Catch up

Long time no see! A lot has changed in my life since my last post.
The job that got me out of retail was a total dud. It was presented as a bookkeeping position but was in fact just data entry. I have never been so bored in my life!
I am not doing any bookkeeping work now, just the furniture shop. So still in retail.

The photos here are all of a gorgeous house in Adelaide. The house prices in Perth are so ridiculous that this same property here would be at the very least, a couple of million. It is $800k in Adelaide.

A lot of Perth people are fed up with how expensive everything is here now. It's not just housing, it is food, utilities - combine that with our weird trading hours and daylight saving issues. I wonder how many residents leave every year?

I am now studying for my Diploma of Accounting which I will hopefully have by mid 2011. Then I will finally be able to get out of retail for good! (until I open my own shop LOL!)


  1. It is so hard to get out of retail, Ive tried for 28 years!!
    It is amazing how the prices of homes have gone through the roof over there, I remember a few years ago, everyone was moving there for the cheaper homes...
    Are you thinking of moving again?
    Have a wonderful Xmas and New Year!

    I just discovered your lovely blog. I'm just new into blogging & have just finished off my own blog on fashion & interior design.
    I had a lot of fun putting it together. I would love your feedback on it if you've got a spare minute.
