... but Boo!

As I'm told that my hours at job number 2 (the paying the rent and maybe the food and yay I still have at least one job job) are to be halved at the end of May.

Seven and a half hours a week is not going to keep me in any manner at all.

At least I have some casual work for the next few weeks to supplement the bank account, which is looking rather like Canberra Dam levels after almost 6 months of working 2 days a week and topping up my living expenses from the FO money.

I probably need to make some decisions sometime soon. No surprise really, as my horoscope for May says:

"The biggest news for you this month is the New Moon in your sign on May 24*. Make that your restart day - try to identify anything you want to change in your life by then. Make a list and leave it where you can see it..."

(*My birthday. I'll be sitting in a Youth Hostel in Noumea. Contemplating my navel, so it seems, and plotting ways to make enough money to live on. Hopefully while quaffing cheap French wine)

There could be far worse places to be contemplating your navel. When you return, may new opportunities open up for you.

p.s. it is quite cruel to leave us hanging with your furry exploits unexplained, or does everyone else but me understand?

And yah boo sucks to your employer. I'm really sorry to hear that, but the new moon in your sign on your birthday sounds auspicious - and Noumea a great place to see it. I hope it brings prosperity.

Furry exploits: the toile for the aforementioned possum costume (http://theshoppingsherpa.blogspot.com/2009/03/rest-of-my-weekend-gift-bags-square.html) followed by some fur hunting and gathering.

We still have the kangaroo, wombat, echidna, koala, jumbuck and frill neck lizard costumes to go...
