Australia Day

I love my country
We are the lucky country
And I am proud to be Australian
And, well, proud to be a Territorian
Today is a lot of thing
Different things to different people
Some feel the need to wave our flag....alot
Some go to the Big Day Out or sit around listening to the hottest 100
Some love the day off to watch the cricket or the tennis
Some have a beer and a barbie with a mate
Some hang out at the beach and walk around in thongs
And some morn a life lost, a history lost, a generation lost
Whatever you do today, enjoy you loved ones and celebrate our wonderful country. And also remember, just for a moment, what the history of today really is...

Happy Australia Day xox

Well said Bianca.
Happy Australia day to you. Ours is getting wrapped up now with the twins making their lunches for school tommorrow (just need to contain the excitement) and the sounds of hoons racing up the wet access road behind our house.
