That’s it Sydneysiders, lockerup. Well, if we’re getting technical, we’ve just all been ordered to stay at home. Which, yeh, kinda sucks. It’s alright but, we Aussies always know how to look on the bright side of a tough situation. Whether that be the opportunity to do that puzzle you’ve been meaning to, finish that book, binge that new Kate Winslet TV show.. whatever it is, now’s your chance. Enjoy.
Anyway, with that in mind. We searched long and hard to find you a range of good news stories that’ll have you feeling good this Friday arvo. Have a squiz and tell us what you think.
