Our lives are very hectic in the course of the week and Saturday appears to be taken up by sensible issues on the farm, so Sunday is just for us as a household. It is our time to be collectively. We'd go to a phenomenal little restaurant and have a cheese souffle and a few beautiful wine and sit in entrance of the the hearth. If it is a phenomenal day we are able to get some train and get exterior, spend time within the vegetable backyard collectively and take the canine for a stroll. 

We attempt to make no bookings on a Sunday. 

I really like Sundays with no plans. It is bliss if we are able to get it, however issues at all times appear to materialise – and also you're at all times on watch with kids [daughter Estella, 14, and son Hunter, 4].

I'm going to [a Shiva yoga retreat] annually and I do lots of yoga and stretching. I at all times have the most effective intentions of doing extra once I get dwelling – I attempt! I at all times assume my life is going to get much less loopy, however my life is at all times busy with one other dedication, one other assembly. My new type of train is to go hit a number of tennis balls with my husband [entrepreneur Bradley Cocks]. 

I typically do lots of my cellphone calls once I'm strolling the canine. Now we have a Swedish golden retriever and a beagle-spaniel-labrador cross. Some mornings after we have dropped off the youngsters in school, my husband and I'll go and have a espresso collectively after which we're straight again into work.

I used to be requested to visitor edit Australian Vogue Residing. I'm doing the Italian situation. I've been travelling round Italy, and the household lived there for a yr [in Rome in 2016.

It has been wonderful however I did not calculate [the magazine] into my month. It is an infinite quantity of labor. I survive by writing lists.

I've at all times been somebody who likes to be busy, however life is far more balanced today. We drink actually good wine and we eat very effectively – nothing is in extra. We attempt to discover the stability there. I drink a number of water, no ice, no lemon. I drink lots of glowing water, as a result of it feels far more thrilling. I particularly love the Antipodes water.

I do not eat pink meat. I prepare dinner principally Mediterranean meals, Italian meals. I make a number of risottos, I make my very own inventory, and delightful salads, easy pasta dishes with chilli, oil, garlic and good parmesan cheese. I just throw a number of issues in a pot and style it – that is what makes it enjoyable. Cooking for the household on the finish of the day is kind of enjoyable for me. However I am not a baker, I am not a cake maker. 

I do not get the Sunday evening blues, what are they? It does not make any distinction to me if it is Sunday or Monday.
