Other Plans for my "Sabbatical"
The Good The Bad and The Ugly
OK, I have small list of things I'd like to get done while I'm "between jobs" and "exploring other opportinities".

First, fix my bike some more. I might need a new front wheel. And my brakes still need some work - thinking I need to completely dismantle the front one and put it back together with a new cable etc. Oh, while I'm at it, I need to make some fixes to Deb's bike (which uses obscure French-style parts!) and reassemble another bike I have in parts in the back garden as a spare.

Next, I want to get another tattoo. I'm certain of the design, might thing about the exact style. Also need to pick a good tattooist - the guy who did my last tat moved to the UK, and the guy who did Deb's tat is between studios!

There are also a number of PC's at my place in need of attention, or indeed construction! That'll keep me busy - although I am liking doing analog things more lately. See fixing bikes above :-)

What else? I'm more or less forced to examine my superannuation. I've found a far better fund than the one I'm in, so that'll be pretty easy.

Also gives me the chance to hang out with my toddler niece - she's in the country for the next month or so - what excellent timing!

I might also make some semi-major purchases, although not before I've secured another job. Things like a real laptop, possibly a cargo bike. And maybe a bigger NAS. My intention is to save at least half the money I've been given. Which should also allow me to go to Europe next year as (vaguely) planned :-)

you can take up painting again!

don't spend money on more stuff, come over here instead once Deb is able to travel.

G'day Zoya,

Hey you have an account on here - log in so you can reply properly!

I'm going to save as much of my new found wealth as possible. And indeed it should make our half-planned trip to Europe next year much easier - so we can meet Max :-)

Legoland here we come!!!!
