Mr Cardinal's Australia Day offering -
sums up late summer Australian days pretty well, I think.
I sang with my choir at a Citizenship Ceremony,
taking my patriotic fan to cope with the humidity.
It was inspirational, and heart-warming,
to see the happiness of the new citizens as they took the Oath of Alliegance.
We ended with a rousing chorus of Advance Australia Fair .... as you do!
We had a barbeque street party with all the neighbours -
about 50 people turned up!
It is such a great way to catch up with each other every New Year.
The rain has started again -
which is wonderful for the garden!
