It's (my first) AUSTRALIA DAY !!!!

As an Australian, I've been told that on the 26th January, we all come together as a nation and celebrate all things Australian. This often includes an outdoor BBQ with shrimp (we call em' prawns) being "thrown"(or with lamb), cold beer, get togethers, a special coconut dusted sponge cake called a Lamington, a visit to the beach wearing Australian Flag design togs (bathers), and an official day off work. All good things!!

Some of our furry Australian icons pictured in front of our flag.

Here I am with my Australia Day bandana with a little Koala that has hitched on for the ride. OOOhhh I'd like to give him a little chew..... but mum said it wouldn't be very Australian!

On Monday, Scarlet and Zoe wanted to "get in on the action" for Australia Day, so they donned their bandanas too:

Scarlet: I'm sporting a BIG GRIN for the Day!

                                                       ZOE: Here I am being all Australian!

Mum calls us the "Terrible Two" and wishes to tell you it was hard to take this shot because we were focussed on doin' some bitey face instead!

As a special treat for my readers - here is a lovely photo (we can indulge in a nice one!) taken during our recent flood disaster. This shows a "local" Aussie evacuating some wild kangaroos from their flooded home - and bringing them to dry land. They gladly "hitched a ride". This photo was taken in Theodore, Queensland, a town located on the Dawson River.

Saving my furry friends.



  1. We saw that photo on the news! It's nice to know there are people out there who help animals.

    We've had our Australia Day picture taken, had a long walk and are now inside to avoil the expected 42 temp.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  2. Thanks for sharing Australia Day with us.

  3. I'm glad you had a wonderful Australia day! Also glad that those roos got saved.

    Nubbin wiggles,
