On Australia Day my Dad was officially named Mosman citizen of the year for all the work he's done in the local community over the years. Disappointingly he didn't get a sash or a crown but he will get to have a special cocktail party. People have taken to calling my Mum Lady Sandra, which they think is terribly funny and original, but they should know she only answers to 'your highness' or 'your majesty'. Apparently the ceremony went well with Johnno and Danno hosting the whole thing (does anyone else remember them from the 80's?), lots of new Australian citizens getting their trees and sausages and lamingtons being served.
Here's the article that appeared in the Mosman Daily. For anyone that is interested or if this is tricky to read here's the address. He's on page 4 (yes I think it was definitely front page news too).
