SFI bonus

1 Comment Learn Swedish, Move to Sweden

It’s handy to have a sister that works within the social service. 🙂 She called me up yesterday informing me about something she heard from one of her clients. You can get money if you pass some of the Swedish language courses that immigrants can take through SFI. The reason for the bonus is to encourage immigrants to learn Swedish faster and hence get a job faster too. I think it’s a great way to increase the motivation. Read more

That’s what I’m walking about

No Comments Sverige vs Australia

Ever considered running/walking from Adelaide to Melbourne? Former AFL footy player Shane Crawford (Crawf) did just that, ran/walked the over 760 kilometers between Adelaide and Melbourne in support of Breast Cancer Network Australia. He finished today, 11 days after he left Rundle Mall in Adelaide and began his journey. Pretty impressive, I thought going by car between the two cities was a bit of a pain.

 

Two famous Swedish profiles, Gert Fylking and Robert Aschberg, did something similar last year when they walked through Sweden in support of the Prostate Cancer Foundation. In 100 days they walked the 1860 kilometers between Ystad (in the very south of Sweden) and Haparanda (in the far north) – read about it HERE (in Swedish). Imagine if someone would do the same in Australia, walk from coast to coast….a bit further that’s for sure. 😛

Aussie bloke

1 Comment Typically Aussie

Absolutely no prejudices here 😛

I hate the new-age guys
I’m a chauvinist
I live on beer and pies
Tried to tell ya
But you look at me like maybe I’m an angel underneath
Hehe, don’t brush me teeth
Yesterday I lied
But all me mates gave me a real good alibi
Thanks guys
(No worries, mate)
I really went out drinking
I told you I was at work
Don’t ask me for commitment
Because it’s something I will shirk

I’m a bloke, I’m an ocker
And I really love your knockers
I’m a labourer by day
I piss up all me pay
Watching footy on T.V.
Just feed me more V.B.
Just pour my beer and get my smokes and
go away

Or take me as I am
This may mean you’ll have to fetch another can
Rest assured if I start to make you breakfast
I’m going to extremes
But tomorrow I’ll get shit-faced
And today won’t mean a thing

I’m a bloke, I’m a yobbo
And me best mate’s name is Robbo
Winfield is me cigarette
I dress in flannelette
Shearer’s singlet that is blue
Throw in a few tattoos
You know you wouldn’t want me any other way

When you think you’ve got me figured out
The season’s already changing
(From footy to cricket)
I think it’s cool when I act like a tool
And me mates try to shave me

I’m a bloke, I’m an ocker
And I really love your knockers
I’m a labourer by day
I piss up all me pay
Watching footy on T.V.
Just feed me more V.B.
Just pour my beer and get my smokes and
go away

I’m a bloke, I’m a yobbo
And me best mate’s name is Robbo
Winfield is me cigarette
I dress in flannelette
Shearer’s singlet that is blue
Throw in a few tattoos
You know you wouldn’t want me any other way

New Cat-alogue

No Comments Random

IKEA make furniture for people as well as cats. Cats find the happiest places in the home – that’s why IKEA UK has used them in its experimental new advert – Herding cats. 100 cats were released into the IKEA Wembley UK store at night when filming the ad. I bit weird if you ask me but innovative, have a look!
