The Australia Day Edition.
If we where having Pavlova right now…. I would be wishing you a Happy Australia Day.
We went to an Australia Day Breakfast and Citizens Awards this morning, was fun just to hang out and spend sometime outside.
If we where having a BBQ right now… I would share some lunch with you, and then perhaps dinner which was roast lamb cooked on the BBQ.
If we where having a Chat right now… I would say i am so happy that the school holidays are almost over. In my opinion 7 weeks is way too long. I love my daughter don’t get me wrong, but there is only so much of a board teenager that i can handle.
If we where singing Advance Australia Fair together… I would share a poem i wrote a few years ago.
AUSTRALIA DAY 2011
We are one, we are many, through fire and flood, blistering heat, dirt and mud. We stand as one beneath our radiant southern cross,
We have experienced love and loss. Our flag we stand and salute, Be it flying the flag in another country Or on a rusty old ute.
Nothing can keep us down, No king no queen or crown. We are Australian to the core, Worship our sports football cricket and more.
Advance Australia fair, we stand together and give our share. We are girt by sea our fellow Australians and me.
We sing working class man As loud as we can. Drink a ton of bundy rum And still say hi to your mum for me. No matter where you come from.
We wrap our arms around you And bring you into the fold. From far away lands And distant shores.
We are Australian forever more. Our house may be crowded. Our chisels cold. raise your glass.
This Aussie day Around the BBQ with mates and say Happy Australia Day
