Happy Australia Day
Today we celebrate being Australian!! I hope everyone in this beautiful country has a wonderful day today and can share it peacefully with family and friends. Take the time to remember who we are. Many have suffered tragic losses [and are still suffering] in the last few weeks, but there has been an outpouring of wonderful kindness and friendship that always seems to surface in times of adversity. My wish is for all of the people involved in this cruel act of nature to keep in touch with those who came to help, and build long lasting friendships.
I offer congratulations to those who have received awards, but also to those who make a difference in some way to the lives of others around them, no matter how small it may seem.
For us here it is just another day as there is a mountain of damage to repair, and so the work goes on, ie broken contour banks, fences knocked down/washed away, and so on. Thankfully, all this can be repaired, others have not been so fortunate.
Whatever your 'poison', a prawn, a sausage, a lamb cutlet, a cold beer, or a glass of Australian wine, do enjoy it and take care.
