Monday 30th May 2016


A sad farewell today.

It was Agnes' funeral. We collected Kin from Downer (she also used to work at Westminster House with Agnes), & headed to Charnwood for the service. There we met up with Rachel, Miles & Virginia, all of whom also worked at the High Commission too.

There was a gathering afterwards, where we had a brief chat with Agnes' husband Bevan, & a couple of their daughters, Donna & Gabrielle. Geoff & I farewelled Agnes in our own way, with a drink at the Old Canberra Inn.

A fairly subdued day, with the funeral. But in the evening I went over to a friend's place for a beer, and ended up being an uncomfortable witness to one side of a slow motion SMS relationship break-up. A beer turned into quite a few beers...
