    A nice welcome back for school students

    10 days ago

    Granville East Public School put on a big welcome back for students after the school holidays. It put a smile on our faces because with the isolation in the school holidays, it was nice to see this as we drove by.

    Well done Granville East Public School!

    P.S. - Loved the gold streamers!

    Rock art

    22 days ago

    It’s nice to see that people are ditching technology to paint and hide rocks for others to seek.

    These rocks were hidden in a local Pemulwuy park for residents to seek and find.

    Do what you can... for the greater good!

    by lynnederella, about 1 month ago

    Another local example of something that made me smile today...

    Whilst out and about in Auburn I walked past the famous 'Student Biryani' restaurant and noticed this small poster offering a free meal for those in need. It's times like this that we all need to band together and offer whatever we can to support our community. Major shout-out to this small business who has taken the initiative to support our vulnerable communities with their basic needs!

    Seeing a video of a terrier running away with its owners false teeth in its mouth! Too Funny. I hope you enjoy the image to!

    We're all in this together...

    by lynnederella, about 1 month ago

    Driving to the local shop for my weekly essential shopping... I drove past a childcare centre which had changed the letters in it's external signboard to say 'We're all in this together'

    Not only did it make me smile... it made me reflect on the fact that one single thing has managed to unite the WHOLE WIDE WORLD. Amazing!

    Social Distancing - Still a Happy Birthday

    about 2 months ago

    Driving back from the shops this week, I heard in the distance sounds of car horns with random friendly blasts sounding. As I turned the corner a homemade sign sat inside the driveway of a house - in large letters it read:

    "Honk to say Happy 7th Birthday Harrison"

    What a different kind of birthday many people will have this year, having to social distance - and what a clever way to connect community.

    Made me smile :)
