The year we have left was not what one may call a terrific year, except for my pandemic superannuation investment fund. My superannuation fund balance increased by twice the amount of money I took out to live on and I am not a cheap person. Long may pandemic profit last.
But still, I think I need to call one of those interstate shock jock radio stations and complain that while I am a self funded retiree, I am a person on a fixed income and prices keep rising.
International travel was out of the question in 2021. We managed one interstate holiday, as our own state went into lock down when we returned.
We had a short holiday in Echuca in March. We visited and stayed in Sydney for a week or so in May and Victor was a great travel host.
We stayed a few nights in Lorne in May, later in Torquay and a few nights in Queenscliff a month or so ago.
We had quite a number of family get togethers, and hosted a niece and great nieces here.
We even had a couple of gay old nights out at venues at some points. We were home early. Given the circumstances and our lockdown times, that wasn't too bad.
Now I must contact Channel 7 commercial tv news. Temps, Friday 38, Saturday 37, Sunday 28, Monday 21 does not a heat wave make and it was absurd to suggest we are in a heat wave.
I wish you all the very best for 2022. Happy New Year.
NB Off to a bad start on the first day of the year. I had the publishing time wrong for this post.
