Happy new year! I hope you had a lovely
festive season. I certainly
did, and am! I'm still not fully 'wound up' yet, as I enjoy the summer
with my husband who is taking a couple of months off!
been starting most days with a walk to Whale Beach. This time of year
it's even hot enough for me to venture into the water and take
advantage of the fabulous ocean rock pools we have here in Sydney
