    First day over 30 degrees here after winter. Working like a navvy to get extra done because they have forecast more rain again tomorrow. Fangin for a beer. Last job is a small one just around corner from home. I think may as well knock it over as it will be quick and easy.

    Half way through doing the edges run out of line...grumble...grumble...then have 2 feet to go run out of fuel...FARK ME. Refuel. Edging done. Grab the mower and 2 lines to go yep you guessed it out of fuel. Kicking myself because I knew I should have refueled it when I did they whippy but no she'll be right, FARKIN FARKIN BLOODY FUEL..glare at the blower...YOU WANT TO RUN OUT OF FARKIN FUEL TO YA BASTARD...can see its half full.... BETTER BLOODY NOT.

    Finish the job. Thank Christ for that. Serves me bloody right for trying to take short cuts. NOW WHERES ME BLOODY BEER
    Cheers

    In these busy days seems like I spend half my time either filling up or running out of petrol. Oh yeah and then the string runs out and then the blades need sharpening. No time to scratch arse.

    The thing that gets me is ,the day before I took a bigger load but it was mixed with treated pine and a few shrubs , weedmat and gravel that came out of the same garden, and it cost me $150. The 8 barrows was clean soil. It was even hallal certified ffs

    realised this morning l haven't done my tax I've done my own return for 35 years but the last few it has gotten harder to work out (deliberately by the ATO imho). After several frustrating hours with the new online portal, I rang a local tax agent and made an appointment - just hope l don't cop a late penalty

    The advantage of using an agent is that you have longer due date to do it so you should be right however on the flipside I suppose it costs more and you still have to double check it yourself.
