Don’t Bother to Chuck Another Prawn On The Barbie6 May 2009
Friends in the Northern Hemisphere assume that I spend the entire summer going to barbecues (I blame Paul Hogan!).
But I’ve been invited to 4 in the 6 years I’ve been in Sydney. And I wouldn’t need all my fingers to calculate how many times I’ve been invited to friends for lunch or dinner.
Now the OECD has announced that Australians spend the least amount of their leisure time (3%) entertaining friends at home of any of the 30 democracies they surveyed.
Phew! That’s a relief. David and I just thought we were really unpopular.
