A few weeks later Juliet visited and presented me with a Jade plant cutting in a cute terracotta pot. Woohoo! Good luck come my way. Originally, I had put this in the area where the other potted succulents were going to live. It became apparent after a month that this area wasn’t the best for pots. The place that I had chosen was the top of an old filing cabinet. What happened was the top of the filing cabinet became hot during the day. I guess all that heat didn’t do the pots any good because the succulents were suffering in their pots even with watering.
Both the lyrics and melody of the official anthem have been criticised in some quarters as being dull and unendearing to the Australian people. A National Party senator, Sandy Macdonald , said in 2001 that "Advance Australia Fair" is so boring that the nation risks singing itself to sleep, with boring music and words impossible to understand.  A parliamentary colleague, Peter Slipper , said that Australia should consider another anthem.  One suggested replacement was " I Am Australian ", notably in 2011 by former Victorian Premier Jeff Kennett .  
Increasingly, researchers believe we’re hardwired for hope and I can believe it. It’s why humankind hasn’t acted to stop climate change. Perhaps it’s the reason some people don’t vaccinate their children. It’s the voice in our head that says, “It’ll be OK”. And it’s a story I’ve heard repeated a number of times by other mothers of prem babies. Mothers who very nearly didn’t make it to hospital, because the desire to believe all will be OK is so pervasive.
