Australia Day....


We celebrated Australia Day yesterday with a beautiful warm sunny day. Luckily it wasn't as hot as the rest of the week is forecasted to be. For one small moment I was almost pleased to be going back to work so as to be in the airconditioning !! just for one small moment mind and then I thought about it - nope not ready, I kind of like this being on holidays!!! Oh well SH and I back to work today and the kids back to school next Monday. Apart from a special dinner we didn't do anything much to celebrate. Our dinner though was lovely, marinated lamb cutlets on the bbq followed by a pavlova. YUM!! Have been working on 'the' quilt, running out of time to get it finished ......will post about it tonight but without further ado I better announce the winner of my little Australia Day giveaway...............................April from New York.
April please contact me so I can get a parcel in the mail. Just wish I could of given something to everyone!

Happy Australia Day! Have a Lamington on me! (We had those on one of my favorite days in Australia - the day that we toured The Great Ocean Road.)

The pav looks fabulous!

I spent Australia day receiving updates at 20 minute intervals on the cricket score...let's just say my South African colleagues 'tried' to be gracious about their victory...

I'm glad your day went so well! That meal sounds scrumptious! I need to try some Pavlova. I know Carol makes them. I'm sure I could dig up a recipe on the net.
