  8. What training did you do today?

    You know when the training day isn't going to pan out. Set the alarm for 3.45am (well, that's what I thought). Got up and headed out to drive 55kms to Centennial Park for 60 km ride. The traffic is hell and I can't believe how busy it is this early. Starts pouring with rain 10 kms away. Then realise I set my alarm 1 hour late (4.45am instead of 3.45am). No I understand why the traffic is so bad on the M5. As I stuffed the time up, I decided to go straight to work and leave early to do an afternoon session. Leave about 3.30pm from the city and head out to Centennial. Got there. Go to pump up my tyres when I notice the front tyre has lost it's extender. Can't pump it up. No spares. Head home to Camden way but take 2 hours to get there. When home, the daughter has hurt her back and need to see the doctor. So it was go with the flow and take a rest day. It's called "no Training Thursday". FM
  9. Your best concert memorabilia........

    I'll try and track down a photo of me and Brian Mannix singing on stage together. For those who don't know him, he was the lead singer of the Uncanny X-Men. FM
  10. The Mental Health thread

    There is nothing like catching up with old friends. It is fuel for the soul. Three weeks ago, it was six of us in the Gold Coast. Today it was farewelling someone from work with 44 years in the place. He was my boss from 1985 -1988 but have stayed friends since. A kiss from me to him and all the others that turned up. Feed the soul - enjoy your friends and memories. FM

  14. Household Budget

    Had a strict budget for the 1st 20 years of marriage but have waned the last 15 years. I do however, keep a balance of all assets (loans, shares, A/Cs, super etc) and we are always heading in the right direction every year. As I am looking at retiring from work in 2 years (i.e. stop what I am doing now and start doing other stuff), we are reintroducing a budget next year. This will allow us to get get a bit stricter and rid the housing loan. It will be tough as I manage the funds. We don't go out on spending sprees but we do but stuff occasionally on a whim. We built a new home just under 3 years ago so it should be OK for a long while. Daughter is still at home (27) and son is married with his own place. Not much outgo on that front. I have already done a budget for retiring. It is a "want" value rather than a "need" value. It's the way we want to live. FM
