I’ve been spending time recharging my batteries, swimming in the morning doing about 9 laps of a 25-metre pool in the space of 30 minutes with an occasional gym session in the afternoon. I’ve cut back on processed food including sugar and finding a sense of calmness. Sundays I find myself reading books about being frugal, side hustles and how to find the work you desire. My preferred working environment with an employer is to do something that at the end of the day it doesn’t spill over into my personal life or the next working day. I intend to keep up this blog as an experimental ground, who is reading this and what do they find beneficial I wonder?
Consumer Habits – Household Services
There are mainly two household services that I make use of. Originally when I moved here I would mow the lawns and do the edging which proved difficult work for me not to mention the outlay for the equipment and running costs. I approached the real estate for a recommendation for a contractor who ended up charging $60 but then our neighbour put us on to a service only costing $30 (Stuart Gosling – Doo Doo Property Maintenance 0412 320 396), now I’m looking at getting rid of the noisy whipper snipper or line trimmer as they like to call them now.
The other aspect is carpet cleaning, I like to get this done at least every 12 months and I give Noddy a call from Brightaire Property Services 0412 587 944. He’s also one of the guys on air at night at Sunshine FM.
