Slow Time Again.
#1

Summer is in full swing down south and ive just gone to monthly cuts for most clients as even the dandelions have stopped shooting. I hope the rain stays away for awhile.

 

Been a good year again and looking forward to a nice break. Get back into painting the house and laying some floating floor and back into mucking about with the project ute for the next 6 weeks or so.

 

 

Had allot of expenses this year with getting married and a honeymoon and some great gigs. Already have to many expenses for this year. A trip to Arfa's playground in March and tickets booked for the Sheryl Crow, Mellisa Ethridge concert in Melbourne in April. Damn bills and costs are never ending arnt they? O well life is to be lived and we at least see the sun shine and real people every day. 

 

One down side to the slow down is ill be back to mowing thick, wet, long grass very soon.....I really hate thick wet long grass....this dry stuff the last 6 weeks has been really nice. Even had to clean out my air filters! 

 

Tossing up weather to change the name of the business this financial year as well....anybody done that and was it a headache?

 

The mowing life ant that bad.

As long as you keep the same mobile number, you shouldn't have to much trouble.

Been there done that, no loss of work, most of my customers didn't even notice and the ones that did, just checked to make sure it was still me doing the work.

I did, my bank just changed the business name. Took them about 5 minutes.

All I needed was my business registration and they were happy.

Good call - you want to keep those legs gorgeous for the marital bedroom - drive the missus wild!

 

Mine are all sandblasted to hell and it's caused me to suffer erectile dysfunction - that's what I tell her anyway.

Updated temps for Brisbane - 36 today 38 tomorrow - and the rain forecast has evaporated - I was thinking last week it's turning in to a dustbowl again here and looking forward to the possible showers/storms this weekend.
