Guess what's new in Tooradin???

Our very own ICE-CREAM PARLOUR :) just opened up around the corner from Bear Essence... This is going to be very dangerous... I can see a few of those New Year resolutions being tossed out the window!!!

I went down there today with my little grandson to check it out and YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY. It was so hard deciding on which flavour to have!

So next time you're up our way, drop in and have an ice-cream... Might be just what the doctor ordered!!!
