We are glad to have you, but understand that you want to be home too.
Get the OT while you can, you'll be wanting something from eBay eventually. :D

lmao i have had e-bay 15 yrs & bought 3 items off it just to see how it worked

 

3 x  oo,ho model train loco's 

 

Pretty sad i suppose 

 

And as for the work bit after the financial yr June 30th is gone i get approx a week off  ,

 

then have to travel all the way across the city to follow the kerbside for scrap 

 

normally i do about 2 tonne a week + non ferrous but at the moment i'm clocking 6 + tonne a week with out the non ferrous i'm getting .

 

last week in 4 & 1/2 days got over 1 tonne of non ferrous for storage 

 

trying to get the kitty built up some , got 10 push lawn mowers this week so far ,to day is Wednesday night , still got to Sunday to

see how many i get for the week lol

love going out bush it gives me time to reflect & think whats doing in my life & around me

 

it's so quiet out there except for regular traffic but that's nothing ,far enough away not to be a problem

 

But most importantly i get to toy fiddle with my Machines

so time to finish cashing some scrap out & clean up here in the house yard

 

already cashed 5 & 1/4 tonne of light steel in 3 & 1/2 days fri to mon 

 

load my trailers & truck & bolt for the bush for a couple of weeks or more 

 

got pains all down my left leg & back again so time for some R&R i reckon
