Australia Day

Today is one of the best days of the year. Australia Day! This is like the American 4th of July.
I love this day. And I love living in Australia.
First we are off to see my father-in-law win a very special award here.
Then we are spending the day bbq-ing traditional Aussie style with friends, swimming, wearing thongs (flip flops) and will be using phrases like:
Beauty mate.
Where’s the booze?
I need another snag from the barbie.
I love your boardies. I might pop my cozzie on and have a dip.
Fair dinkum??
I even have the Australian Flag in the shape of a love heart as my wallpaper on my mobile phone – have had it for years! Yes, we are the very typical Aussie family and I couldn’t wish for anything else!
Happy Australia Day xx
PS. Thanks for all your comments yesterday on  my little man. We spent some time discussing things and he apologised and went to be without a fuss. Gotta love those kids! They know how to push your buttons, but I would go to the end of the world for them.
