True! Unless your super fund decides to lose it all by buying up bad debt...

I'm alright at saving but unfortunately the cost of living in Sydney is ridiculous at the moment so I can barely save at all. On the good chance that I won't have enough to retire on before I'm at least 65, even with mandatory employer super contributions, I'm ensuring that I stick by the rule "love your job, and you'll never work a day in your life". Doesn't hurt that I love pretty much any job I do, so long as I have a decent boss

Well, you have a great attitude and that will carry you far.

When payday comes, pay yourself first. I don't care if it's five dollars, save something. Understand you're paying yourself.

It isn't about how much money you make, it's what you do with it.

Wealthy people don't become that way by spending everything they make. You'd be surprised at how much money some people who make almost nothing can save.

It does, however, take some self discipline.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Sorry for not updating guys.. I've been so burned out of this forum lately.

Sky is doing well, he's wearing shoes now and sacked the old farrier again.... have a new one that knows what he's doing.

Got my friend some fuzzy reins.

Work is going good; working lots and hanging out lots as well.

But yeah being on here isn't liberating anymore.. I find myself frustrated with people being overly complicated and the same questions over and over again. Maybe because I wish I had Sky with me instead of being so far away and disconnected, ya know?

Either way hope you're all well.

They make fuzzy reins I must have some.

I can totally understand being tired of the forum, especially when Sky isn't with you. Hope you continue to update us, though.

Yes I even have a picture of them on Sky!

The site/gal that sends them has a FB page: https://www.facebook.com/FuzzyReins

They're awesome! I got splits since Sky is a big ol goof and my friend likes splits :)

It is definitely taking all of my time, but I'm learning so much and the money is fantastic! I truly hope that by the end of the contract I'll have enough to kick start my life on my own with Skyness with me :)

Still no riding.. been 6 months... gotta check my "budget" as I have to pay all of Sky's bills (he's had a few this year) so I know what's left over!

Hope you're all doing fab!

So I had a riding lesson today! It went well and I have a few things I really need to work on. No stirrup riding next week. We walked, trotted tons, and then she put me on the lunge line and I cantered.. all while it was blewing 80mph wind outside!

Haha when I started riding again after Chippy had been sick it was constant leg and back pain. It'll go away soon though!
