    Is my daughter in the right year group for her age?!

    In Victoria students transfer to secondary school at age 12. They begin in Year 7 and can leave school after Year 10. If they choose to stay on for VCE which is the equivalent of A levels, they do Year 11 and 12.

    I hope those with Scottish ancestry managed to see Eilish McColgan winning the 10000m in a games record time. She was magnificent!

    Why can’t we just celebrate everyone’s achievements?

    Put in lionesses and you’ll get hundreds of hits, complete with fireworks Peak tv audience of 17.4 million.

    The mixed triathlon was excellent. I felt sorry for anyone competing between 5-8pm yesterday as the whole country was watching the Lionesses winning the European Cup!️

    There’s a lot of coverage on the BBC here and it was announced 3 million tickets have been sold . All the athletes interviewed have said how great it’s been to participate in front of large noisy audiences again, such a difference from the Olympics. I also like the events you don’t see elsewhere, such as mixed relay swimming even if Australia beat England.

    Australia has made an excellent start in the pool so you might see some coverage on Oz TV!

    Brilliant triathlon from Alex Yee. First gold for England.🥳

    Just can't settle here

    As opposed to Plymouth, Bristol Rovers, Exeter, Leyton Orient, Crawley Town, Charlton….. and I think cotton mills were Lancashire rather than Yorkshire.

    Dual Citizenship travel

    We’ve just had a visit from some Aussie friends, one of whom moved to Australia from the UK in his twenties. He travelled on his Aussie passport, only to be challenged by the immigration officer and asked for his British passport! He was held up for some time and told in no uncertain terms that he should have travelled on his British passport.

    The Official Weather Thread

    Last night I think it went down to 25 degrees but I’d forgotten how hot it is in the bedrooms upstairs! It was like being back in a Bendigo summer!

    Spain has recorded over 350 heat related deaths in a 5 day period. The UK is not used to these soaring temperatures and for many it’s counterintuitive to close windows and curtains when it’s hot.

    Just lost my winning streak of 144🥲. I had the first letter wrong 3 times…..

    Credit card refusal

    Yes I know it’s basically about your income. My point is that if your income is the basic pension from the UK government you are never going to qualify for a credit card, no matter how many hundreds of thousands you have in your bank account.

    Credit card refusal

    Yes you’re right. I’ve had a Barclaycard for over 20 years but as soon as I hit 70 the spending limit was reduced to £250. This is not brilliant but I get round it by paying it off every week. Like Marisa I always pay the bill to avoid interest and use it for the cash back it gives. I have applied for other cards but no one is interested in how much money you have in the bank. If you have just a pension as income it’s an automatic refusal.

    Australian and UK Covid Responses

    Nothing has changed. When it gets too hot the girls just wear shorter skirts

    It wasn’t a walk over.

    Wimbledon

    As much as anything is important at a press conference. Aren’t they just an occasion for the player to say how well their opponent played and to thank their coach/mum/dad/neighbour for helping them achieve what they’ve achieved?

    Wimbledon

    Wimbledon has always had very strict rules on dress. A red cap and red trainers break the rules. I don’t see how that’s an example of prissy irrelevancy. I see it as an example of a player choosing to flaunt the rules.

    Wednesday June 29 was a hard one so it was nice to see “phew” on my sixth go.

    Interesting Facts about where you live.

    The Australian census date was 10 August 2021 and the UK date 21 March 2021. We left Australia April 30 2021 so I’m feeling insignificant.

    And finally from Bawtry, how about this for an address? The Nottinghamshire border is just a couple of hundred metres from this house built in 1800.
