Over in New Zealand, we have spent the day rejoicing with Samoa for their 50th year anniversary of their independence from New Zealand in 1962. All over the country, schools had special talks and celebrations, churches held sermons and museums and galleries opened up for tours showing the rich Samoan history, art and culture.
Way to go, Samoa!!
Also, a pinch and a punch to you all, because today is the first of June! And a very happy Queen’s birthday weekend to everyone, especially the Queen, who is celebrating her diamond jubilee.
