I live in Country Queensland, Australia on 5 lovely acres - full of parrots and other birds, and kangaroos and lizards and snakes.
Like everyone at the moment, I'm having to watch my money very carefully, but thankfully have always been thrifty. However, I'm not at all averse to learning everything I can as I'm on an Aged Pension, and it doesn't go too far.
I read a lot, shop fortnightly since the nearest town is getting on for 50 miles away, listen to music and watch DVD's. I'm an old hippie from the sixties and seventies, and still look like one. LOL
