This was our best week ever! Georgia's Grandma read the bush ballad Waltzing Matilda (Banjo Paterson) to us on Wednesday and Luke's Grandad read to us on Friday.

|A swagman (Wikipedia)|
The song narrates the story of a swagman making a cup of tea at a bush camp and capturing a sheep to eat. When the sheep's owner arrives with three policemen to arrest the worker, he jumps in and drowns in a small waterhole and goes on to haunt the site.

And here it is with...an Irish flag in the background! Susan, you're a star!
