With the sun beaming down and the warmer days inviting everyone out of their houses after our rather prolonged hibernation – also known as lockdown – let’s make up for lost time by socialising outside and away from our digital devices.
Peruse the selection of summer lovin’ ideas in our 20-page Fun in the Sun feature for some inspiration this holiday period. Read how you can utilise your downtime by revamping your home sanctuary with unique finds from Indi Tribe and Minty Greenhouse to bring outdoor styling inside. Or finally bite the bullet and talk to home builders Graham Jones Design. Likewise, if the silly season drained you a little, treat yourself to some TLC by purchasing a new summer outfit from Yo-Ko Original Boutique or a Reiki treatment from Aroma Haven. If a loved one requires help at home, there’s a solution with Henrietta’s Help at Home. Book your next decadent meal at Donato, and follow it up with a wander through the Mornington Art Show, which opens on Friday, January 22, and runs until Tuesday, January 26. And what’s summer without some activities to keep the little ones busy at Boneo Discovery Park.
Finally, let’s maintain everything that we’ve worked so hard for and continue to follow the COVID-19 restrictions by keeping our distance, sanitising our hands and wearing masks when required. So enjoy your well-deserved break, support small, love local and look after each other over the summer holiday period. Happy New Year from everyone at Mornington Peninsula Magazine.
