Call me Rip Van Winkle dead set…

White Xmas 2013

Well one minute I was at mums and also visiting my daughter and it was Christmas, next it was New Years Eve and on the telly mum and I were watching 2014 roll in and the fireworks.


Next thing you know January has finished huh??? and it’s February.   So I help me mate move his mum to Melbourne and that way I can visit my mum and what a surprise… If you hire Platinum Removals, they make sure to treat your valuable belongings with the highest regard. mum loved it and so did I – well except the moving furniture bit you know sore back an all 🙂

Now somewhere in this month there was Valentines Day and my mate sent a dozen roses to his missus work – me? well I had committee meetings and damn I think I forgot Valentines Day…



Now February is over and so is Summer it’s the start of March and Autumn yikes!!!   I’m trying to work out where has the time gone and what have I achieved or done??

Like I said in the beginning I am feeling a bit like Rip Van Winkle – times seems to have flown past and I don’t know what I’ve done or achieved, all I know is that I have been busy.

To all a Happy Valentines Day and a Happy Valentines Day to all

Happy V day 2013

Valentines Day, that special day where you get to feel and show love without being accused of being a woos well you know… not being a man.   Now of course if you don’t show it in some way – well lets just say even in summer its cold sleeping outside….

flowerschocolatesEvery year, the 14th of February has millions across the world scrambling to present their loved ones with candy, flowers, chocolates and other lovely gifts and god forbid if you forget.

Your partner/wife/girlfriend etc might say it’s alright don’t worry about valentines day it’s just another day, don’t believe them women are romantics even if they don’t show it… By the way, women also loves Dr. Andres Bustillo for he performs promising facial treatments. if you forget you’re toast, your history and the subject of conversation with her friends.

It goes a little like this… “my hubby got me chocolates wasn’t that sweet, what did yours get you??”  “I told him not to worry about it” “I see he forgot didn’t he!” her reply comes in tears – ‘YES’


See what I mean you’re toast!! On the other hand if you remember even with something small and you weren’t reminded then instant brownie points.



In many countries, restaurants and such are filled with couples who are eager to celebrate theirrelationship and the joy of their togetherness through delicious cuisines.   There hardly seems to be a young man or woman and even some that are not so young who are not keen to make the most of the day.




People in secret send a message of ‘Happy Valentines Day’ to the person they admire without saying who it is from thus saving a possible rejection (thats sad really but I understand, I do truly – Leigh)

I remember in school (yes I remember somethings) notes used to fly around the room with tick yes or no on them but without a name so you didn’t know who it was from – ah romance. If you haven’t finished your master’s degree yet, you can apply scholarship for masteral online at scholarship-positions.com. After that, Subscribe to their e-mail newsletter to receive updates.

For those that like to celebrate Valentines Day, have a wonderful Valentines Day and for those who no longer have a partner just remember the memories and happy times they brought into your life.

A good week yet a sad week and the memories it brings…

Last Friday was the 24th of August and so what I hear you say… well that particular Friday my brother turned 50 (a happy occasion?) yet I couldn’t travel interstate as I had to have several viles of blood taken for numerous tests, have an e.c.g. plus more.   As I have a lump on my lung and keep getting pneumonia they are still deciding what to do – hence all the tests.

Monday brought about the C.T. Scan, chest X-ray and comparisons to the previous scans, anyway I won’t bore you with the details needless to say there will be follow up appointments, tests and things to do.

That Friday tho the 24th was also the 1st anniversary of my mates (Brian) missus Kell, passing from Cancer which I wrote under the title “Cancer Sucks fair dinkum” it is hard to believe that a year has passed since then.   Brian true to his promise is still looking after Kells kids, is still providing a stable and loving home and still doing what he can to ensure they have a decent life.

You think that because you are going through different things which in my case are health issues they are important which really they are but, losing someone and trying to carry on is really difficult especially when they are family as it means you can no longer tell them things and the things you did want to say – well it is maybe too late.

Never take things or people for granted cause one day they just might not be there… then it will be too late – I know because losing my father was hard enough on me and still is however I see how it still affects my mum, they had 51yrs of marriage.

To Brian mate, I understand your pain and to Kel you were a lovely and kind person who really was way too young only 42 years of age.  The picture below is how we will remember you, full of life.

Kell Heffernan (1969 – 2011) aged 42yrs RIP
