Christmas time 'down under' means summer.... beach, barbeque's, sunscreen, day light savings, air conditioning, swimmers etc etc.... it might sound strange to those of you on the other side of the world surrounded by white, cold snow but this is the only Christmas I have ever known (one year I do wish for a white Christmas - just one).
With summer officially here the sun is up bright and early every day and by midday it is hot, hot, hot and without the luxury of a swimming pool in our backyard for my little girl (and me) to cool off I thought of the next best thing.... a big bucket of water for her to splash around in.
It was extremely cute watching her have fun in and out of the bucket so I took some happy snaps and emailed them to my parents later that night..... an hour or so later I had an email reply from my mum titled 'Like mother like daughter' with a few photos of me as a little girl doing the very same thing!!
I had to share the laugh and the similarities too - you'd never guess we are related really??? NOT!
