i hope all you australian readers had a beautiful australia day yesterday.
i spent the day with friends, listening to the hottest 100, having snags on the barbie and lots of salad too, and eating far too many lamingtons and pavlova slices. the perfect day.
now for all you readers from other countries, here's some australia education so you can actually understand what i just wrote.
in australia, on australia day, a radio station called triple j hosts a show called the hottest 100 where they do a count down to find the best song of the previous year. most people listen to this show on australia day.
snags= sausages and barbie = barbecue. these are typical colloquialisms that everyone uses. on australia day everyone seems to have barbecues with family and friends.
and finally lamingtons and pavlova are our australian desserts. you can make them from scratch like we usually do, or supermarkets sell them too.
