We’re not mad that others are at the beach – we’re mad we aren’t allowed to relax outside with mates as well
This week while Sydneysiders celebrate “picnic day” – restrictions being eased so they can meet up outside in groups of five, we get a taste of what feels like the promised land: a rosé in Rose Bay and cracking open a cold one with the boys.
