EFFIE ZA­HOS

Money edi­tor Effie says: “Be­ing there for my daugh­ter at 9am on Fri­day De­cem­ber 14 to re­mind her that no mat­ter what ATAR she gets on this day, no num­ber should ever de­fine you. Ex­plor­ing the ‘Pearl of the An­daman’ one of Thai­land’s most iconic is­lands with my fam­ily and tak­ing cook­ing lessons with a lo­cal in their own home.”

ANN LOVEDAY

Money’s art di­rec­tor Ann says: “Sum­mer at Casa Loveday ... it’s the sea­son for en­ter­tain­ing, cook­ing new things and de­vour­ing sum­mer reads. The warm days will sail by with no en­gage­ments more im­por­tant than grab­bing a towel and strolling down to Clovelly beach for a high-tide dip. Mar­vel­lous.”

MARIA BEKIARIS

Maria, Money’s deputy edi­tor, says: “Day trips to ex­plore some of the fab­u­lous beaches up and down the NSW coast, vis­its to the lo­cal pools with the kids and their friends, watch­ing them en­joy their down­time af­ter a busy year at school. And just get­ting to en­joy qual­ity time with fam­ily and friends.”

BOB CHRIS­TENSEN

Bob, Money’s se­nior sub-edi­tor, says: “Both my kids have reached mile­stones: my daugh­ter has fin­ished high school and my son has fin­ished uni. Over sum­mer they’ll move onto the next stage in their lives. It’s ex­cit­ing – and scary – for all of us. The best bit: no more school lunches to worry about!”

SU­SAN HELY

Su­san, a se­nior writer at Money for more than 10 years, says: “I’ve rented a sim­ple cot­tage on a lit­tle-known bay north of Syd­ney with a re­serve in front where kan­ga­roo fam­i­lies laze around. That’s where the fam­ily will spend Christ­mas be­fore head­ing to the awe­some Wood­ford Folk Fes­ti­val for six days with 1200 events.”

SHARYN MCCOWEN

Sharyn is Money’s on­line con­tent pro­ducer. She says: “A cheeky, snub­nosed, stumpy-tailed blue puppy un­der the Christ­mas tree. She’s not a present or any­thing, she is just busy guard­ing her new col­lec­tion of shiny tennis balls (Christ­mas baubles) that she thinks we’ve been hid­ing from her till now.”
