I live in sunny Brisbane with my little fambam - hubby and 3 kiddos - who are 8, 6 and 3. In a previous life I used to dress up, catch the train and work in a high rise in the city! Now post kids, I run my little biz Kablooie Store from home, while I clock up miles driving to and from school, kindy, swimming, piano, cricket, footy....and the list goes on! I love being able to be there with my kids and the flexibility of working from home. At Kablooie I make limited edition statement clothing - quirky, fun and colourful things for big and little people.
2. What are your favourite Christmas Traditions?
I love putting up the Christmas tree and decorations with the kids in December! We also love getting into the kitchen and making rocky road and other yummy stuff...as well as lots of mess! I feel like as the kids are getting older, we are still only just starting to find our Christmas traditions, but as long as it involves family, friends and food I'm good! We don't put a lot of emphasis on Santa but the kids always get a sack of fun little gifts at the end of their bed, and the gifts under the tree are from Mum and Dad.
3. Make us drool over your favourite Christmas food!
Oooh at Christmas one of my fave meals is breakfast! I always make huge pancakes, with bacon and maple syrup, coffee, and a big platter of mangoes and other yummy summer fruits. Breakfasts is definitely the most important Christmas meal for me!
4. Are you the "I'm done with Christmas Shopping with Christmas Tree all up by mid November" or "Nah. Let's put up the tree on Dec 20th and hit the stores on Dec 23rd" type?
Hmmmm I'm somewhere in the middle. Usually we go away during late november, so I shop for Christmas present then when I can go away without the kids! But we don't usually start Christmas decorating mid December . I never leave it til the last minute because I hate driving to the shopping centre in the rabid Christmas crowds! Another reason I love online and market shopping....
5. What is the most important thing about Christmas for you?
Hmmm spending time with family is definitely a huge one.. It's often the only time we all get together in one place, even if it's not on Christmas Day!
Choose between the following:
Christmas song: Jingle bells or I’ll be home for Christmas?
Hmmm to listen to definitely I'll be home for Christmas!
Christmas pudding - with heaps of custard!
ooooh Home Alone for sure! We used to quote that movie aaaaaall the time!
