The happiness that shopping brings. We finally found a German butcher, and though it's all the way out in Hoppers Crossing (about 30 minutes drive), we did not hesitate for one second. Went this morning, and that's what we came back with, plus some Quark, Schwarzwälder Schinken, Mettwurst...OK, the Wernesgrüner and Haribo we picked up at Aldi, and the Jameson at Dan Murphy's, our three favourite shops in one day!
Enough advertising, now on to celebrations: today's Australia Day, and there is no more fitting way to celebrate than with a few stubbies (beers for the rest of the world) and nice little barbie (barbecue....) - though German-style, I have to admit, but then there's no sausages like German sausages, well, at least the Aussies cannot quite keep up. Anyways, as you can see, we're slowly picking up the lingo.
We might head into town to catch the fireworks, but then again, we might be too lazy, a bit over 3o° today, just about bearable. By the way, not all the sausages are for us, some are for Sam and Scott, our Welsh friends from up north (-Melbourne), photos will follow soon, as we're all heading to the Big Day Out on Monday, to see Björk, Rage Against The Machine, UNKLE, Tucker, Arcade Fire, Dizzee Rascal, and quite a few others.
So let's start eating, or maybe a drink first, after all it's already after two!!!
