    Where does everybody live these days?

    I'm in Northern Tas, not likely to move anytime soon. I'm quite happy to drive the 50 minutes south everyday for work in Launceston, have been doing it for over 20 yrs now if you include work and study. Tasmanian's are a funny bunch people are always making comments to me that it's a long way to drive everyday when it's only 65km.

    And What Are You Listening To?

    Going for some 80's nostalgia and came across some KC & The Sunshine Band, I'd add in Devo's Whip IT and Men Without Hats Safety Dance but the rabbit hole that is youtube may take me in another direction :)

    Online or bricks&mortar ...

    I never once worried about any potentials commission from sales while working in retail, to say I or others in retail don't give a shit is a gross generalisation. May I suggest that you try and find a store where the staff pride themselves of the service they offer as opposed to the commission. From TheManFromPOST brief description it appears that the staff were trying their best to help but the inventory mangement system let them down. Having worked in retail I will not put up with poor service as there is no excuse for it, so I'll go to another store or buy online.

    What Did You Watch Lately ?

    I watched Sammy J and his NBN rollout on iview. https://iview.abc.net.au/programs/sammy-j/LE1706V010S00 I quite enjoy his political commentary, Now is not the right time and Bonk!, Bonk! Bonk! are in my opinion outstanding.

    I will shop locally if the service is good, if the staff just can't seem to be bothered to talk to me for whatever reason then I'll go else where or buy online. With Launceston being my closest city I'm not exactly spoiled for choices unless I want clothes or food, white/brown goods are a choice between Harvey, JB-HiFi and a few others a couple of which a local however I've found the service at these places to be less than satisfactory so I don't go back.

    What's on your mind?

    Shit Weeks. Ever had one of those weeks that just stands out for being really shit and unforgettable for all the wrong reasons, well last week was like that for me. Last Wednesday my cousin called telling me she wouldn't be at work (We work in IT at the same school) as her Mum had gone into hospital, 2 1/2 hours later she calls me telling me that her Mum had passed away. Shit is what that was and I thought me week couldn't get any worse, how wrong was I. Fast forward to Sunday morning when the universe well an truly informed me just how bad my week was going to be, at 7am my brother called to inform me that our mother had passed away. Mum was my Auntie who passed on Wednesday older sister. My mum died with dad by her side a week before their 51st wedding anniversary, now I know my father can be a difficult man but dying to get out of another anniversary that's even extreme for me Mum. I knew my parents loved each other, I knew how deeply mum cared for dad, it took the pain and grief on my fathers face and in his voice for me to truly comprehend the love he felt for my mother, amazing that at 44yrs old it took the death of my mother for me to realise that. If there is anything to take from this post of mine hopefully it's don't wait to tell those you close you that you love them, because tomorrow you might not get the chance. Circle of Life :)

    So far so good...

    I went from 85kg down to 70kg last year after a couple of 8 week stints on the 800 blood sugar diet also by Michael Mosley, my wife also had good results following this particular way of eating. We have somewhat fallen of the wagon so to speak and fell back into some bad eating habits, however it's no big deal and we are both confident that we can get back into the swing of things again, most importantly for myself I lost more than 10cm off my waist. I've got more work to do to get rid of my belly fat and that's the main goal for me, then once I attain my goal weight I'll switch to 1 day of fasting a week. Seriously owning a car and getting married have been the worst thing for my waist line. I forgot to say well done Mac Dude on your loss so far.

    Thinking of you dude. Thinking of you dude. +1 If it's not too personal, how'd the spinal cord thing happen? If it is, just say. Thanks. Good news though, they're booked and flying home tomorrow arrive in Lonny around 3pm. I'm pretty stoked right now.

    I haven't seen my wife or youngest for a week as they've been at the RCH while he recovers from surgery last friday. Surgery involved the removal of 6 pins from his left leg correcting club foot and bladder augmentation to fix (hopefully) a neurogenic bladder (high pressure under low volume) for those of you wondering, He lost control of bladder and bowel after having his spinal cord de-tethered 2yrs ago. Today is the day we find out if they'll be home for xmas. The little fella just has to get up and about, if he can walk around using a frame then they'll be able to fly home tomorrow. At least I'm off work until the 9th of January.

    All the best dude, hope the little guy comes through OK. :) He's fine he's just having corrective surgery to fix his club foot, his bladder wasn't a problem until he had his spinal cord detethered 2yrs ago. Just don't seem to catch a break atm. We'll live and in the grand scheme of things we are better off than most. I'll be flying home the day of his surgery so buses aren't really requires, we also live an hour from Devonport & Lonny so fairly easy for me to go either way. Mrs Q doesn't like boats tho, mostly because she can't swim which seeing as she has lived right near the beach most of her life seems really odd to me.

    Got notification today that child 3.0 will be having his bladder augmentation surgery next week in conjunction with the removal of the frame and 6 pins from his leg. Changing accommodation easy, changing flights man that sucks. Looks like flights home Melbourne to Launceston will increase to about $400 each for my wife and son. Stupid 10 day stay in hospital to recover.

    I can't get over the feeling that I'm a terrible person. To give some background to the story I work in a school IT department with my cousin, she is always confusing the accronym for SSD. We currently have our principal's laptop in for a service and have decided hey we should give it an upgrade to an SSD so she was going to txt our manager just to dot the i's and cross the t's asking to upgrade the pricipal's laptop to an SDD, close but no cigar, so I tell her it's an STI thinking that I'm being very obvious. Now instead of texting my cousin has decided that she'll call our manager who's out getting some coffee at the local supermarket, he answers her call on speaker phone where she promptly asks can we give the principal an STI. It's at this point when I laughing so hard that tears are running down my face that she has clicked and starts laughing. We laughed more when the manager got back to the office relating how people turned and looked when he was asked could we give our principal an STI. My cousin will now be out for revenge, it was worth it though because I haven't laughed that hard or for as long in a very long time.
