Jan 25, 2010
Tomorrow - Tuesday 26th of January - here in Oz we celebrate the landing of the First Fleet onto the shores of Australia.
For some it means backyard barbies, cricket, and a day off work, while to others it means a trip to the beach to celebrate in the sun, eat ice cream and swim in the surf.
But for me - this year is the 21st anniversary of the birth of my first born child. I have a lot to be proud about my boy. He is thoughtful, considerate and always there for his friends or for us. He is not adverse to coming to see a movie with me, or going out to dinner or even just been seen with his ol' mum. He is a wonderful son and I plan to celebrate with him tomorrow by taking him out to lunch.
To all you Aussies and Aussies at heart - Happy Australia day, 2010. Have vegemite on toast for brekkie, share a Tim Tam or two, have a barbie. Just enjoy the day.
If you are Australian, what does Australia day mean to you? Do you celebrate it, acknowledge it or just think of it as another day?
