March 7. Day 66. You are my sunshine
Not today. Today there was genuine joy. Happiness is enough sun to dry your clothes after days and days of rain. Happiness is no longer having to rifle through the bottom of the undies drawer to find clean smalls.
Happiness is also a walk in the sun and today that happened and the destination was one of my favourite places when the sun shines - South Bank Parklands.
Like just about every day this week my footwear got soaked, the difference is that today the water was in the water park not from the stuff bucketing down and forming great streams and puddles everywhere.
The socks and shoes are no less wet but like the washing, the reaction is much different. The soggy footwear came when I was talking to Michelle who was playing in the waterpark with her adorable toddler 11-month-old Thomas. Thomas has been walking for only three weeks but there was no stopping him. The youngster from Townsville was taking to Aquativity like a duck to water and the glee on his face was obvious. Hopefully
the change in weather will ensure the visitors return home to Townsville on the weekend with a sunny picture of Brisbane in their minds. It threatened to be a little bleak up until today.
