HAPPY BIRTHDAY COEN!


To be born in Australia on the 26th January is very special, as it is Australia Day. On a Sunday afternoon 17 years ago today during a terrifying thunderstorm, my son Coen was born. Coen is an Australian aboriginal name meaning thunder. And yes he has a fair bit of thunder in him, but in a nice way. Happy Birthday Coen! And Happy Australia Day!

Hi Mary, I loved her accent reading what has become such an iconic Australian poem!
