The good news thread

Recommended Posts

Speaking of training with kids.

 

My daughter is nearly 7 and she can now do 15m of freestyle [emoji41] so each time we go to the pool (at least once every weekend I have her[emoji1][emoji1]) we swim side by side smiling at each other under the water as we go. [emoji4][emoji4][emoji4][emoji4][emoji4] awesome stuff

I don't get to do it anywhere near enough! And I could have used some more cymbals.

I was flying my drone yesterday & lost it into a backyard somewhere. Thought it was gone for good, but travelling around the neighborhood & some dorky looking guy hands it back.

 

Awesome.

What model drone Ex?

 

 

You guys need to read a few other threads.

 

 

Well farrk me! Im out the front of my place working yesterday and hear a noise I look up and see a drone quite high up.

Now im a pretty easy going guy but im thinking why ****ing fly a drone over houses.

Next minute its dropping down in my yard I walk out the back and there it is stuck in the plants!

So I grabbed a garbage bag and put it in it and continued on working a couple hrs later finally I see a ute driving laps around the streets thought its gota be him.

Bingo it is ! Reckons its not his but his mates ... so to stero type this guy looks like ya typical bogan whos just had a session on the cones !(he was a concreter )

I didn't yell and scream because that gets you know where but I told him it was bloody stupid for obvious privacy issues. I get it for action sports or work footage and his lucky it didn't land im my neighbours yard as it would have had a sledge hammer through it!

What would you guys have done?

All good Leon. I just couldn't resist it at the time when oldschool posted it. I think 1 or 2 noticed & commented on the other threads. :)

 

Back on good news. My wife's Birthday today, and we had a lovely walk with the dog this morning. It's not often we get the chance to get out like that on a weekday, and add to that it was below 30 degrees, so added bonus.

 

Have a good Valentines everyone.

Our baby Lola Sue is now thriving after being very premature and spending 120 days in NICU. Now at home in our sweet new pad and up to 6kg and thriving.

 

We also opened our 11th location and now have 60 Staff ð³

 

To think we started with a lil husband and wife team using used furniture in an apartment in 2002.

I know what it's like Niseko. Our 1st was premi and very ill when born. It was touch n go for a while. Whilst intensive care at the Children's hospital were fantastic, I had trouble staying in there. 1 week we lost a number of them

 

Now he is 6 ft 2 and loving life, working for Yamaha and married.

 

Congrats. Nothing makes your heart beat stronger than the one you made.

Thanks FM, love to hear those success stories. Did you see the Saffer Wade van Niekeirk, who won the 400m in world record time at Rio was born at 28 weeks, at 1kg.

 

Lola was the same - 2 steps forward one step back in ICU. Glad to be rid of those daily trips.

Going to dinner tonight, sans kids. Shouldn't really be a big deal but neither of us can remember the last time we did! Checked my wardrobe and I can only find one collared shirt smaller than a size L! I haven't worn size L in nearly a decade now, and even though I've put on 6 odd kgs I still don't need one. My one M shirt is old enough that is probably back in style. Even better, while I like it my wife hates it so that's kind of a bonus ;)

 

And it's nice to go somewhere where I shouldn't wear a t-shirt!

Ate too much and just walked an hour out of guilt!

 

Best moment of the night - young couple at the table next to ours. Girl comes back from the toilet and the guy asks her, "how'd ya go?" The look on her face......

Off to Mallorca tomorrow for a week of training at the Stephen Roche camp. Taking my shiny new aero wheels (let's hope I can stop!).

 

I 'might' even go for a swim :shocking::schnauz:

Mjainoz, I bought some Zipp 404 Firecrest clinchers. Very impressed with them so far, rode in some insane winds in Mallorca and stayed upright! They seemed to climb ok (unlike the rider) braking is good as is handling.

My baby daughter Lola Sue was born three months too soon but fought like a tiger and is now 9 months from her birth date / 6 months adjusted and is thriving, needing not medical assistance at all. We just got back from a trip to Australia were we had a naming ceremony for all the family to meet her where she and her Mum entered through all guests in an arch to Circle of Life and then they did the Lion King lift while standing up on the park bench. 

As you can see I the photo her 23 year old big sister and her get on great  (I bookended my reproductive career) .

Now back in Singapore and living in our flash new pad with live in helper and I'm working about 10 hours a week and the dog just arrived from Japan to make our little family complete. The dog does get jelly af of Lola getting the bones though - he's too old to chew them now and she loves em. 

 

Im not racing at all this year, so no training plan hanging over my head all day, and the Mrs is done with tris so less family competitive stress   

We've still got our stresses like everyone and who knows when shit will turn bad but lifes pretty good for now.

I'm not sure if this qualifies as good news but some might think so. Didn't seem important enough for its own thread.

Ricky Gervais posed a question on twitter last night, and tagged my wifes account in it.  She's an atheist/evolutionist blogger/twitterer, and while not a fan of his shows is a huge fan of him as a person.  Needless to say she was pretty stoked.

I'm the opposite, I'm a fan of his shows but not really a fan of him. 

I watched ' David Brent: Life on the Road' a while back, it was a train wreck and  I realised just how huge Stephen Merchant was in making RG seem funny.

We got a letter from the fertility clinic we used the other day.  We donated our remaining embryo's when we decided to have no more kids and the couple that received them has finally used them all, having so far had two boys (which we already knew about).  But it's given us a combined satisfied yet curious feeling - happy we could help someone else, but now we kinda want to meet them...... which I guess is pretty normal.  Our daughter knows, but our son is a bit of a sensitive soul so we haven't told him yet.
