I love the Sunday newspaper magazines. They are full of froth and bubble and are so easy to read while I enjoy my muesli and coffee.
One of my favourite sections is the My ideal Sunday, from sunrise to sunset section where beautiful celebrities remind us that they live in a different universe than the rest of us.
Today was Rebecca Judd’s turn.
And it got me thinking what my typical Sunday involves and how different it would be to hers.
Rebecca Judd’s ideal Sunday involves:
8am: Head to Balmain’s in Brighton (Melbourne) with my husband Chris, son Oscar (2) and newborn daughter Billie, before coming home for a play.
10am: I lock myself away to work on the week’s ideas, materials and curated design for Melbourne property developer R. Corp.
12pm: Time to stock up on fresh produce at Prahran Market (if it’s footy season, you’ll find us at the ‘G watching my husband play!).
3pm: My kids wake from their nap, then we head to the St Kilda Sea Baths for a splash. The hot spa is the best!
6pm: We go to the early session at Fazio’s or La Svolta in Hampton Street for yummy pizza done the Italian way.
My typical Sunday (today) in comparison:
7am: Get out of bed to give my son his morning carrot (don’t ask) and my daughter her oats.
7.15am: Go back to bed
8am: Head to the fridge in Warranwood, with my husband, six-year-old son and seven-year-old daughter. Go to 9am Body Combat class while husband looks after the kids.
9am to 10am: Try to avoid looking in the wall to wall mirror during my Body Combat class so I am not a witness to how unfit I have let myself become.
10.15am: Time to stock up on fresh produce at Coles. Look like I’ve been dragged through a bush backwards and then drenched with a hose (if it’s footy season, you’ll find me at the exact same place).
10.35am: Arrive home. Husband heads off for a swim. I think we say hello and goodbye to each other.
11.15am: After shower, take kids for a quick walk in the sunshine.
12:30pm: Head into the kitchen for some yummy leftover pizza lunch done the Dominos’ way
3pm: My kids come in to the house after eating an ice cream outside, then we head to the bathroom for a splash, but not before they wipe their faces on their clothes. The hot water on the facewasher is the best!
4pm: I make cookies for the kids’ play lunches. Then I make some minestrone soup for later in the week.
6pm: We go the early session at the dining table for a meal the kids won’t eat. So they get some of the minestrone soup.
6.30pm to 7.45pm: We all watch The Block.
7.45pm: Struggle to get the kids to bed.
See? Rebecca Judd and me: like two peas in a pod!
