We headed west to watch Happy Jac (Luke's baby sister), Alice ( my bridesmaid in Oct) and her sister Caroline all race IM Western Australia. All of them were terrific on a super scorcher of a day. Happy killed it with a PB, Caroline was amazing with a IM Debut of 10.30 something and Alice came second in her age group and got one of those very sort after kona slots :)
A quick trip around the south saw us catch up with everyone and 5 days after we got there we were back home again.
This year it has been great to be home so early and back into training with Belinda and Justin. We have the best community here. Everything we could want. The weather has been great. Well there has been a couple of rainy moments but hey I wont complain.
Finally the other huge news has been Christmas. My best girl Sum Sum and her man Aaron arrived early Christmas day. Sum is 7.5 months pregnant and her baby JJ is enjoying her first trip down under. I am going to be her "GM" (God Mother) so I have been loving hanging with them. Breakfast was at our house and Luke's family and Happy's boyfriend Guy came up before we packed the car with everything including the dining table and chairs and headed to Belinda and Justin's house for Lunch/dinner.
What a fantastic afternoon as we had Kristian and Char and her folks also. Belinda's Pop was there and he is an old cracker of a bloke.... so funny. Belinda's mum and dad got through all the yummy wine I brought with me. There was even a late drop in by Simon Thompson who is up for a training week.
With all the food and drink it has been straight back into it. i think we will be riding down to Byron Bay tomorrow. That should melt some calories.
Will post pics tomorrow :)
Till the new year take care and stay tuned
