Warracknabeal in Victoria is quite a large country town in the barley belt. There are impressive hotels and the shops are busy. The intersections are adorned with statues of dogs and sheep and bags of grain. I stumble across a Ladies Rest Room that has once been a shop and now provides a haven from the hustle and bustle. There are sitting rooms furnished with inviting antique armchairs and couches. There are mirrors and sideboards and flowers in vases. For the mums there are full baby change facilities and a sink and a basic kitchen to boil a jug or warm a bottle. The toilets, like in the old days are just outside the back door. Upon re entering ‘the house’ I feel like I am in an old aunt’s home back in the fifties. The only thing missing is a real cuppa, from a teapot with a cosie and homemade scones.
