Ok, I know I’m a month late on this post, but December and January have been a tad busy. I want to show you what I’ve been up to. Let’s start with Christmas. If you follow me on Facebook you may know that I’ve just returned from a month in Western Australia. And what a month it was! Three weddings, a winery, Christmas, five family shoots, one portrait and my Dad’s new kitchen. Phew. Needless to say I’m now buried in editing. But what a joy.
Let’s start with these chaps. I spent Christmas and New Year in the south west of WA with my brother’s family. The town they live in has a population of 300 and is a five hour drive from Perth. I arrived at my brother’s house on Christmas eve and was greeted by my extreeeeeeeeeeeeeemely excited sister in law shouting “IT’S CHRISTMAS!”. Almost as soon as I arrived I was handed a glass of bubbles and told that Santa was doing a lolly run with the local CFA and I should head along.
Every year on christmas eve these chaps drive around town dressed as Santa, yes there were two, throwing chocolates and lollies to the local kids and the families in town on holidays. It seems that being incredibly generous with their time an talent extends beyond fighting fires – what fab people.
When I returned home we cooked up our Christmas feast ready for the next day. Nom, nom, nom. Marron and lots of it. Christmas day was spent eating until we were going to burst, drinking bubbles until we were slurring, a million different rounds of quizzes and the obligatory street cricket with all of the neighbours.
A bloody good day all round. Don’t be alarmed by the police car – my brother is a policeman and was on call!
