like that. Having said that, we might get itchy feet and want to escape during the two weeks over Christmas and New Year when the Mount goes crazy, you never know! Have you factored any TV watching into your downtime? Have you got any series queued up? I’m someone who watches a lot of sport, even if I do it for a job! Recently I’ve really got into watching the Ashes series, and loving it. I def- initely wouldn’t call myself a cricket tragic, but I’ve found it so exciting over the last few weeks. Not having to cover it myself has meant that I can really sit back and enjoy it, it’s a totally different way of watching. It’s the same with the Australian Open, I love watch- ing tennis, but it’s such a different experience when you’re there in the thick of it, grinding away. I’m looking forward to just taking it in, which will be really cool. With your holidays plans in mind, what are you wearing over the next few weeks? This is probably TMI, but when I packed my bag to head down here I didn’t even pack underwear or a bra because I really do live in a bikini in summertime! My out of office notifi- cation is on and I’m in my bikini, with a sunhat, no makeup... If someone sees me out they won’t recognise me, seriously. It’s my time to relax and just be, I’m such a summer child that I literally will hardly leave the beach.

A popular Sky Sport presenter whose work has taken her to such prestigious events as the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Kirstie Stanway has had a big year. Feeling more than a little exhausted after returning from Japan via MIQ and then going almost straight into Auckland’s lengthy lock- down, when we chat in late December, she’s ready for a summer of down time, beach days and yes, watching more than a little sport. Where are you right now Kirstie? I’m with my partner at my parents place in Mount Maunganui. I won’t be back in my radio job until January 18th or back to Sky Sports until the rugby kicks off in February, so I’m going to have a LOT of downtime which is amazing! How will you be spending that deliciously lengthy break? I think we’ll spend it right here. I’m so tired that I just want to lie on the beach and do nothing as opposed to traveling around or anything
