    In this episode....
    Today we decided to lose the regular format and have an open dialogue around how we are feeling as the cases of Corona Virus rise in Australian (particularly Melbourne, our home town). At the time of recording we weren't sure whether Melbourne would be shut down again, and we were feeling a little down and out.
    We hope that if you are in Melbourne and feeling a little somber that things aren't returning to normal like we thought it would that we feel you and want you to know you are not alone.
    We hope this episodes helps xx

    Please note - we experienced sound issues (crackling) during the recording. We apologise for the quality being compromised in certain areas of the podcast, although you can still hear us very clearly. We are two Mums running this podcast with no Admin or Professional support. We are getting our content out to you as best we can!
