Happy Australia Day

A cup of tea, scones, jam and cream were on the menu for afternoon tea with mum and dad for Australia Day... we were dry and out of the pouring rain, that was important! Not very Australian I know, however to make up for it...there were a group of young guys down in the reserve just in shorts, no shirts, playing football as the rain teamed down, the more it rained the more they laughed.

Not too many barbeques happening up here on the northern NSW coasta with widespread flooding and more rain to come.

I am deeply grateful my parents migrated out from England in the1960's to come to this beautiful country. Our family came out on the ten pound pom scheme which gave assistance to British families to migrate and start new lives in Australia. My parents were charged ten pounds for the fare and us four children under 12 travelled free. For my parents it was an amazing adventure to undertake, to leave their families and friends and all that they knew. I am impressed.

They were given employment and housing and promised a more relaxed lifestyle and a better climate... all of which was true... although Tasmania is climatically like many parts of England, cold and wet... so they felt quite at home. I remember arriving as an eight year old and we stayed in the Wellington Hotel, Hobart, which was like many of the pubs I knew as a child and wondered where all the kangaroos were. That was my total expectation!

I love Australia ....from Tasmania where we landed to my teenage years in Canberra, starting a family in Dorrigo and now Coffs Harbour - diverse landscapes yet rich with abundance, possibilities and great memories.

Wherever you are in this great land... Happy Australia Day
