I am off work for 21 days!
So I am now on my two weeks annual leave, which actually amounts to 21 days off work with the way my shifts have worked out.
I have a few things planned. I was at mums today to deal with some visitors she had coming, I plan on going to Costco and using my fancy new American express card tomorrow, I then have a few days with not much planned before going to the safari park next Wednesday.
I have been promising mum for the last few years I would take her but its just not practical with her lack of mobility. However she was finally talked into getting a wheelchair and it arrives on Tuesday so there is no stopping us. We are going to take mum and her friend that does her cleaning and shopping along with her almost 2 year old which should be all sorts of fun.
I plan to spend a lot of time sorting out some mundane things like our finances. I did a reshuffle a few months ago and got a loan out to pay the cards off stuff like that. At the same time I also opened a joint account for us, one that pays cashback on certain things. However I have never gotten around to moving all the bills over to that account and sorting out how much we need to pay in, I must sort that out this week along with cancelling all the now paid off credit cards.
I am going to read a book and spend a lot of time writing and sorting out my promotion stuff. I have a lot of old twitter links I need to delete, I started a new list with just the ones I still want but I probably have some stuff on that list that I actually would still want to promote. I also need to add my Niume articles to the lists, I am doing pretty well there actually. So far I have found food to be my best paying category and one of my healthcare articles has not only been featured, but tweeted out by the site itself.
If you want to join me on Niume, feel free to kick start your earnings by joining through my referral https://niume.com/?ambassadorID=55785 if you sign up with an email address we will both get $1 when you submit your first post. Minimum payout there is only $10 so it wont take long to get there. I am now only writing here and on Niume, I very occasionally update my blog but I am losing heart for it if I am honest. I want to write somewhere that I don't need to work extraordinarily hard to see any results like hubpages where I need to borderline design my own webpage every time I want to write something and I earn next to nothing for my time. I want to concentrate my efforts here because I love it here so much, but I also want somewhere that I can bring in some money. The combination of here and Niume will do that for me I hope.
