Christmas & New Year

sunny 40 °C

Christmas Eve went to a friend house for a roast dinner, was really lovely evening. They have a couple of young kids, so the house was very excitable for christmas which was great to see.

Christmas was around the 20 degree mark, which was nice...not too hot and not too cold :) perfect. Went to the beach in the evening and drove along the beach road and found another little beach that do not normally go to which was in a little bay, was very cute!!

Boxing day I was unwell, although not winter here still had a Christmas bug to try and ruin everyones fun!!

Went to the SkyDeck and had a beautiful meal on southbank overlooking the river which was amazing. I love the skydeck, which is a very high building and you go to the 88 floor and look out over the views which just take my breathe away.

Went to the Hanging Rock which is around 1/2 to an hour north of Melbourne. Is $10 to park and then you walk to the Hanging rock and continue to the Summit if you wish. The views from here were again amazing, they were more countryside whereas skydeck more built up areas of Melbourne, so it is nice to see the difference.

For New Year Eve took the dogs to the beach at Chelsea and then went straight to a outside get together at my friend Emma house which was cool to sit outside at midnight and watch fireworks (and try and calm the dogs down!!) as it was warm enough to do so.

Overall a cool but weird christmas and new year! Love going to the beach with the dogs & being able to do that when in England normally are all wrapped up ready to freeze is a crazy experience. I still keep putting jeans and jumper on automatically when get up then realising need less clothing on me as too hot, especially in Mildura where I am doing the farm work.

Today going to be another hot day though...40 degrees! so glad it is not always this hot though, too hot to do anything really!
