Well bugger me, hasn't the year disappeared? It's almost that time again to gather the family around for some Christmas tucker and to give them something special in the stocking.
But what to get? Here’s our handy dandy guide to all gifts Aussie and good this Christmas.
It's a funny old thing, to see someone take a brand new hat out of its box, one that's cost them a fair hand of dosh, a piece of craftsmanship that takes 19 stages and 60 sets of hands to create, to see a bloke take that beautiful hat from its exquisite boxing, and throw it on the ground and stomp on it.
I love a trip to Buchan caves, not least of all because of all the saucy jokes you can make on the way - oh, Buchan oath can you make a good Buchan pun! We came up from Lakes Entrance, a pretty little fishing town with some good camping especially there behind Eastern Beach, lots of mini golf, and a ripper ice creamery. Great place to go in summer for a proper Aussie layabout camp.
One of the main questions we're always asked here at Everything Australian is lace-up or slip-on… what is best? Well, it depends on what your foot is like, what you're using them for, and how lazy you are. Me, I like a slip-on best because when I'm coming in and out from the workshop, the misses makes me take me boots off, and an elastic-sided number is easily the best for that.
