"Did you have a good break? What did you do?"
Thanks for asking. As we moved past Christmas into the New Year these are the common questions that have replaced the regulars of 2014 - "What's it like in the Senate with all the cross benchers?" and "Are Senators Abetz and Brandis really as bad as they come across?"
So staying with the holiday spirit I have had a great break: family, friends, food, surf, bird watching, reading, movies, gardening, bush walking in varying combinations.
