This is what the Australian ABC says at 6am on Friday, 24th of August, 2018:

“A noon showdown for the leadership of the Liberal Party today may seal the political fate of Malcolm Turnbull and decide who becomes the next prime minister.

But the three leadership aspirants — Peter Dutton, Julie Bishop and Scott Morrison — are still waiting for the Solicitor-General to decide whether Mr Dutton is even eligible to sit in Parliament. . . . “

The soft boiled eggs that Peter cooked for breakfast were perfect. I ate my warmed up crispy bread-roll with the egg, I also had some fresh strawberries with strawberry jam on one half of the bread-roll. And I took all my vitamins. We both also had a great cup of coffee for our breakfast.

At nine o’clock we started watching the Insiders’ program on ABC TV. The politics that were discussed upset me a great deal. I mean I should be used to this sort of political talk  by now where everything gets blamed on labor. But somehow it got to me today more than usual. I just could not keep my cool. Maybe I should stop watching these interviews where no question gets answered properly and were outrages lies are repeated ad  nauseam. Soon Peter handed me a bit of brandy to calm my upset stomach. This bit of brandy that I sipped very slowly, actually made me feel a whole lot better.

Later on for  brunch we had baked camenbert cheese with some bread and a glass of red wine. We also had a bit of vanilla ice-cream with apple sauce. Luckily my stomach had settled sufficiently, and I could enjoy this excellent meal. I enjoyed it very much indeed!

I could not insert a picture in this post, but I try now to insert some pictures here:
