Danielle Goreham sent a photo to share; "Hello, was cleaning out my shed yesterday when I came across the Hobbytex that mum used in the seventies, On rainy days we were allowed to use them to design our own pillow slips for our beds, They sold iron on transfers which you could then colour in with the hobbytex making designing easy." Yes, who else remembers Hobbytex. It was an Australian company and they first started in about 1968. Haven't heard much about them since the 80s and I'm not sure whether they are still going. As far as I can remember, like Danielle says, it was like a fabric paint in a ball-point tube and you could buy the patterns which you then painted! There were T-shirts, doileys, tablecloths and all sorts of things you could make patterned with Hobbytex
In a record for the University of WA, six Aboriginal medical students will graduate this weekend, including Vinka Barunga. The 27-year-old grew up on the outskirts of the Kimberley town of Derby and hopes to bring her skills home.
"Chased him down the street in me undies and he got too far, so I went back and got my car...and then I chased him down the street in my little purple car." This is Daniel McConnell. Deadset Aussie legend right here.
"He came to us at 5 days old straight from the hospital. He was our first foster care placement and we are the only home he has ever known. We are ecstatic. We can't imagine our family without this crazy 2 year old!!! My husband and I are both nurses. I work in Labor & Delivery, and unfortunately see first hand the horrible situations babies are born too every day. It was there that I found out that there weren't any open foster homes in our region. We had done years of unsuccessful infertility treatments, and I brought up adoption through foster care. My husband was hesitant at first. But he has four other kids from a previous marriage (I had none) and he told me for years he never thought he could love a child as much that wasn't biologically his. But then he said he saw that I love his kids like they are my own and realized it was possible. A lot of prayers later we decided to go for it. Now, this little boy is the light in his daddy's eye. He fits right in with our crazy family. The only advice I would give to future parents, is to be open. Have an open heart and open mind. God will place a child with you that you can make a difference with. - Copher Family <3" (Credit: Facebook/Together We Rise) #9Today
Breathing out here in between rounds of water work with the glare of the sun in my eyes, not pulling a 'wanker selfie face' that so many sad n f'd up people do. I'm sending double shakas to all the people who support me and always send me well wishes. U guys rock. Not long to go till I rock n roll. @maineventtv #feb3 Team Danny Green http://tdgfit.co/TDG-Home
