PLEASE EVERY1 It is very importent that we follow the instructions of ABC’s health reporter Dr Norman Swan when it comes to social distencing.
– We will be updating protocol in adherence with the government’s standards. Very big chance I will have the kids next week so will only be free after 5pm when their mother gets home. Plese stay safe ever1 and god bless.”

MORE TO COME.
