Obviously we went with the original plan and celebrated in a fairly quiet way
They really were so happy with the thought of it being Australia Day.
Corbyn brought me some gum nuts which he had picked off the the Eucalyptus tree in the yard. He was so pleased to offer me this gift from nature as good as flowers in his opinion, as indeed they were!!
I really need to work out some better planning to have no sugar and wheat in our celebration foods.
The ones above are from left to right around: cup cake pavlova, iced vovo, lamington, and tim tams. Very traditional Australian food.
Naturally we have gherkin and cheese with it making it into a ploughman's lunch or some golden syrup and Vegemite again two traditional Australian foods.
Indeed we had planned on playing some board games together as well as some cricket if Stephen could have his way and of course a swim.
As Stephen and I went to choose some new glasses we ran out of time for all but the swim and the fact we still have sick people in our home, Mama included.
So as we come to the end of our celebrations I wish you all a very happy and blessed Australia Day......
Blessings to you and your homes,
