The Joys of Not Working

Day 2 of my unemployed life ... and so far, I'm loving it :)

Day 1 was spent in my youngest's class and then chatting on-line with a friend. Some housework got done too and a job application was sent off, but these were incidental to the "good stuff".

Day 2 was mainly spent at the range. I was doing "Draw and Fire Two Shots" for a couple of hours this morning. Great fun. I then had a BBQ with a fellow-shooter before returning home to the mundane things. I also had a long and interesting discussion with a would-be shooter and possible employer.

Tomorrow, I'm helping a friend with some Excel and I have another two job applications to write. I need to also start packing as we (the family) fly to Melbourne on Friday morning for a holiday.

We're away for 12 days - 5 in Melbourne and 7 on the Gold Coast. Tonight was spent on the net booking Seaworld, Dreamworld and similar tickets. I'm really looking forward to the holiday before coming back and getting serious about job hunting.

Sounds like you are getting right into the "Lady of Leisure" lifestyle. not that I see much Leisure in there, but at least there has been lots of fun.
Hope you have an awesome holiday.
