Jan 26 Australia Day~ I will raise my glass to you all...wherever ye be! I will wish you all well. I will wish you untold joy.

Oz haiku the day before Jan 26

corrugated iron
diversity of souled folk
snow desert beaches

with love to all

To all Aussies

Wherever you are, and whatever you do on January 26th, have a great day.

If you can somehow slip on a pair of boardshorts & a pair of thongs (.... er, the footwear, not the underwear!), and have a barbie, go fer it!!

Thanks guys!

I had a nice lunch with another Aussie living here in Paris and we raised our glasses in a toast.

My husband asked if he could do the great Aussie tradition of taking a "sickie" to celebrate with us... Rolling Eyes

It was certainly different spending Australia Day freezing instead of boiling. Laughing

Anyway, off to dive into bed with the electric blanket on HIGH... it is registering -3degrees outside our house.... and inside doesn't feel much better as we have been away for a week and so no heating has been on... Shocked It has taken me hours to get the temp up to 10 degrees!!!!! I am still not used to being this cold. Laughing

Can't whinge too much though as you are all suffering from the heat and bushfires. Let's all raise a glass to the firies who are spending their public holiday protecting our "golden soil.. girt by sea".
