G'day PCers Alright... well at the moment Im a stay at home dad and my posts are likely to contain spelling errors, possibly be short and occasionally disjointed. But sometimes I do get more than 5 minutes to have a good crack at making sense! I usually get time of an evening to bust out something that makes sense but during the day its short bursts to write things down to post before I forget. The "get it to it later" thing doesnt happen to well because I'll forget something awesome that was ticking away in my head (well i think so anyway)! Originally a westy but the last 5-6 years or so been working/travelling around NSW, Qld and now WA, apart from an 18 month stint in our IP to do a reno and have a baby (i'll be posting again at 2,3 and 4am trying to get Number 2 to sleep!). Previously I worked as an Engineer/Project Manager on wastewater plants and sewer mains (pipelines and rehab) for ~8 years. So if there are any sewer/water questions i'll likely be onto it like **** to a blanket! In between projects/jobs Ive been a dominos scooter boy, landscaper, council worker and brickies labourer to keep me busy while the mrs works (probably the best jobs ive had!). After working around we have learnt to jump at good opportunities and not let them pass, a big thing in society is to sit back and take the easy route but its more fun packing your stuff making it up as you go! People think we're crazy and we probably are but **** we have packed some stuff in the last few years and have learnt so much about ourselves. We know now what and where we want to go (not exactly, but key bits are there), and its not just being "dreamers" wanting the beach house and a bunch of materialistic stuff, we'll get the work/life balance so many employers crap on about. The IP story isnt anything super extravagant but we'll just say I've been studying for the last 10years Purchased at a peak and watched it do little for a long time wasn't very exciting but in the mean time I read heaps of mags and slowly worked out what it's all about. A few years ago got onto SS after "growing up" and started getting involved after feeling like I understood the jargon and could contribute something of value. Most recently Ive been hitting the mindset stuff pretty hard and it's really clicked for me, I just need time to read everything! So, the next purchases are on their way and we have a plan in motion. It's rough and ready to change at any moment but it will be fun!
