I don’t know if there’s another source for the phrase “Ever lovin’ Adelaide” but for me it’s a phrase I’ve always associated with “ABBA – The Movie”. There’s one point in the movie where, as the DJ Ashley makes his way around Australia, following ABBA on tour, he tells his manager he needs to go to Adelaide, to which the manager replies, “Ever lovin’ Adelaide”. It’s a phrase which has just stuck on amongst friends, many of whom actually come from Adelaide. Well, today I’ve spent most of the day in “Ever lovin’ Adelaide”.
After the last few days of near continuous activity, Sue and I have needed a bit of a break, so we’ve spent the day close to home.
Late this morning we went out to pick up some brochures for a planned Barossa tour tomorrow, which we considered over a coffee. And then, after lunch, Sue went to a movie, “Mao’s Last Dancer” while I visited some colleagues here, one of whom I’ll work closely with in the future.
And then later this afternoon we went for a drive up into the Adelaide Hills, visiting Mount Lofty which was reasonably well fogged in, and then onto Hahndorf which is a beautiful little town.
