Flash floods in eastern Indonesian province of Papua have killed at least 58 people, rescue workers are still looking but are struggling to reach the remote areas as roads are blocked by landslides and fallen trees, so the number of dead may rise.
More than 4,000 people have had to leave their homes. Torrential rains began on Saturday evening and continued into the night, triggering mudslides and flash floods.
What a horrible tragedy. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families.
A 29-year-old man was stabbed to death in a fight in Fulham in the early hours of Saturday on the junction of Gowan Avenue and Munster Road, dying at the scene.
I used to work around the corner from where this took place. It’s so scary that these awful acts of violence are closing in all around us and becoming commonplace. My thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and family of the victim.
I’m not sure why I have this slot in my blog, lol, because I don’t do a hell of a lot on a weekly basis. Week 5 of the new job done, still great. Every day is different and interesting.
Went to see an old work colleague from when I worked at the motorbike training school on Thursday night after work, I haven’t seen Stacy in a few years. We’ve been doing the “we must meet soon dance” for ages and finally got around to pinning down a date.
Weekend was taken up with writing, housework and a visit to my family.
I finally hit “The End” on the first draft of book 5 from The Children on the Streets series. Now the edits begin. Fun times.
