Yes, today is Australia Day at Frills in the Hills. It's a public holiday where we celebrate being Australian, usually eat off a barbeque, eat too much, have a few celebratory drinks and enjoy the fireworks. It falls on 26th January to mark the day in 1788 the first settlers (british that is) arrived at Botany Bay, here in Sydney.
So, what are you up to today? Even if you aren't in Australia or Australian - raise your glasses to our wonderful nation! I will be when I host our annual barbeque with friends! Yes, there will be prawns (shrimps) on the 'barbie'.
Now onto the carnival!
