An Australian Christmas

At the risk of being predictable, here is a Christmas post. I know, I know, but I can't help myself. I simply LOVE Christmas time.

Here in Australia we spend our Christmases outside, having a barbie (barbecue), drinking beer/summery cocktails and playing cricket, eating pavlova and swimming. It's a pretty excellent time.

On Boxing Day, there's always massive sales but there's also the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. It's pretty excellent to watch as they sail on the harbour (to Tasmania).

(I've never actually been to this, but dying to go!) 

When I look at all the lovely things I'll be able to see for Christmas, I just get so excited. It's such a fun time. 
I'm curious though, for those who are used to a white Christmas - how would it be for you to spend it swimming and having a barbie? Would it be weird for you, or would it be a fun experience?
I think I'd like to experience a white Christmas at least once :) 

How do you spend your Christmas/Hanukkah/Ramadan? 

I'd love to hear!

Vintage cars, beaches and fairy woods

Yep, that was my weekend. Vintage car show, walks by the beach and cycling in the national park. Does it get much better than this?!

I hope your weekend was magical!

(Delicious savory loaf recipe to come later this week!)

Rett Syndrome

I don't have any kids. I don't know anyone with Rett Syndrome. It hasn't affected my life and up until recently, I didn't even know it existed.

But that doesn't mean I can't tell people about it now.

Elizabeth Halford is a photographer I admire. She is honest, quirky and her daughter has Rett Syndrome.

Her website, Gracie for Rett opened my eyes to this development disorder that affects 1 in 12,000 girls.

I don't presume to know what she goes through, or what other families go through, or even what those brave little girls who have this disorder go through. But if this blog post gets seen by someone, who emails it to someone else, who then tweets it... well, I guess it's a small thing in the scheme of things.

Elizabeth has got some great information on her website, so please, have a read and pass it along!

Tweet it, email it, pin it - anything to get the word out!
