Happy Austwailia Day & Dad Gets Citizenship!


G'day Pals, Happy Austwailia Day! I'm celebwating by wearing my True Blue Aussie Digger Hat! Fow you Seppos (if you don't know wha a Seppo is check my rhyming slang dictionary) out thewe, Austwailia Day marks the beginning of English colonization of Austwailia, so it's like Columbus Day, 4th of July, & Thanksgiving all rolled into one!

Austwailia Day is a good day to shawe some important news. My dad got his Austwailian Citizenship last year. Mum got hewes 2 yeaws ago: the Prime Minister rushed it thwough fow hew because hew work is so impowtant.

Aftewards mum made my dad weaw this ridiculous hat, just like she made me weaw. She said it was to show dad was fair dinkum, but I think mum is unfair dinkum!

Aftewards my pawents went wif the Figgs to a pub to celebwate being fare dinkum Aussies. I'm spending Austwailia day weekend wif the Figgs to give dad a chance to west and pway pooter games nonstop.

Hope you all had a great day. Master got his citizenship too, but never went to sign for it, so it was never finalised :( Ah well.

Hey, Asta Girl!

Congratulations & goob smoochies to your Aussie dad! I didn't know he wasn't a citizen until now. What a huge deal!

By the way, you sport that hat so much better than he does, but that's no surprise.

Goober love & Australia Day smooches,
