap after I put the books back).
Yesterday we went to the Immigration Museum to see the kimono exhibition before Japanese class. Very interesting – beautiful fabrics and designs. There was a big sign at the entrance saying no photography allowed because light ruins the fabrics and some stupid woman was taking pics just near it so I made sure she knew! Why do people think these things don’t apply to them?
We looked through a couple of the other displays – all fascinating.
After going to this museum, and the one in Tassie recently, you’ve got to really wonder about the history of this country – what are we saying here: this is the culture we destroyed by white settlement, this is the damage we’ve done to the country, these are the people who come here and we treat like shit. Really not a proud heritage! It’d be nice to think that’s all in the past but I can’t see it happening.
