Home for Christmas

January 8, 2017 at 1:02 pm (Australia)

I loved being home for Christmas.  Clean air, the beach, amazing friends and family… the trip had it all.  It was fantastic to catch up with so many people and I promise to catch the others when I am home in July.

Some Highlights of the Trip:

1.  Spending Christmas in Hobart with my uncle, his partner Paula and Paula’s son Daniel

I loved being away for a few days and being able to relax and enjoy Christmas without feeling like I needed to see somebody.  Hobart is still one of my favourite Australian cities and Paula was an AMAZING hostess.

2.  New Years with my girls and catching up with old friends

I spent News Years in Gippsland with no mobile coverage but lots of old friends.  I really img_3317enjoyed having time to chat with them and rekindle old friendships.  In particular I had a really good chance to get to know Kate’s fiancee Chris.  I then got to start 2017 with my first ever Parkrun thanks to Chris and Bec who were also staying at the farm.

3.  Running along the beach

Need I say more?  Clean air and motivation.  You don’t realise you miss something until it’s gone… that’s me and the beach!

She is just the most adorable little angel with a contagious smile that just melts my heart.  I feel very lucky that I was able to celebrate her first birthday and get to be a part of her life, even from a far.  She’ll probably be walking and talking by the time I get home next!


Thank you to everyone who made this trip so amazing.  See you all in July.  xoxo
