girlfriend of tradie 29 killed on the job reveals the heartbreaking final conversation they had

The heartbroken girlfriend of a young electrician killed in a freak workplace accident has opened up on her devastating loss – and revealed their final conversation. 

Dion Hallion, 29, was working in the roof space of a beauty salon in Adelaide last Monday when he received a severe electric shock at about 3pm. 

Fire crews rushed to the scene, removing sheets of roofing to gain access to the tradesman and lifting him out with a hydraulic crane. Mr Hallion was rushed to hospital, where he died on Saturday.

His girlfriend of three years Bee Moran said she is still processing her partner’s sudden death – as she spoke about the last time she saw him alive. 

Ms Moran, who met Mr Hallion through Adelaide's tight-knit dodge ball community, remembered him as a thoughtful and funny partner

‘We did our morning ritual of breakfast and coffee, said we loved each other before we went off to our days, I guess you just don’t really expect it to be the last one,’ Ms Moran told The Adelaide Advertiser.  

‘It doesn’t make anything easier, but at least I don’t have the regret of not saying what I wanted to say. He knew that he was loved by me and I knew he was happy.’

Ms Moran, who met Mr Hallion through Adelaide’s dodge ball community, remembered him as a thoughtful and funny partner.

‘He was my partner and best friend and I would miss being away from him at work, but now I’ve got to miss him all the time,’ she said. 

Ms Moran stayed by her boyfriend's side everyday at the hospital until he died

She added: ‘So lucky to love you and to have been loved by you.’

mother of six krechelle carter who weighed 140kg drops half her body weight in a year

A young mother-of-six who weighed 140 kilos has shed half her body size in an astonishing body transformation.

Krechelle Carter, from Adelaide, has been regularly documenting her weight loss on social media where she detailed her exact fitness and meal plans.

The 30-year-old – who was diagnosed with a chronic illness – said her weight escalated after months of bed rest, multiple surgeries, steroids and medications. 

But determined to get on top of her weight once and for all, she lost 70 kilos in just 12 months after undergoing a lifestyle overhaul.

BREAKFAST: Boiled egg slice of ham

MORNING SNACK: An orange

LUNCH: Grilled chicken broccoli

AFTERNOON SNACK: Protein shake with coffee

DINNER: Lentil soup

‘It has been a year (about 70kg gone but look at that face, she’s happy). A year since I decided I would try to break free of all the tablets and operations and diseases,’ Krechelle, who blogs under Eight At Home, wrote on Instagram. 

‘I remember having a moment where I thought what’s the worst that happens if you start today? Your one day into forever. Is that such a bad thing?

‘I know it feels hard and scary. But it would be scarier to die in this bed and never of tried that day you got the feeling you could. And I’ve been trying every day since.’

Before her remarkable weight loss, Krechelle said she struggled with her daily life.

‘I couldn’t stand for longer than 45 minutes without my feet ballooning and feeling out of breath,’ she wrote in a post in June.

But her turning point came when she wanted to be able to ‘keep up with my kids’.

She went from walking 1,500 steps a day to 15,000 steps, and going from 3,000 calories a day to just 1,500 to 2,000.

‘I don’t follow any type of eating. I would say I’m closest to Mediterranean, except I don’t have fish and instead chicken. Again it what works for me,’ she explained.

‘But I eat pretty clean unprocessed food. I eat mostly high protein meals between hours and fast for 16 hours minimum. I have two coffees a day and 2L of water (that may increase due to exercise as may protein).

‘I normally go for a six to 10km walk with the dogs. And do 45 minutes of weights once the kids are in bed. I’m happy. I’m healthy.’

And while she now leads a healthier lifestyle, Krechelle said she still treats herself to her favourite foods. 

‘I have rest days and days where I eat ice cream,’ she explained.

‘I have good balance and it doesn’t feel like I’m trying to loose weight or restrict myself, I’m just living a healthy sustainable life.’

Her most recent exercises included walking 10,000 to 20,000 a day, running five kilometres in 56 minutes, playing netball, doing weight lifting workouts, walking her dogs, hiking or jogging up to four times a week.

‘If I continued the way I was, it would have killed me. Now I still have these struggles but no where near as bad as I did this time last year,’ she explained. 

‘And that’s why I share my story. As living proof of where hard work can take you and also to keep track of my progress. I talk about it so passionately because I have had health problems that I could not change.

‘I have had problems that are one in a million. And at times I’ve felt that’s rather unfair. But you know what else is unfair, putting my body through another second of being overweight when I was in control of that.

‘It was a hard road to take but it’s been worth every minute. This isn’t a tale about hating on myself as a bigger person it’s about me learning to love myself enough to give myself the best chance I can at living my life to its fullest most extensive.

‘And I promise you this the version of me would not make it as far as the version of me on the right. While I don’t lose weight to weigh a certain number or look a certain way. I am losing weight. And I am proud of that.’

mum divides opinion with her frozen egg hack after scoring 40 worth for 5 at the supermarket

A mum has divided opinion online, after she shared her ‘hack’ for scoring dozens of cheap eggs.

The Australian woman called Shelly posted on Facebook, where she said she picked up ‘over $40 worth of free range eggs for just over $5’ at her local Woolworths supermarket.

Once she got them home, Shelly froze the eggs even though their best before date was just a day away, so that they would ‘last longer’.

‘Eggs can last up to three months when you freeze them,’ Shelly posted.

‘These are great for us for omelettes and cakes, and the dogs as well.’ 

While many were impressed with the budget trick, others shared their surprise at the fact that you can freeze eggs to prolong their shelf life.

‘Never knew you could freeze eggs. You learn something new every day,’ one commenter posted.

Another said she is a fan of freezing her eggs:

‘I crack them into my silicone muffin trays freeze then pop them out and put in ziplock bags and back in the freezer for future use,’ she posted.

One woman said if you’re going to freeze eggs, then you need to follow the ‘float test’ to see whether they are safe to eat or not.

‘Put them in water and if they sink they are fine, if they float they aren’t!’ she wrote.

‘Before you crack them open be sure to do the float test because yes they can last up to three months but the time the get the the stores they can be already two months old.’

According to information on Healthline, you can keep eggs inside the fridge for five to six weeks, and in the freezer for up to one year.

Another way to see whether you egg is still edible is to conduct a ‘sniff test’.

An egg that has gone bad will give off an unmistakable odour. If everything looks normal and the egg has no smell, then it is fine to use.
