We always enjoy our time spent with the lovely Sally. She makes us feel so special with her kindness and generosity. Thank you Sally ❤️
For some time now, most Tuesdays we have had groups of carers from Community Based Support coming here to cooking classes. The focus is always on easy to prepare dishes, the current theme "Like Grandma Used to Make." The photo - a little snack for when they arrive being prepared early this morning - savoury muffins that included fresh herbs and vegetables from the garden. Towards the end of the class the menu included the old fashioned favourite of jelly cakes. In the spirit of "Here's some we made earlier", I made a batch just to be filled with whipped cream at the end. (This also allows the jelly coating to set in time). The same batter later made blackberry muffins (blackberries freshly foraged yesterday by Robert). Many main course and dessert dishes were prepared in between. It's always such a pleasure to have these groups come along, and to share with them really easy user-friendly recipes, made with a touch of abandon, not a lot of precision (by me), but always, thankfully, successful. Love sharing the food together at the end, with loads of leftovers for them to take home to those they care for. Other topics coming up - Slow Cooking, Easy Cheese Making and Lunch Box Fillers, having already done Making and Baking Yeast Good and Bottling and Preserving. Lovely people who have now become our friends, look forward to enjoying their company again very soon. ... See more

Today we celebrated Christmas with our good friends, the students of St Therese's. These students have been helping to teach some of our clients how to use technology. Many of our clients now have Skype and are in touch with their friends and family that live overseas and some now have Facebook accounts and are reconnecting with old friends. They can now 'surf the net', do their banking and shopping online and more! Today they brought along some fun hats, glasses and head bands which helped us all get in the mood for a party! So much fun was had by everyone. ... See more

Today we celebrated International Volunteer Day with a morning tea for our wonderful volunteer Sherryl. 🥰 Our one and only Darren Fox presented Sherryl with some flowers before we shared a morning tea to thank Sherryl for her kindness and dedication to her work. 🌹🌹 Sherryl volunteers her time and energy with our Social group at Risdon House every Wednesday and Friday. She started volunteering with CBS this year and we simply do not know how we would cope without her. THANK YOU Sherryl for all that you are and all that you do! 🤩 ... See more
We would like to wish our dear friend Sally Wise of Sally Wise Cooking School a huge congratulations on her recent "2019 Senior Australian of the Year - Tasmania" award. Sally has taught many of the Carers who are registered with the CBS Carer Support Service to prepare delicious, home cooked treats on a budget and we have been told by our Carers this has had a positive impact in many of their homes.
