Welcome to another addition of TGIF. I hope that you have all had a great week, and that it hasn’t rained as much as it has here in Sydney. Valentines day is tomorrow (Ozzy time) and I hope that you have all prepared something nice for the one you love and sometimes get irritated with. If you don’t have such a person then buy yourself something nice instead
Without further ado…
