As the weather starts to get cooler it reminds me of winter in Europe so I am considering attending one of the many Christmas parties in July. I love any excuse to have pudding with custard by a cozy fireplace. Here are some ideas to tempt you:

RSPCA Wacol Animal Care Campus – Sunday 17th July for Christmas in July Markets, including kids entertainment, music and meeting Santa with his Elves.
