So we rock up to Yum Cha at the Shark Fin Inn on Sunday. 2 other couples are there; friends with whom we often eat, drink or go on road trips. We were expecting the congratulations and baby talk. We weren't expecting (though damned if we didn't have some suspicions!) one of the other couples to announce that they too are expecting a child in January 2007!
Madness. And it's not Costello. While our announcement email drew responses from 4 other couples among our extended friend group who are also expecting, 3 of those are overseas.
It's just... something in the air!
A new New Deal? - I’ll be talking to the Fabian Society in Melbourne on Wednesday night, looking at the failure of neoliberalism and options for a new “New Deal”.
