Today I have been listening to the Australian band ‘Husky’ on repeat and then, by some crazy coincidence, Wikipedia informed me that April 19th, 1770 Captain James Cooke first sighted the East Coast of Australia, my homeland AND April 19th, 1984 , my birth year, ‘Advance Australia Fair’ was announced as the national anthem.
I think you’ll agree there is nothing else to do but talk of Australia and listen to ‘Husky’.
So that is exactly what I am going to do.
I miss the sun.
I miss the food, hot chips with chicken salt, Jacaranda creamed rice, lamingtons, meat pies and Golden Gaytimes.
I miss the accent.
I miss making lots of freckles.
I miss burning my feet on the road cause I’ve decided to go to the corner shop barefoot. (Not going to lie, whenever any says barefoot I literally imagine a bears foot… chuckle.. don’t judge me.)
I miss the sea water in my hair.
I miss the sand.
I miss sausage sizzle.
I miss family and friends.
I miss Heartbreak High. Drazic = Dreamboat
Anyway, feel free to join me in my Husky listening!
P.S. Turns out that what I thought were trucks being loud next door is actually thunder, I love thunder, YES!
