Happy Australia Day

summer days

To my Aussie family and blogging mates, fire up the barbie, crack open a slab, turn up the Triple J top 100 and have a bonza day!

No matter how far or wide I roam, I still call Australia home…

I wish!

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. I rather think he looks like a lot of Aussies will feel like on Tuesday – “oh, no, leave me alone and let me sleep”

    1. Have a glass of Sav Blanc on my behalf M-R. It’s a bit too chilly for the cold white stuff here! (Or should I say it IS cold enough for the white stuff here). And besides I am having a dry January. Roll on next Sunday!!

        1. Of course I knew you’d say that, but then the Kiwis told me that you Aussies are always stealing their creations 😉
          “The nationality of its creator has been a source of argument between the two nations for many years, but formal research indicates New Zealand as the source.” Wikipedia

  1. Cool morning here today in Melbourne – roast lamb in the oven today I think! Not that cold really – hopefully going to reach 21c. Just a little respite from the 30+s we’ve had recently

    1. That sounds about the temperature I would like. Good for the tennis 🙂
      And what’s all this with the lamb? Is that a traditional dish on this holiday? I imagined you all to be throwing the prawns and the snags on the barbie 😛

      1. Prawns on the barbie?! I think that was an advertiser’s dream.
        I don’t know anyone who puts them on the barbie – snags and lamb chops yes, hamburgers yes, fish even but prawns no.
        Lamb was grown here right from the word go – lots of fortunes made off the sheep’s back in the last century.
