questions and answers

Where have I been?

Good question.

Busy with work [it's assessment time] and wedding preparations. Then it occurred to me that Christmas was rapidly approaching. Oh my!

I've been so tired I didn't knit for a whole week. Not one stitch. I didn't even look at knitting books though I did read some blogs. Today Bloglines tells me I have 26 unread feeds, so that's not too bad.

On Thursday I was so exhausted that I went to bed at 9:30pm [early for me] and slept until 8:30 Friday morning - eleven glorious hours. Thank God for days off!!

But, more than that, I got distracted by investing in property. DD gave me some back issues of Australian Property Investor that she picked up at the Home Buyers' Expo. I have been interested in this subject for a long time but WM is very reluctant. Reading the mags got me all inspired again - it's a good time because it's a buyers market, interest rates are falling, rental rates are high and vacancies are low. But can we afford it? And would WM want to?


  1. Be sure it is what you want and go for it--moving is not for the faint of heart!

  2. Life is short! Go with your gut!

  3. It sounds like your sleep bank needed a serious deposit. 11 hours sleep sounds absolutely wonderful.

  4. I know people who find it quite lucrative, property investment. I'm not sure because I've not really explored it, but maybe it's the right thing for you?

    Not knitting for a whole week is just incomprehensible!

  5. That is a tough question. We've been asking ourselves that, but I'm not sure we can swing it. Good luck!
