Celebrating Australia Day

26 Jan

Do you celebrate Australia Day?  We do.  Traditionally it is a day to hang out with friends, overindulge and listen to the Triple J Hottest 100.  Today was no exception.  Our fun day of celebration, the people involved and the food eaten was a true reflection of our community and Australia in general.  We spent the day relaxing in the park with friends old and new from many countries of the world including Hong Kong, England, America and Indonesia eating some delicious food.  Naturally we had snags on the barbeque but they were accompanied by chicken satay, Thai coconut salad, pesto and bocconcini pasta, coleslaw and Somali rice.  For many, the food was washed down with beers and wines from all over the world.  For those a little more energetic there was cricket to be played, kites to be flown, trees to be climbed and skates to be skated but for those of us a little more sedentary there was plenty of great music to sit around and listen to.

I hope everyone else had a fantastic Australia Day celebrating the diversity of our amazing country.

    Sounds wonderful, we stayed home, I had to do some work and then I had a 2 hr nanna nap in the afternoon. Not very exciting but much needed!
