I rarely have the fortune of being able to visit my parents (pictured!) as the town I grew up in is very isolated, a long flight from Sydney to Perth and then a 750km drive south east to the coast is always a mission costing precious time and money. That being said - I'll never miss a Christmas if I can help it and this year was no exception. It was a real treasure to be in the loving presence of my family and have home cooked meals, daily walks on the beach with the family dog. Thanks Mum for snapping these pics, the wild and woolly conditions were not idea for decent hair shots but we managed these two. Not really an outfit I would usually bother to feature - mainly because I'm wearing my cosy First Base shorts that are slightly too big but being that I've only just returned from Sweden, they are the only summer appropriate 'bottoms' I have. Must get another shot of this Life with Bird leather jacket - so you can see what a great shape it is.
