The Book Grocer in Melbourne. 10 awesome books for my PhD for under a hundred bucks. But why is there about 5 of them within a block of each other? And are there other Book Grocers in other states or is this a Melbourne thing?
They are great.

Not long ago they had all books for $7, or 3 for $20. Walked out with 9 books lol.

It all just sounds so fantastical.
Yesterday I started work at 9am and finished at 00.30 this morning. I was back working at 9am this morning, but should be able to finish at 5 and have my first day off in 10 days tomorrow.. but too tired to do anything except go out for lunch and drink.

It’s not all good.

Arranged a sausage sizzle at Bunnings to raise money for my son's year 6 leavers camp and graduation dinner. So much went wrong during the organization that I wondered whether it was worth the effort.

Had a great day with some pretty terrific people. It was especially nice to have so many laughs with my son who was very vocal and a natural salesman.

We raised over $1,200 so it was worth it 😀

I did one too yesterday for my sons year 6 ski trip. Didnt organise but was on for two hours doing the cash and orders. Was dreading it but was fun

Don't want to rain on anyone's parade but is fundraising at Bunnings for kids to go skiing a regular thing?
Pretty much anyone can hire out the BBQ area space. I know some schools do it for Duke of Edinburgh camps and stuff. My sister's year at school did one to fundraise for walking Kokoda.
