My little bakery has been serving bread for one year, and to celebrate that I would like to introduce you to this almond and coconut cake! It's a luscious slice-like cake that would serve the whole family the entire weekend...(maybe)... It's gluten free and contains eggs, butter, sugar, coconut and almonds. Look; I put a coconut and some almonds in the picture in case you didn't know what they were. Oh, and; on top, a chocolate hazelnut ganache; that makes it over-the-top lush, but hey; we have something to celebrate! I sell them for $10. Ready when you need it on Saturday morning after 9, from the trusty bread cabinet at 56 Livingstone Street. ;) Sip

Last December I purchased an alternative to blu tack from Officeworks, "J. Burrows - adhesive tack"
All summer long it has been travelling down the walls and doors and no domestic cleaning product will remove it.
It is leaving a stubborn sticky mark on everything that it comes into contact with.
The company responsible for the product are owned by Officeworks and have recalled it and have offered to pay for repairs.
I am looking for 2 quotations to have the goo removed and the walls repainted.

We are getting some work done in the office by GBE Electrical.
A social enterprise
GBE is a not-for-profit social enterprise. This means it is an organisation run for a social purpose, in this case to provide employment for apprentices from backgrounds under-represented in the electrical trade.
Instead of depending on funds from charity or government, GBE earns most of its income by providing electrical contracting services. And because it is not-for-profit all earnings are reinvested in the business and the community. No dividend is paid to owners or shareholders.
And they’re local!
Don’t ya love social Enterprise?
