It’s going to be a bit wet and windy this weekend so staying home is the go. Here’s some ideas of this to do in the warmth and comfort of your home.

Do some puzzles! The Newcastle Weekly puzzles are available online https://newcastleweekly.com.au/puzzles/ or pick up a copy each week.

Do some cooking! Cook a nice satisfying winter warming stew or put some fire in your belly with some Fire Dumplings in Chilli Oil https://newcastleweekly.com.au/fire-dumplings-in-chilli-oil/

Have a movie marathon! Stuck for ideas or think you’ve watched everything? Check out this link for What’s Streaming in August https://newcastleweekly.com.au/whats-streaming-in-august/
