gf - Okay, we'll kick things off. What's the first thing that comes to mind when
you think of that balmy, steamy, sweltering time of year we call summer?
Rebecca - Hot, sun, water and beach !
Tammin - Definitely sunbaking and being happy. When you've got beautiful weather
you get a happy vibe.
Bec - You feel a lot more on top of things coz you're out there exercising and
looking after yourself.
Tam - I'm going overseas for a bit. I've booked a trip to an island with my boyfriend
and friends ... for relaxing and reading. Just being a typical teenager.
Bec - I haven't got much planned because I'm not sure what commitments I'll have
with my music. I'm really good friends with Ada Nicodemou and Danny Raco, so Beau and I will probably end up hanging around
with them quite a bit. But I love the beach.
Tam - What's your earliest memory of summer?
Bec - My mum told me that when she'd take me to the beach she knew I wouldn't
run away, coz she'd put me on the towel and I hated the sand so much I wouldn't move ! But my earliest memory is going to
the Gold Coast I wanted to move there !
Tam - We always used to go away somewhere at the end of the year. We went to
Hawaii a couple of times. I learnt to surf there a couple of years ago but they were low waves - not the big waves like in
Australia. I had a long, thin board so you start quite far back and you just roll in right at the end. It's beautiful you
go really slowly and it's so nice.
Bec - I learnt to surf about two years ago and I stood up first go so I aws very
proud of myself ! Last summer I didn't get out there that much so this summer I really want to get out on top of it. But I'm
pretty much an outdoors person.
Tam - Me too. I just like to be on the go.
Bec - You've got more energy in summer. In winter, you tend to eat to keep warm
as a sort of comfort thing, whereas in summer I find it's too hot to eat.
Tam - I drink a lot more water in the summer. And the array of food like lots
more fruit ... it's beautiful !
Bec - I live off fruit in summer and I love sluurrrrpies. Cola or passionfruit,
yes please ! I get the jumbo ones coz they just don't last long with me. That's the best awy to cool down when it gets so
Tam - Or dive into a nice pool. And it's so hot at night you've got to have a
very strong fan on to keep cool. But then you wake up with the sniffles, coz the cold air's been on you so you can't win !
