Today is a public holiday. I love how it splits our first week back at school nicely in half!
Today we celebrate our nation. Australia is a wonderful place to live. It is a safe country, a very relaxed one at that. :) We are surrounded by beauty and a great climate for camping and swimming and beaching and outdoor activities in general. Though a little hot in summer!
Today we are home; Stuart is taking care of the land - 6 hours of mowing :( - and I am working with the kids indoors, sorting toys and cleaning.
But. In exactly one hour we are stopping everything, and sitting on our verandah to enjoy "Happy Hour" - a very Aussie time of day - with cold drinks and some nibblies. I can't wait. :D
Happy Australia Day to all my Aussie friends! And to my overseas readers - come visit our beautiful, laid back land someday will you? We'd love to see you!
