  1. I remember Andrews wife going in to labor... And i remember Wombat too...if memory serves he owes me a drink or two...
  2. There is some crazy rain in Townsville. I see the strand is in flood currently. Crazy amounts of water everywhere....
  3. Breathe in, breathe out, repeat.... XX
  4. that shouldnt happen and I would expect big time whinging from clients if that had happened on my watch.
  5. bargain basement up here. Free entry across the shire. Its the worst thing to ever happen as it has bought out every drug ****ed idiot that cant follow rules, cant swim, doesnt bath...My last season at my pool was the worst I encountered in 11 seasons of managing that pool. Glad to be done with it. My bet is there will be a drowning in one of the pools in the shire before years end 2018. My pool is in it's second season of being free, the other pools come on board on January 1. I could go on for days about this.

  7. Goughy, I cant help but agree with you. I'm menopausal and this year has been particularly tough in that Dr's aren't taking my complaints seriously and i've suffered. I've suffered so badly. Sitting on the floor crying with a knife beside me because I just cant handle the crap that my body is going through. If I told this to a Dr they would want to medicate me or put me in a mental health unit. I don;t need that I need my issues to be addressed. The point I'm trying to make here is, I wonder how many other women my age are going through the same things and feeling the same way but choose to not keep pushing through. Ive been lucky enough to find a natural remedy that seems to be helping tenfold and I'm so grateful for that because I really dont know that I would have been seeing 50 in next week without it. I don't know what I can do to help people going through depression and contemplating suicide but I want to help. I really want o help.
  8. Reading our local paper on Wednesday and seeing that my favorite Journo had passed away last week. I read the story expecting that it had been a car accident but no mention of cause of death. Slowly it all comes together when I realise that the 'black dog' status my friend had put on fb the week before was about Sam. I never met Sam but man I loved his work. He was everywhere. Did some f##cking fantastic investagitive (spelling) journalism into ADANI recently. Had only recently left Bowen and made an exciting move to Mackay. To say I was and still am in shock is an understatement. How can the death of someone I have never met have such a profound affect on me? Always remember, even on your darkest, worst days there is always someone, just one person that loves you and will be affected by you taking this road. Sorry I know I'm not in here much anymore, and I know Sam isn't one of ours, but I had to put it somewhere. YOU ARE LOVED. YOU MATTER..
  9. There are so many good tutorials available to teach your kids to swim yourself. Cost is not an issue really. Laurie Lawrence for example is always putting up links from his swim schools. In my opinion, at the end of the day it comes down to time in the water more than anything. I have one mum who has a very whiney young fella in the water at lesson time, but she is at the pool 3 afternoons a week while her daughter trains and doesn't get in the pool with the little one to run through what we do in lessons. What a wast of 3 x 90 minute sessions. Practice swimming for even 10-15 minutes, play and have fun with your kids for the rest of it. I just don't understand. As an aside, I had one family ring me last week and withdraw their kids from lessons as they will be doing Little Athletics, which starts after the pool closes at the end of April....Their youngest is still a drowning risk....
  10. I could go on and on about this subject. As tragic as it is when a little one drowns, it falls back to supervision. I see it all the time and it makes me very angry. Ive had parents pulling their kids out of swimming lessons because it clashes with dancing.... edit to add that when my staff and I did our lifeguard updates last month our trainer suggested that baby and toddler drowning stats wouldn't change until parents started being charged with negligence. I know that sounds harsh but I can't say I don't disagree.
