The coffee and food at M&M is very good and the staff delightful! They are my mates.

This urban tale of friendship is perfect entertainment for children aged 5 and above, this joyful show will spark conversations about belonging and acceptance that will resonate with children and adults alike long after you leave the theatre.

My friends at the Fremantle LANCE HOLT School are holding an OPEN DAY this Saturday September 17 from 10-12 am.
The independent community school offers an integrated program for children from 3-year-old Kindi to Year Six and is highly regarded by Freo parents who love the relaxed atmosphere at the school.
The school is at 10 Henry Street in the historic West End of town and was established in 1970 by Lance Holt.
Come on Fremantle kids and mums, take DAD to a special place this Sunday and visit the Growers Green Farmers Market at Lefroy Road.
It is the monthly BIG MARKET with lots of stalls to buy DAD a present and lots of food stalls to buy him yummie breakfast and coffee. And you don’t have to clean up afterward yourselves. ; >)
There is live music, and DAD could have a face painting or cuddle up with sheep at Damian’s Farm. The Growers Green is a lot of fun, so make is a very special day for DAD!
Always remember that Freo is all about your special DAD:
This long bubble tube at the Fremantle Winter Festival at the Esplanade is very popular with children who run and roll around inside it.
It looks like a whole lot of fun, so can we have a senior night in them as well? Only kidding!
If you haven’t been there, go and check it out. There is ice skating and a huge slide, toboggan, food and drinks and even hot chestnuts and ‘real’ snow.
School holidays are starting in WA so check out the latest show by Spare Parts Puppet Theatre in Fremantle. It is one big SPLAT! the kids and parents will no doubt enjoy.
It runs from July 2-16. Check out the Spare Parts website for details and bookings!
Snow is falling in Fremantle at the Winter Festival at the Esplanade and kids and grown ups love it. The ice rink is a lot of fun and there is also a slide on real ice.
Hot chocolate, mulled wine, slow cooked beef and pork and the National Hotel bar open will make for a fund day and night out.
The WA Day event at the Fremantle Esplanade was a little underwhelming as it was mainly for children, but it was still nice to see how multicultural our Australian society is.
How great to know that we live in such a peaceful country in relative harmony with all cultures, religions and skin colours.
There are still too many racists to my liking, and those who mistakingly believe they defend our nation’s values by being intolerant to other cultures.
It is good to reflect sometimes on how privileged we are living in such a stunning part of the world with so many fascinating people in our community.
