I'mmmmmm Baaaaaccck!!!!

Well.... I am BACK!!!!

There has been SO much happening of late, I can not begin to tell you... But today, it has all come to a conclusion...

You see, after many months/years of agonising over it, I have sold up in Merrylands, the house that Louise and I had shared so many happy years, and also some of the darkest moments I have ever experienced. It was a delightful old home, built in 1927, and came with a large yard.

But, living alone, in a large house and yard, came with a lot of maintenance, which my bad back, could not do anymore. Although the memories will always be with me, it was just simply time to sell! Although purchased for a good price back in 2005, 'bring on the removalist', I was shocked at what I got for the house, which meant I could clear the mortgage, and then buy in cash, so I am a home owner, and debt free!!! It is truely a wonderful experience!

Whilst my sale went through without any hassles, I can not say the same for my new place. What was meant to be a 10 day settlement, ended up being a day short of two months!!!! Oh well...

NOW, I can get on and lay a new lawn in the courtyard, put a deck to the rear of the house with an awning as well, and then I am all done with nothing else to do!!!

Lots of posts over the coming weeks as we get things done, but for now, this is a brief update!!!

Whats everyone been up to of late??

Hoo roo for now...

Ok - so today I got a new watch...

Ok - today I got a new watch...

Ok, so today, I did something completely random, I got myself a new watch (as a belated Wedding Anniversary/Christmas present...)

A few months back, I did a market research for an international cloud company, and I got a Myers Gift Card. I also got some money for Christmas. So, this morning I trundled down to Myer in Westfield Parramatta and did some 'me' shopping. There was a few I liked, but it came down to two, this one and a Michael Kors model.

Otherwise, today was spent having lunch with a mate, and a trip to the chemist for a script and home, where housework (yawn) took my afternoon through to this evening.

Hoo roo for now...

Goodbye 2015 and Hello 2016

Happy New Year - 2016

Well, its another year, and welcome to 2016... Finally, the rest of the world is now here given we, in Sydney, are amongst the first to see in the New Year!!

2015 bought mixed feelings for me... Some good, some bad, some beginnings and some endings, but most of all, it was press good in most parts! I managed to supply some photos for a project in NSW, I did a shoot of a heritage aircraft which flew for the first time in nearly 40 years (and an article on it as well) and I am waiting for the magazine to arrive!!

But most importantly, friendships, I have this year had some of the best people around me, and I am grateful for this!

So what does 2016 hold? Well, I will be spending the first month or two with a very exciting moment in my life. It will take a little while to get done, but it is 'time' to do it now. Also, this year I will be looking at a replacement for the old Suzuki, it is still a fine car and does what its asked of, but it is just at the point of a few noises here and there... I don't know yet, but it will be the second 'big event' of the year!

So what ever it is you have planned for 2016, I hope that it brings you much joy and happiness!!

Hoo roo for now...
