So rather than my normal Christmas of opening gifts with family, Christmas turkey and cozying up by the fire this year Christmas was spent in 35 degree sunshine on the beach, no turkey and defiantly no cozy fire (unless you count the BBQ)
Waking up to the sun shining was definitely different and putting on shorts and t-shirts was strange but once you got used to the idea it became a beautiful day (it didn’t take me long to get used to the idea believe me!)
After going to church to celebrate the birthday of Jesus. I, my sister and her friends went to North Curl Curl beach. It is a gorgeous sandy beach that stretches 1.2km. The water was the perfect temperature to cool off from the scorching sun.
We met up with some family friends and after a swim and a glass of champagne 🥂 we headed back for a very chilled afternoon.
We had a beautiful sea food and BBQ dinner, completely different to the turkey roast dinner I’m used too. Eating outside was also different no cozying up to the fire this year. We spent the day eating, playing outdoor games and enjoying everyone’s company.
Overall it was a great Christmas, very different to what I am used to but with good food and good company we can celebrate anywhere!!
