Happy Australia Day

Australians have always been known to have a fighting spirit, to have a 'not let the buggers get us down' attitude, to stand side-by-side in times of adversity.

The start of 2011 has surely shown this to still be true, and it is when I see strangers helping strangers, or standing up for the rights of people against the insurance companies, or donating what they can to help others, or putting themselves at risk to save others - that when I am proud to say I am Australian. It is in these times that we show our true colours.

My favourite poem is I Love A Sunburnt County - I wrote this post in 2009 and I link it again just in case you missed it the first time.

Happy Australia Day - we certainly are privileged to call Australia home.


  1. And a happy Australia Day to you!!!! I hope things get back to normal for those in the flood areas very very soon.

  2. I couldn't agree more - this country of ours and its people are magnificent. A belated Happy Australia Day to you!
