Australia Day 2012

Wow, Australia Day again! This day comes around so quickly, I think I'm getting old. As usual we spent it with our friends, Julie & Phillip, at their traditional BBQ. There same group of people attend & we all bring a dish to share. All the kids get on well, the older kids just "hang out" chatting & listening to music, while the younger ones play on the Playstation. It's a lovely day with true friends, the kind of friends that sustain & nurture you, that are good for the soul & that are unbearably honest when you need a kick in the bum.

After the BBQ we went to see the fireworks around Lake Wendouree, but this time we saw them from the decking of the Ballarat Yacht Club, where we met some of our other delightful friends for dinner. Of course, I got dreadfully burnt at the BBQ, so I shivered my way into the night sky. The fireworks were amazing, the organisers did a great job, & dinner was delish.

So, happy Australia Day to all, I hope your year is filled with love, happiness & success in what you do. We are lucky to live where we do - let us all appreciate what we really have: freedom, opportunity & the potential to achieve really awesome things xx
