Well today is Australia day it is a public holiday here today. I was spose to work today went in for 3 hours & got to come home early. Since it is a public holiday today I will get paid for the day if I am at work or not. I just get extra for the time I was in there. :D How are you (other aussies) spending your Australia day public holiday today? If you are not in Australian do you have a national holiday? if so what is it called & how do you celebrate it?

We are having a family day at home today for Australia Day. It is nice to have us all here together during the week. We bought a BBQ yesterday (again another long story and maybe new discussion) and are having a BBQ on the back deck this evening...very Australian...
