Ask Huffle

Welcome to the very first edition of Ask Huffle. I had some very good questions over the weekend and I will be answering them all over the next few days. This question from my best friend Zim of the Army of Four was not the first question I was asked, but it relates to today's date so I thought I better answer this one first.

Zim asked me: Australia Day is coming up. What are your plans to celebrate? Is it traditional to eat ham?

Well Zim, today is Australia Day and I am very sad to report a distinct lack of ham in the house. Mum even went shopping yesterday and everything. I plan to celebrate the rest of the day by having my mid morning nap, my late morning nap, my after-lunch nap, my afternoon nap, my pre-bedtime nap and then going to bed. I might squeeze in a play session with my mouses as well, but I can't promise that one.

I have heard that the tradition for Australia Day is to have a barbecue and drink some beer. But we don't have a barbecue, and only dad drinks beer in my house so we probably won't do either of those. The city puts on a fireworks show but I don't care for those either. You could say Australia Day is a lot like any other day in my life!
