Happy Australia Day! What could be more Australian than lamb on Australia Day? You could add a breakfast of Vegemite on toast. Chug back a few VB’s on the day, even with breakfast if that’s your thing.
My mum and Mac adore lamb, Josh is quite fond of it too, even Ms Lily has a bit of a love affair going with lamb. I have a secret, I don’t like lamb, actually like is too soft a word, I hate lamb. I do like lambs in their living form, they are so cute as they frolic around the paddock. Butcher one, cook it up and my love goes out the window. I’m not too fond of Vegemite either, and detest beer.
Some would consider that I am very un-Australian for hating the big three; lamb, Vegemite and beer. But what really makes you a dinky-di Aussie anyway?

My father’s side came to Australia a little later to escape the horrors of World War 2, settle and make a new life. Unless you are native Australian, you were either born here or came here to better your life and that of your family. Actually those we consider native Australians also came here, and we have to assume their agenda was also to better their lives. Read more →
