Every year there is an Australia Day tradition amongst our group of friends. We have a BBQ, chill out in the heat, drink beer and listen to the Triple J Hottest One Hundred. For those of you who don't know Australia Day celebrates the arrival of the First British Fleet in Sydney Cove in 1788, or in laymen's terms, when Australia was started. For those of you who also don't know, the Hottest 100 is a countdown of the top 100 songs from the past year. Its a good day to say the least.
This year the tradition continued at our place. We had about 20 great friends come round. There was food, beer and even Kate and Matt's beautiful baby girl Luella. It was the first time a lot of us had seen there baby so she was a popular person for most of the day. I think it mad a lot of us realise where our lives are going to be heading in the next few years and there was even talk of the next few Oz day parties having to have kiddies areas and activities. A bit daunting but exciting non the less.
The Hottest 100 started at 11:30AM and kicked on until about 8:30PM so it was a long day. It was weird this year because Australia Day fell on a Wednesday which meant everyone had to work the next day. Even with an early night I really didn't want to drag my self out of bed the next day. Work to say the least, was hell.
