Today I went to a Tupperware party. What happened to the old tin with biscuits in it or the water bag??

 

Have you heard of Tupperware?? These kids I met have, but I am not sure if they got the uses right?

I went by bus to Adelaide and met Cousin Helen at the Central Market. The fish was very fresh but Barramundi and Snapper, not Cod.

 

Flowers are not my thing but Christine liked them at the market.

 

Kangaroo steak is very popular as it is chemical free and a sustainable meat. It is low in fat so good for people and tastes great. This shop only sells kangaroo.

 

The fruit and veg and so fresh and colourful. We had sweet corn for tea.

 

Anna and Stephanie are back at school after the Christmas holidays. I like the Aboriginal Art in their house.

 

This is my cousin Emma (Branch 4) sister to Partick and Cameron. She works at a Japanese Restaurant.

 

Look what we got to eat. When I was a boy we cooked our fish, this was raw but tasted great.

 

Captain James on Australia Day

It was Australia Day on 26th Jan. They have only been settled since 1788 by white man, so they are very young by UK standards.

 

I spent the morning at the beach having bacon, sausages, eggs and pancakes for breakfast. It was prepared by the local Country Fire Service. They are all volunteers and are very busy during the summer putting out grass fires and attending accidents.

 

This is Bruiser the CFS mascot.

 

This is Christina, she came to Australia from Liverpool. She is a real Australian now and all dressed up for the occasion

 

Traditional food for Australia Day is Pavlova served with berries and cream and Lamingtons.

 

I like lamingtons.

 

It is summer here and the peaches and tomatoes are soooooo juicy and tasty. These came from Christine’s garden. The tomato weighs 450g.

 

I had to be really careful when I climbed the peach tree. This photo was taken on Branch 4.
