Look what turned up on my doorstep yesterday!
Yes that’s right – 10 oranges!
I agreed a while back to be involved in the Citrus Australia Go Orange campaign. Oranges have amazing benefits and so they are promoting it over 10 days and I was asked to eat an orange a day for 10 days and to post it on Twitter, Instagram etc – so here I am.
This week all my posts will be orange based 🙂
If you are an avid orange fan and want to see what everyone involved is up to then you can do at #GoOrange on Twitter or Instagram and Facebook.
