Everyone in Canberra has an opinion on the events of this week: a new Prime Minister, our first female Prime Minister, the swiftness and surprise of it all, the total annihilation of Rudd's support and leadership!
Ella ended the week in fine spirits even though the rest of us still felt a little shell shocked, especially after watching bits of Kevin's excruciatingly sad farewell speech in the PM's courtyard.
We talked to Ella about Julia on Thursday. She likes Julia's name a lot, certainly a lot better than Kevin's. It was as good a reason as any to celebrate with a chocolate cake, made with her Daddy, complete with green sprinkles and a fresh strawberry. I hope Kevin was able to end the week on such an upbeat note too.
