Hoppy Australia Day

Squish Rabbit and I would like to wish all our downunder friends a very happy Australia Day. A day for barbecues in the sun. For picnics by the river. For frisbee and beers in the park. Or if you’re one Byron Bay friend of ours, apple dunking and three legged races.

Sound good? Well, all these were plans we had until the skies decided to bless Queensland once again with crazy weather. So instead we’ll be enjoying the rain from the safety of our home, while thinking of all those in the flood affected areas and hoping they stay safe.

We will, however, still celebrate our national day: instead with boardgames, well worn DVDs, an indoor barbie (sausages on the stove top – woo!) and still plenty of beer … it just wouldn’t be Australia Day without it.

Have a good one Australia!

    Sounds perfect! It’s actually cleared a little here – we even had a swim and fitted in a game of tennis :) Wish you were closer so we could all spend it together x
