    It isn't far from you either..... let us know what you think of it.

    I have shopped in their Jandakot store at times and whilst I found their prices good, I wasn't too impressed overall with the quality of fresh produce. Some was good, some wasn't. I guess if you are a big family and buying large quantities, Spudshed would be the way to go. I only shop for one so Spudshed is a bit overkill for me, but totally get why families shop there.

    I visited friends in Carramar yesterday and they needed to food shop so we ended up at Drovers on Waneroo Road. OH MY! The fruit and veg there was good value, as was the bakers, but then we went into the butcher section...... I was blown away at the quality, choice and price of meat....!!! I will be back with an eski next time I visit this end of town... so amazing. I bought a few odd things that I could use but the prices were amazing and I wish I lived closer to this place.
  4. Dairy products and water

    Lots of choice with both really. I drink tap water and the majority of the time it is OK, although I do use a Brita Filter Jug now and again when it begins to taste a bit metalic. I also buy sparkling mineral water as I like a bit of phizz now and again. Milk wise, I hate all those psuedo skimmed and semi milk products and will only use the full cream natural stuff. I am also a bit anal about using WA home produced products, so I only ever buy Bannister Downs Milk products as they are a West Australian Family Dairy and their milk tastes just as it used to years ago. So many of the milk companies in WA and Australia now have foreign ownership, and I like to keep my money in WA where it is earned and support family business.
  5. If you are travelling to Bull Creek Station from either Bateman, Bull Creek,Brentwood, Rossmoyne or Willetton, bear in mind that the carparks at Bull Creek and South St Stations will be full up by 7.30am, so you might need to consider walking or using bus transport to catch your train. There are of course routes through these suburbs that do not touch Leach Highway, South St or the Freeway. Google maps doesn't always get it right, so you might like to have a look at an old fashioned road directory to work out a route.
  6. Carine Senior High

    Sorry I have no personal experience of the school and have no contacts whose children have attended the school.
  7. IELTS

    Also have a look at the Pearson test as I understand that is more user friendly.
  8. We have finally arrived!

    Sounds a bit harsh! Is there any avenue for you to request they review their assessment?
  9. Good cafes around Perth

    Yes Ali, Willow Pond used to be so good a few years ago, but it seems to have lost its edge recently. Try Twig and Sparrow... they are in Woodpecker Ave in Willetton, off Apsley. I haven't heard of 6 Willows before.... must check that out..... thanks @Jen78 for mentioning it.
  10. Children's Party Venues in Perth

    If you are in the northern suburbs and are looking for a venue for a child's party, or even just somewhere to entertain them on a wet or hot day, have a look at Mighty Jungle in Morley. I looked after a couple of little people recently as their Dad was away for work and their Mum was sick..... they live northern suburbs and google found this place for me.... and it was brilliant. It was totally indoors and was a cold and wet the day when we were there and it was fine inside.... they have aircon, so I expect it would be good in the heat too. I found it extremely clean and well planned - cafe served brilliant coffee and the food was plentiful and very well priced. It wasn't until my two very exhausted charges and I were leaving that I realised they did parties and saw the party room all set up for action a short time later. Definitely will be going back there again!
  11. Baby BBQ and menu suggestions please!!!

    As it is becoming BBQ time again, I decided to resurrect this thread.... My little "Q" has over-wintered under the cover and has emerged today ready for the first meal of spring "a la barbie". I have a salmon steak, rubbed with Cajun seasoning, fresh asparagus, cherry tomatoes, sweet potato wedges. All are being cooked on the solid hot plate that has a little butter melted on it. So help me keep my menu different by suggesting what I can cook on my "Q".

    And sorry for the huge title in caps.... got a bit carried away there!
  13. So where do you buy your fruit and veg, dairy, meat? Do you just do one big shop at Coles or Woollies, or do you have some local independent greengrocer or butcher that you use? I am blessed to have a Gilberts store at Southlands Shopping Centre and buy the majority of my fruit, veg, cold meats, cheese etc there. Gilbert is a local guy who sells really good quality products that are mostly Australian produced, and West Australian as much as possible. His prices are always good too. I don't have a particular butcher that I use at the moment though and spread my custom between Leonards as they use Mt Barker organic chicken, my local IGA as they sell Harvey Beef and Linley Valley Pork, which is all ethically farmed, and the Dardanup Butchery Compan ( who raise and butcher all their own meat) when I am down in the Bunbury area and can have a big buy up. I try to use local businesses in everything that I purchase or services I use, so I am always interested to know of good places around Perth that I can investigate.
  14. What's for dinner tonight?

    Thanks Ali.... printed out and on the pile of recipes to try!
  15. Good cafes around Perth

    Being a retired lady who enjoys brekkie and lunch out, I am always looking for new cafes to try. This week some friends were staying with me from the Gold Coast and we wanted to have breakfast out on the way to deliver them back to the airport for their return flight. I suggested Kelly's Cafe in Canning Vale, but they had been there before and wanted to try somewhere else, so I did a google and came up with "Twig and Sparrow" in Willetton, which is minutes away from my place. Never heard of it before and apparently it is quite new - but what a little gem this place is. Very different menu, good food, delightful staff, good value, great coffee, easy parking. and how busy it was yesterday morning at 8am when we arrived for brekkie! So where do you like to go for coffee, breakfast, lunch that is local to you?
