THE Shed Take-Away in Mundubbera has re-opened.
Despite being delivered a double blow when flood waters inundated both their home and business, the owners are taking it one day at a time.
Hester Moore is dividing her time between preparing food in her shop and pulling the kitchen and bathroom out of her home.
"We couldn't get the fridge out, it floated about and murdered our kitchen," Mrs Moore said.
"We were luckier with the shop, although the salad bar fridge was knocked over we dried it out and it's working."
These are long days for Mrs Moore who opens at 5am to cater for workers who start early and doesn't close her doors until 7.30pm during the week.
But she is keeping her customers happy and putting the rumours that she wouldn't re-open to rest.
"People who said that obviously don't know me very well," she said.
"The worst thing was the mud and the number of times we had to scrub and disinfect.
"Bruce Beresford brought water from his dam to help us with the clean-up so I'm very grateful to him, to my staff, to the Royal Hotel where we stayed for a week and to Ben and Melvie Halfpenny who've lent us their caravan to live in for the time being."
