    I am so glad you answered this! I laughed at so many of your answers and I love that I have no idea what you are talking about in some of your answers. Like, what is lime icecream with jellies? I would bet its tasty as hell but it sounds crazy! Tui, I love your answer to your biggest annoyance. Funny.

    Your dad’s upadate – adorable.

    I love Goody Goody Gum Drops ice-cream. We had to try it when we came over and it was awesome.
    Unfortunately that wouldn’t have made it back to Aus in the plane, but 3kg of Whittakers Chocolate did- Kiwi Fruit flavour was my fav!
