Census Day

yep i am a dill, i accidentally thought that yesterday was census today when it is in fact next week OOPS!! anyho read my amended post for details :) 

days like today next tuesday only happen once every five years, today next tuesday is census day, the day when everyone in Australia sits down and fills in a long ass form telling the ABS who we are and what we are up to. i think there are generally only two groups when it comes to filling in the Census forms - those who love it and those who hate it.

I am one of those freaks in the love it category, well love is a strong word but i definitely don't have any negative feelings towards it. I think there is something cool about documenting where we all are at certain points in time especially when it could be used later on to provide a information to our relatives 10's of years into the future.

So as it is next Tuesday is Census night and because we have been meaning to have lobster for dinner for several nights now I decided to make a bit of a thing of it (hey I had a free afternoon). so i set a lovely table with all that i had within my grasp and made a little questionnaire of our own to fill in. I plan to put them in a little homemade envelope and seal not to be opened until the next Census in 5 years time.

by the way you should definitely check out this inspiration shoot, love love love it!!
