And another thing...

It really annoys me that we have to put our sunnies on to eat lunch outside...

I like to make eye contact!!

And what is it with the waiting staff giving you vouchers for 50 % off the lunch you are having at the time!!!

And giving children free ice creams even though they didn't have a kids meal. It's well out of order.

The thing I find hardest about Australia is the huge range of fabulous locally grown wines... Much prefer being ripped off by pretentious, overpriced french piss anyday... and the variety? well I only need to have the choice of Blue Nunn or Black Tower... not all these .... girl just can't make up her mind about what to drink here..
