Tough times for Melbourne at the moment with the entire city not only under a lockdown but a nightly curfew. Melbourne has been voted the world’s most liveable city many, many times because our city is awesome and so are our people. We will get through this together. One day at a time. Be there for people. Check in on your neighbours, your friends and family. Our days will be sunny again.
Cheeky message but stay safe everyone.
First day back @kindredstudios so missed.
