Mikkayla’s favourite eateries offering take away and delivery options in lockdown four
Déjà vu: French for ‘already seen’. The feeling that one has lived through the present situation before.
My heart breaks for all the hospitality and entertainment industry workers who are once again the hardest hit by yet another lockdown across Victoria. I also feel very heavily for the parents forced back into the teacher’s chair as they attempt to navigate the ol’ home schooling regime again!
One of the most important things we can all do, if able, is support your local restaurants and cafes if they switch over to operating on a takeaway basis.
