Kids and work
Well where do I start? First my 19 yo daughter has given up her tertiary course and is part time waitressing at the local pub. If it was up to me I would give her the following options -1 Move out, - 2 Get a full time job or 3 go back to study. Unfortunately she just stays at her mothers place and does what she wants. I don't understand it, I started work at 16 and have never stopped, it can't be good for the soul to live like she does. I just hope the other kids do more with their lives. The rest of the brood are all doing normal things for their stage in life, I know that they will probably disappoint me but not working and studying is a recipe for relying on other people to support you. At the moment I working 60 hours plus a week, I am hopeful that it will reduce soon and things will get back to normal. The problem is that the business is going very well at the moment we now have 70 employees because of this rapid expansion we need to organise ourselves better. We are doing this but it takes time and money. Next week it's off to Falls Creek for a couple of days.
