๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿค”Sitting back and remembering ... ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜„

Fiona from Henderson

This last year and a half has been a real eye opener and an even bigger test of my patience.
So many things were unable to be done, so many family and friends haven't been seen face to face since ... hell I don't even remember.
All I can say is thank goodness for WhatsApp, Face Time and Zoom calls.
We normally go on holiday every 2 years after saving our backsides off and going without so much, but we haven't been able to for 3 years or so now.
So I was skimming through my passport/s, remembering the good ol' days (Ahh ... Croatia , I miss you so much).
This got me to thinking, "What did I do in 2020?"
Then it hit me ... this is what I did for so much of 2020 ... (pic attached) and 2021 seems to be pretty much the same ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

"We work with local high quality ingredients to combine good taste in food with contemporary culinary techniques,โ€ says Chef Finn.

Here are some photos of the dishes our Diploma students prepared and served.

TAME Rabbit - (family member tame) FREE

Julie from Glen Eden

Our neighbourhood white rabbit was killed the other day (thinking - by a dog) and left behind a smaller, younger companion. After watching it nudging the bigger rabbit to wake it and then laying beside it, on the road, we picked it up and took it home.

To our surprise, it's extremely tame, friendly and HEAPS of fun.

We cant keep it because our dog wants to hunt it.

We're hoping for a loving home with adults/children willing to spend time with it. It's playful, clean and not a fussy eater. It likes weeds, bread and vegetables.

Btw, we have wood fence panels and nails, if you need.
