So I got the next lot of financial hardship money out of my Super to survive whilst waiting on the NSW Housing priority list. Only did $5,000 this time as there's nothing big to pay for and we can use that money towards living. $3,900 after tax but the balance gets paid in my tax return next June.
I've been paying due bills and putting extra on them, put $100 each on David and I's Opal travel cards, and generally been spending money on groceries that we haven't been able to buy for a while. Like Band aids, proper mouthwash, decent shaver heads, pain creams for our back (strangely we both have sore backs at the same time, weird). Pretty bad when you have to draw money out of you super just to afford those things.
Other thing that had gone by the wayside was not having a toaster as it carked it months ago, and a small electric mixer for cooking (we eat just about everything at home) and the big fry pan. It slide off the stove by accident when I was washing up and the handle broke, making it too dangerous to use really. We got the toaster and mixer at Target for really cheap.
The fry pan I got today in the cookware bit at the Coles supermarket down the road. Tefal, which is a good brand and the non-stick won't promptly un-stick not long after using the thing. Got home and briefly read through the instructions bla.
And that's where the instructions were about birds in a kitchen. Far out. 😕
