throw another shrimp on the barbie

Sorry for being quiet recently, but there hasn’t been much to write about and I think I’ve been a bit distracted by what’s been happening in the UK right now. Imagine the whole world going on like that. There are enough baddies out there to make it happen, so what stops them? OK, I’m not panicing, I’m just preparing myself for what’s about to come eventually.

On a lighter note, I was at an Australian barbie yesterday. There was no shrimps (have you seen this ad with Paul Hogan?), but we had steaks and sausages, salads and of course pavlova for dessert. That version of pavlova was a bit different. It was small round pieces of a plain meringue and you put some fruit and whipped cream by yourself. So the essence of pavlowa or what pavlova is, is this: meringue + fruit + whipped cream.

I forgot to mention in my previous post that I have been counted. Every 5 years on 9th August, there is a Census Night in Australia and every household has to complete a Census for the Australian Bureau and Statistics, either online or paper exactly on that day. I had to complete my column, even though I’m just a visitor staying here for less than one year.

And the last thing to “report” is that it finally came to me that I’m under a bit different sky and G. showed me today The Southern Cross, when it got dark. It looks pretty much like a kite. The sky wasn’t clear enough to admire it more, because it was cloudy today and rained, but I hope I’ll have more chances to watch the stars on our 5-day trip which starts this Saturday. I’m not taking my laptop, so, unless something happens, we’ll ‘see’ you next week.
