This week was, of course, Christmas! And I flew half way across the world from Sydney to Mauritius (via Perth) to spend the week with my family, whom I hadn’t seen for over 7 months! We have spent a blissful 7 days catching up, playing in the pool, lying on the beach, tanning (and burning), eating, drinking and generally being pretty merry. It’s been fantastic to see the fam, and I have loved every minute of my heavenly time on this paradise island – while beach life is great, it’s been fantastic just to get to hang out with my sisters and be a family. And even better? While they head home to wintry England in a few days time, I fly back to the sunshine in Oz, ready for an amazing summer of topping up my (pretty excellent) tan!
