And Another Weekend Comes Along

Well my day couldn't have started of any better than this...
  • I jumped on the bus at my normal stop only to be greeted by a sign over the tagger onner "Free Rides, System Error" whoo hoo that saved me $2.50.

  • The morning was busy and before I knew it, it was lunchtime and I met up with a girlfriend to wander up the street and grab a bite to eat. She didn't get what she ordered and my bagel was very lacking in Avocado, but even that didn't put me in a bad mood........
Do you know why?

  • It is Friday and I now have 2 days off to recharge my batteries before I have to do it all again.

  • The weather in Perth is still fabulous.........

  • The girlfriend that I had lunch with is coming over for a drink after work............
  • A blogging friend got the new apartment that she wanted
  • Australia is out of the World Cup Cricket
  • Moto GP is back
  • AFL season has started again
All is right in my little part of the world.

A Rough Couple of Weeks

Hi Everyone well I am back but this will just be a short post to update you on a couple of things........then I hope to be back posting as normal next week or weekend.

On the 18 February my dad passed away after a 10 month battle with cancer, he was a great dad and we shared a special bond as I was his first born and also born on his birthday so each year from now on my birthday will be more special than ever.

I flew out to New Zealand (Christchurch) arriving on the 21 February along with my brother and his family.

Tuesday 22 February a 6.5 earthquake happened in Christchurch and basically wrecked my home town, luckily none of my family or friends were seriously injured but some of them did lose their houses.

My dads memorial service was the 24 February but many people couldn't make it due to the earthquake and the damage to the roads etc, but it was still a wonderful day.

Needless to say the last couple of weeks have been a bit of a blur due to death, earthquakes and lack of sleep but one of the best things to happen was a phone call from my girlfriend of 20+ years from the UK she tracked me down at my mums house to make sure that we were all ok as I couldn't get on the internet due to no power and a lack of internet cafes.

I hope that you all stick with me over the next couple of posts as I post some amazing things that came out of the visit back home for me and I promise not to dwell on this subject for to long.
