I said the other day I felt like a kid waiting for Christmas, and then the presents started arriving – a beautiful wrap to match my dress, from the designer Argyro Gavalas; jewellery by Trent Nathan from Fashion Brands, and some lovely, thoughtful things from friends and family. I feel extremely spoiled.

And now it’s The Eve for the Australian Premier… We arrived at Sea World this afternoon, checked into the beautiful resort…and after walking down to the harbour for about the best fish and chips we’ve ever had, came back to the lobby for a quiet drink – and a few minutes later watched a big free standing cut-out poster of Nim’s Island being set up! What a lovely way to end the day.


  1. Cheryl Simpson How exciting to see your story come alive on the big screen. I hope it's everything you imagined. By the way, your and Jodie looked beautiful together.

    See you soon.

    Safe journey
