Proposal

Hilarious! Woman uses cousin’s ‘manicured’ hand for engagement photo

Let’s be honest, every woman has dreamed of the day the love of her life gets down on one knee and pops the question… and most women want everything to be perfect!

Whilst some get a sneaky suspicion that a proposal is on its way, for most loving ladies it comes as a sweet surprise.

Melbourne woman Diana was one of those ladies who had no idea about her impending engagement and was therefore unprepared and un-manicured – but have no fear, because the genius cousin of this bride-to-be was there to lend a helping hand.

Instead of using her own hand in the engagement photos, Diana used her cousin’s perfectly manicured ring-ready hand to show off her new bling!

Diana’s cousin shared the photos on social media over the weekend, and as expected, they went viral.

“My cousin’s boyfriend proposed to her but she didn’t have her nails done lmao,” she wrote.

“Diana is a nurse so she never has her nails done. José planned this surprise proposal & couldn’t really get her to do her nails without raising suspicion,” the cousin added.

“José convinced Diana that the celebration was for his parent’s wedding anniversary, before getting on his knees and revealing that it was all really for her! My girl organised HER OWN proposal party anyway there were photographers & that’s how this shot was captured.”

Well played Diana, well played!

QAS Ron McCartney

WATCH: Gold Coast paramedics treat palliative care patient to ice cream on final journey to hospital

Two Gold Coast paramedics have been praised for their kindness and compassion on social media, after going above and beyond for a terminally ill patient.

Paramedics Kate Hanafy and Hanna Hoswell were called to Sharon and Ron McCartney’s home last week to transport Mr McCartney to palliative care.

When Sharon mentioned that her 72-year-old husband had barely eaten for two days, the paramedics asked him if he could eat anything, what would it be?

“A caramel sundae,”  Mr McCartney said.

The officers then made a detour on the way to the hospital so Mr McCartney could enjoy his favourite dessert in the back of the ambulance.

A photo of Ron enjoying his caramel sundae was shared online by the Queensland Ambulance Service and has since gone viral.

Today, Mr McCartney’s family met Paramedics Kate Hanafy and Hanna Hoswell to say thank you for their kind gesture.

Watch the video below:

Sadly Mr McCartney died on Saturday in palliative care, following a 17-year fight with pancreatic cancer.

Lunch box pack

Mum makes sickening discovery while washing her children’s lunch boxes

“I’m absolutely appalled. I feel awful”

A mother has taken to Facebook in a bid to warn other parents about the potential nasties that could be lurking in their children’s lunch boxes.

Grace Bollen was cleaning out her kids lunch boxes about a week ago when she came across a little black spot in the corners.

“So today, something in me prompted me to pry open the glue in the kids lunchboxes. I saw a little black spot in the corners while washing,” the mother wrote in the now-viral post.

“This is what I found.”

Posting a photo of her discovery, Ms Bollen revealed that the unseen, sealed part of her children’s lunch boxes had been growing mould.

“I’m absolutely appalled. I feel awful that my children have been eating lunch out of these,” she wrote.

“The children’s lunchboxes have been hand washed each night & left open to dry.”

She continued by advising other parents to avoid buying “any lunchboxes that you can’t clean ALL the parts”

Since posting the photos on August 18, the mother has provided an update revealing that she’s been in contact with the company’s who make the lunch boxes.

“They are working to rectify the problem with the manufacturers & make them water tight,” she wrote.

“Please check with your supplier if there are any issues with yours.”

She also provided a handy tip for parents.

“You can hold up the lighter ones to the light & the mould shows through.”

Aldi launches adult-only wine and cheese Advent calendars for Christmas

All we want for Christmas is… Aldi’s wine and cheese advent calendars.

Move over chocolate, there’s a new kid on the block and it’s going to make for one very Merry Christmas!

German discount supermarket Aldi has announced they’re bringing back their adult-only wine advent calendars so we can countdown to the jolliest day of the year one mini bottle of booze at a time!

“Back by popular demand, our amazing 2018 Aldi Wine Advent Calendar features a fabulous new design to create the perfect centrepiece – after all, what could be better for getting in the Christmas spirit than an adult advent calendar full of wonderful wine?” Aldi said in a statement.

Hidden behind each door of the $70 calendar is a mixture of 24 mini bottles of either red, white, sparkling and rosé wines for you to enjoy each and every day.

Better yet, the supermarket chain has also revealed that they’re launching a CHEESE advent calendar this year because wine and cheese goes hand-in-hand, duh.

The cheese advent calendar features 24 imported mini cheeses and is a little more affordable at $12.99.

While the mouth-watering advent calendars are being sold in both the US and UK from 4 November, it has not yet been confirmed whether they’ll make their way down under.

Feel free to start some sort of petition, or tweet your desire for the calendars to Aldi for us though…
