mortgage, super, gardens and headaches...

September 13th, 2012 at 04:45 am


Yesterday I spent most of the day looking at my superannuation, and in Australia its much different to your American systems.

Organising for everything to be put into one super fund so as to maximise earnings from here on in. I havent got a lot of super at this stage, so did a simulated calculator and it works out how much you should be able to save, based on current age, total in super account and annual income.

If I can manage what I worked out yesterday, whilst working part time hours, and contributing just $300 a year, and a one off payment sometimes in my 50s, Ill own my house outright and have some super funds and be entitled to a part pension. I think I can live with this.. as this is just the low end of the deal.. If I work hard, I mite be able to save more.. heres hoping. Do still want a life too, hence not working my butt into the ground.

Ive had a sore shoulder for the past few days and now today ive got a nasty headache.. grr. Used to suffer from headaches all the time but havent been having many for a long time, so now it really affects me.

On the vegie garden front, my peas have taken a battering from the wind, but my cabbage, brocolli and cauli seedlings are growing well.. the capsicums are finally up but tiny and my tomatoes are taking their time but getting there..

I have seedlings!

I've been saving hard since i last posted.. nothing's changed in that department.

So just resting, taking it easy and watching the Olympics..Go Aussies!

feelin really tired

June 15th, 2008 at 10:07 am

Just sleeping all the time the last couple of weeks, and always feeling tired, no matter how much sleep i get at night and whether i work or not. tho i must admit when i have sleepovers at work or 11 hour shifts I do end up much more tired than usual.

I have been suffering from headaches a lot lately and its been really hard to work, look after my DD 6 yr old and run a house.
so just gonna have to listen to my body for a while and rest more wen i need to.

will get to that pantry inventory sometime.

May 20th, 2008 at 12:05 am

Can't be bothered with a proper pantry inventory, so will just go looking for appropriate food for dinner in my house.

I think i mite get out a frozen chicken and we'll have a roast for dinner.

I dont have to work for the next two days, but im still very busy. I have a few jobs to do in town, and my dad is coming over to help me with my lawns now we got my mower fixed up.. it was on warranty, so cost me nothing.

Im also tidying my house and trying to make it safe for a toddler, a bigger job than i thought..lol.
Tonight my niece is coming over to stay the night and for dinner. we have to pick her up after she finishes Uni.

My bf is also coming over to stay the ngiht after tea as he is going to the gym first before coming over.

Tomorro i have my sister in law coming over to visit with her new baby (my nephew whom I haven't yet met), hence the reason for the toddler proofing..

busy day for me and hardly any time for a rest...bugger as i need it too, im really tired. well maybe tomorro arvo..lol
