Happy Australia Day
to my fellow Aussies
HI Everyone.. It's been one of those weeks. Dosed up on antibiotics for a dental issue and an internet that just won't play play nicely with others.. So I have been tardy in visits and lacking in posts. But .. today is Australia Day.. Living on Botany Bay the birthplace of our nation, demands that I honour the occasion. But what? Another cockatoo or two? A banksia tree? How about a wombat?
Better still a shot of the Future of Australia.. A second generation Australian who just happens to be my 'great nephew' [with respect to the author we will refrain from using the term 'great' from this point in]. A cheeky little terror who is happy to sit around in his singlet and eat whatever is put in front of him. Hmm.. seems like a typical Aussie to me .. hahaha.. But seriously folks.. I think he makes a good ambassador. We are a relatively young country of mixed heritage that doesn't stand on ceremony or worry too much if we get a bit of egg on our face. [or whipped cream in this case]. We tend to be casual in our dress and manner and naive enough to embrace our mistakes and laugh them off as a learning curve.. A good way to be and I should remember that next time I'm in a pickle.
So Have A Fabulous Australia Day
And a Fabulous Week to The Rest of The World
Internet permitting.. I'll pop round for a visit soon
