Australia Day……………..

australia Day

Australia day………………….

Hubby was very much after Lamb cutlets for our Ozzie day lunch and dashed off to the shops this morning to buy the supplies.

At the butcher’s he ordered 10 thin sausages and 8 Lamb cutlets and was totally blown away when the girl came back and said “that’ll be $37.00, Thanks”.

Well as he picked up his jaw from off the ground he politely told the girl that maybe she had made a mistake………….

No she hadn’t…………..

The Butcher came and tried to explain to hubby about  how expensive the  Lamb is these days, and how he has to ‘up’  his prices to try and make his money back, well needless to say, we didn’t get to  have lamb cutlets for lunch, but instead opted for the Woolworths “lamb lion chops”  instead at a much more reasonable price and it   brought back some childhood memories for me as that was always  a favourite  meal of mine so I was happy.

But back to the price of the lamb cutlets, I am so curious to see if later in the week when its NOT Australia Day would they be any cheaper and if not…………………….well we wont be eating them any time soon.

So for  lunch we had a very Aussie BBQ consisting of sausages and lamb lion  chops………………………….oh and chicken kebabs, which we don’t mind.

This afternoon i had a visit from my friend (http://chaoticjupiter.blogspot.com/) who is leaving here to start a new job in Sydney, she is a city girl so I’d imagine she will be quiet happy to be going home, closer to her family.

Firstly though she is off on a well earned trip to Hawaii (Mmmm i wonder if I could fit in her bags, but maybe not after all those sausages filled with fat,)………

Lucky girl,

To be going to Hawaii,

Mind you i think she will need to make the most of her R&R because once she gets home she will be straight into the new Job and I think she will be as ……………………….

Busy as a bee.. 

 

Remember to enjoy and make time for the things you love, and don’t work too hard….x

 

So my Australia Day afternoon was filled with friendship,

And through- out the day I managed to make a start on an up and coming birthday

present, and no Mom its not for you….

(Mmmmmm  but I must give that some thought, but i think i have a gift in mind)..
