I woke up to the exciting news that See! has been nominated for Best Children’s Album in this year’s ARIA Awards. It’s nominated alongside a stalwart from my own childhood, Play School, and the coloured-clothed men who have won many a child’s heart in recent years, The Wiggles. I remember one time when I was five, I got into an elevator with my mum and Benita was in there. I almost wet myself. Today feels a little bit like that day.

In other exciting news, Seeker Lover Keeper has been nominated for Best Adult Alternative album, a category with an unfortunate title, but we are in good company alongside Grinderman, The Panics, Boy & Bear and Little Red. Given the disparity between these nominations I’m not sure what to wear today, but I think overalls are a good middle ground.
