Money – need money.
Apparently budgeting, like dieting, requires you to do more than say you are doing it – you actually have to do it as well !
So, in a killing 2 birds with 1 stone style-ee, I think I rigorous session on ebay should raise some extra funds, as well as clearing some of the old games / books / videos out of my folks place, for a fresh layer of crap to sit on top of.
Not sure I want to do a complete “all my life for sale” job, but anything that has gathered dust for 10 years is probably only worth keeping if dust replaces sterling as currency (In which case I will just haul all my old junk down the travel agents and blow in there direction…)
Told parents – tick.
Ordered iPod – tick.
Sorting house move – tick.
Not going too badly then. Just gotta farm off some furniture to family and friends, and sort out that all important route and ticket.
Gonna make a deadline of 31st March to sort those things out… after which I’ll do some sums and see how much cash I got knockin’ about !
Sorry about the incredible dullness off all this – it’s basically a progress tracker for me at the moment.
Besides, no-one is supposed to be reading this for a couple of months yet ! Then I promise more stories of (mis)adventure.
As your here, I gift you my quality link de la jour to be more entertaining than I.
Au reviour, T
No real progress so far – how lame. Need to sort out :
- A route
- A round-the-world ticket
- Getting enough cash together
- Sorting out some job thing in Oz
- An iPod full of ‘choons to keep me sane
- Moving out of the house I’m in right now
- Telling my folks there getting a whole load of crap deposited back home quite soon
Better “phone home”…
