FAVOURITE WEEKEND SPOT TO:
Perk up … Centennial Park early in the morning, running a couple laps with my kids joining me on their bikes.
Relax … On my couch with music playing, the windows open, drifting in and out of sleep until my son Louie dive bombs on me.
Dine … Bar H on Foster Street, Surry Hills. This cosy haunt of mine is next door to our studio, but that’s not why it’s good. Hamish’s food is fantastic and the atmosphere is warm and addictive.
Indulge … Bells of Killcare – I have spent one weekend there with my partner recently and it was great. Great food and great accommodation.
Shop … G Star and Harris Farms.
Catch-up … Bills on Queen Street, Woollahra.
Be inspired … Virtually any day in Sydney when it is sunny is inspiring. It fills me with loads of energy and everything looks and feels better. We spend a lot of time taking my son Lucas to his soccer games. He plays for the AC Milan Academy and is brilliant. He inspires me with his team spirit, focus and skills. This has been amplified this weekend as indoor soccer has just started.
