The year draws to a close …

Hopefully, with a bang, while ushering a new year.

What can I say? It has been eventful. Full of ups and downs, we have all experienced all forms of extremes this year.

The roller coaster ride of the share market has been nothing short of educational. We saw petrol prices bubbling higher and higher before sinking to close to a dollar. We experienced the joy of a strong Australian dollar and now lives with a more humble one. The closure of ABC childcare are still sending shockwaves through families, but we do have a new Prime Minister and there will be a new President of the USA. The weather … it has been a cool start to summer, will the drought be coming to an end?

So, what can we look forward to? Higher prices? Better and more funding for our health and education sectors? Higher unemployment? Lower interest rate? Lower house prices? Higher rents? Who knows!

We can only look forward and deal with what the new year will bring.

I wish everyone a Happy New Year!

    I’m just looking at further reduction of interest rates. It’s going very well so far for most people, but not enough. It’s a win/lose situation for Aussies: it’s bloody expensive to go overseas now, but within our shores mortgage is actually a joy to pay off.
