Australia Day 09

January 26th. Always a magical day. Spent with friends, and usually spanning the entire day with a bbq, swimming, drinking and firework watching thrown in.

This year was no exception. We had lots of fun, I got sunburnt (my eyes, dammit!), we all got relatively drunk (although there were no nudey swims in the river wearing only Australian flag aprons with bare bums for all the poor families to see, hey Pete and Ed ;), swam a ton, bbq'ed a few too many times and had a great day!

It was an eclectic bunch; Aussies, Americans, British, Swedish, and a whole lot more. And I loved every second of it.

Interesting tidbits: I drank 2/3 of a bottle of red, more than a keg of beer and some Amarula; Alex did enough somersaults to awe and astound us all, Pete did not repeat last year's nudie swim in the river, kicking ball drunk is a great idea, sunburn is not!

That "brute strength" photo is my favourite! :) I also like the photo of all of you and the one of the fireworks.

No, I haven't read "Memoirs of a Geisha" yet. But it's on my long long list of things I want to read.. :)

I love summer too, JackieGloves, I had a minor panic attack today as I realised summer (well, 35 degree celcius plus days anyway) will be done in a month! No!!

Haha, thanks for the tip Erika. Might have to peruse the go jane website :)

Also, thanks Carrie :D

Hey Petra, thanks heaps. The shorts are literally a pair of vintage Levis that I cut up
