A New Aussie!

Last evening Mr R. and I went to the Australian Citizenship ceremony in our local district to witness our Son-in-law John become an Australian citizen. John hails originally from the UK. It was very well organised and there were lots of new Aussies taking the pledge.
Here is yours truly with my Grandson and one of my oldest friends Karen, who just happens to be married to our SIL's uncle....confused??/ LOL!
John being congratulated by our Mayor Pam Parker.
Next a family photo with that very precious certificate.
After several rousing rounds of Aussie! Aussie! Aussie! Oi,oi oi! and the singing of our National Anthem to close the night we got to partake of a cuppa and and a huge Anzac bikkie. Lachie was first in line!
So all that remains to be said is......John...

I thought I would leave you with a photo of a favourite Aussie spot of mine. This place was so beautiful and peaceful....Simpson's Gap N.T.
Namaste and blessings,
Michelle xxx

  1. My late father would never become a citizen of Australia, as a Scot he would never swear alegence(!) to the Queen, and I notice in your photo a photo of the Queen. He loved all that Australia offered marrying my 5th generation mother & very proud of his Aussie kids, just wish he was around to meet his grandchildren. A citizenship ceremony I went to years ago offered, Vegimite sandwiches & meat pies for supper!!! Welcome to Aussie John.

  7. Those cupcakes look amazing. Congratulations to John... it's a very moving ceremony. I had a 14 mth old baby on my hip as I became an Aussie and he managed to knock one of my gum nut earrings out of my ear! Hope you all enjoyed the day.
