Aussie Aussie Aussie! Eh eh eh!
Last night my delightful Big-P became an Australian Citizen at the Hawthorn Town Hall. Luckily Canada is generous enough to allow you to have dual citizenship, so now he drink beer, shout at the footy and eat meat pies with the rest of us and then say “eh” at the end of it all. I am also sure his Barbeque technique is bound to improve – he was pretty good before but now that he is True Blue and Dinky Di my mouth is watering at the mere thought! Unfortunately I couldn’t go along to the ceremony but he took some snaps to show me when he got home. You can check them out here at flickr. Congrats Bonza-P!
Ah, Hawthorn Town Hall! The last time I was there was when I picked up my degree 3 years ago – and I’m still trying to get my Aussie residency!
Big congratulations to Big-P!
Yahoo eh!?! I am cheering but also sad that so many Canadians don’t stay in Canada. Congrats – now send us a few cute Aussie guys in return! hahaha
Oh wow -good stuff! My Canadian boy has his Aussie citizenship interview next week. Can I ask how long Big-P had to wait after his interview for his ceremony to take place? Thanks, Clare
Phil’s interview was about a month and a half ago I think… not long really!
Actually – he’s just told me that it was the last ceremony for the year in this area so that might be the same for all areas.
That means we can’t have him deported now, doesn’t it?
Congratulations Claire and Big-P!!!! Coincedentally, my son Jacob’s certificate of Australian Citizenship arrived just under a week ago from the embassy in Berlin. I was actually a bit surprised by how proud I felt when I opened the envelope and saw that funny old creat with the kangaroo and emu!! Gefeliciteerd!! Hoooraay!!
weee…i’m just happy tt Chanel Cole is in top 5
My husband’s parents are Canadians and though he doesn’t say ‘eh’, he does say ‘filem’ instead of ‘film’ and other odd Canadian pronunciations. We just smile and nod…
Congrats to Big-P on this momentous ocassion!
Congrats to Big-P! Reminds me of how excited I was when I got my permanent visa here in Japan….
How fantastic! Congratulations to Big P and you!!
I wish that we had dual citizenship, I would totally pick to be an Aussie! 🙂
Congrats to Big-P!
aww. CONGRATS BIG-P!!!!
Congrats to Big-P!!
We’re one giant leap behind you guys, we’re still waiting for the permenant residency (generic letter) to arrive at our doorstep. Its been 6 months, im betting on waiting another 5.
Nothing beats a canadian (eh!)!!
Congrats to you both. Do you also have Canadian citizinship?
COOL, we just became Aussies too! (all the best ones do ya know…) BTW, I love your site to bits.
