After giving our trip to the USA the big raspberry this year, we really want to try to get there in 2019 as well. Maybe around October/Nov.
The dollar value will play a part, as i'd really like to bring back some American iron from the trip.
Would kill to bring in 2 or 3 classics from the 50's and 60's
Gotta get Country Lane Classic Cars to fly and be successful.
Would love to turn over around 25 cars a year.
Do some work on the place we're in now. Eight years of renting took its toll in wear and tear.

If the market kicks a bit in Tin Can, we may sell that in 2019.... might not too.
I'm keen to see my dear old Mum hit 96 in August.
The wife kicks off in a new job here on Jan 9th.

That's about it I think.....  ???

Up until a month ago it was going to be same old work school holiday trip somewhere.

It all changed with a phone call from a company that is a supplier to my company in the supply of Bus bodies 4 weeks ago. "What do I have to do to get you to work for me?" was the first question. I provided a response that was not only met but given some more. As a result I start as the National Contracts manager for a top 3 company in the industry Jan 21.

Holiday plans will have to be reset but this is something I worked towards when doing my Masters in Management from 2014-17 after 23 years as an aircraft Engineer for Qantas.

Apart from that I am going to do a off road course so i can take the FJ where it loves to go.

I plan to just keep my work life balance as it is.
I make decent money, I get 9 weeks per year off ( 4 weeks free and 5 weeks I pay for) that I can take darn near whenever I want with little notice before hand. Which is great with my Misses being semi retired and can she take as much time off whenever she wants.
And my job isn’t overly physical.

The only time I really wear a watch is when I need to get dressed up for special occasions or when I need people to think I'm kinda smart and can tell time on a watch with hands, other than that the good lady tells me when I need to be somewhere and gives me plenty of warning

rarely bother with lotto anymore.. poor mans dream, fools game... more players pays more than they get back than winners.
Told the bloke at the local not to get excited (which he does for $10.00) unless its 5 figures.

that's my thinking exactly...

but over the last 12 months... we're actually around $40 in front. We bought the very first ticket and then only ever spend winnings from the "account" on new tickets.

It's a bit of a laugh really. We don't take it serious. But it's fun...

Thinking of retiring. Had a shoulder reconstruction done last September, so resigned from job of only 4 months as when I had the other one done 13 years ago I was off work for 17 weeks and didnt think it was fair for the company to keep my job open.
Then wife had hip replacement 6 weeks ago so been looking after her since. Getting used to sitting around so might have to make it more permanent.
So hope next year is better health wise and as far as working might have to look at casual. Not many full time jobs going for a pushing 60 Industrial electrician over here in Perth. If I can get a few weeks work every couple of months that will suit me.

Forgot to add I am going to go hard in the PaddleNSW Ocean Ski Harbour Series, i won the short course (7-10km) title for 40-49 Men this year and am going to step up to the long course (14km) in 2019 and play with the big guns (read former ironmen). Training 2-3 mornings a week on Botany Bay before work with a squad of elite paddlers.
