Well the time finally came around and I had the pleasure and good fortune to celebrate my new Australian Citizenship on Australia day in Brisbane.

The Local Rotary Club hosted the ceremony in the Auditorium beside the Planitarium at the base of Mt Cootha.

I was fortunate to have my Dad and Uncle Hugo attending to represent family.  I was also very touched indeed by the show of support from my friends.

Thank you to the UQ Dentistry crowd, Wat, Emily, Belinda & Mel.
Thank you to the UQ Payroll crowd, Gary and his wife Julie, Tony, Leah, Jules and her boyfriend Nick.

My dear friends Brett and David (Brett's dad) and Shane & Row (Shane celebrated his birthday on Australia day also)

Your presence made it all the more special and I thank you from bottom of my heart.

A big warm heartfelt thank you to my Irish families who, even though some would prefer me closer, still gave unconditional support to me staying in Australia.  I love you Mum, Andrew, Paul, Ciara, Margaret, Shannon & Casey...and all my relatives and friends who keep me going with the email and skype across the miles.  XOX

Well guys...your stuck with me now LOL

It was a BONZA RIPPER OF A DAY......STREWTH, I was STOKED to finally make it ;)

Thanks again,

Love from a very proud Irish Aussie Sheila XOX
