We will miss you Josey!!!

We had a lovely day in Josey's Saturday class today. An amazing lunch and afternoon tea was provided by our wonderful ladies to wish Josey well on her Mediterranean cruise and European holiday. A huge thank you to Roz who prepared an amazing array of yummy treats. We were all spoilt with vol au vents, mini quiches, gourmet pies and croissants. If that wasn't enough....then there were the sweet treats. Profiteroles, peppermint slice, caramel slice, licorice allsort slice, mud cake, strawberries and cream.....need I go on? Needless to say .... we had another fun day at Bear Essence and wish Josey the "best time ever" as she sets off on her exciting adventure. We will miss you Josey!!!

We needed more room!!!!!!

There has been so much going on in Tooradin over the past few weeks. We have only been here 6 months and already we need more space. Thanks to my wonderful hubby Tony, it was like watching one of those renovation shows as he knocked down walls and rebuilt new ones, created a storeroom, fixed up the kitchen, installed cupboards and hooks, a new paint job ..... and all in less than a week!
We are now enjoying the wonderful new space in our gorgeous little classroom nook.
Come and enjoy it with us.....?
