    The wife and kids and me are off to park around lunch time to meet up with my mum, dad, brothers, sister and all their children and children’s children (28 in total) for a BBQ then a family cricket match. It has become a bit of a family tradition and it’s great to catch up with everyone.

    There is a massive fireworks display at sunset on the river that runs past the city (Perth) for about 30 minutes, it’s simulcast on an FM station. Nearly half a million people get down there with radios to watch and listen to the show.

    Shane, if anything I’ve noticed people seem to be a lot more patriotic these days with flags on cars and houses and of course all the kids have Aussie flag temporary tattoos on their faces and arms.
