'straya day

We had a few people over on Australia Day (well, it was the 25th here. We are 17 hours behind Melbourne). We had been thinking about doing it for a while, but weren't sure how many people would fit in our little apartment. In the end, we had a small (but good) amount of people come and it worked out well. We had sausages in bread, chicken wings and some salads. And beer, there was of course, beer. I also made Anzacs. We showed them last year's AFL grand final (recorded on DVD by Jon's parents), and listened to the Hottest 100 for a while too. It was a good night, and we were glad we decided to do it. It was nice to have people over, to share dinner and have a few drinks – it's something we enjoyed doing back in Melbourne. Hopefully we'll do it again soon, I know Jon is keen to knock up some pizzas for them!

PS. I don't know if anyone is reading this blog, but we were interested to hear what people thought of the Hottest 100? There were a few good songs in there, but our favourites didn't seem to rate as high as we thought or hoped (and I was sure Phoenix be no.1)...

Here were my favourites from last year:
• Clare Bowditch - Start of war
• Doves - Kingdom of rust
• Florence & The Machine - Dog days are over
• La Roux - Quicksand
• Passion Pit - Sleepyhead
• Peter Bjorn & John - Lay it down
• Phoenix - Lisztomania
• Sarah Blasko - All I want
• Silversun Pickups - Panic switch
• White Rabbits - Percussion gun
