So you know how I’m a blogger who also happens to be a banker (with a ‘b’)? Well in three weeks that will change.
We were driving home from the Gold Coast a week ago when Tracey said she wanted to talk to me about my quitting work at the bank altogether.
“Okay,” I said.
“I just think you can focus on your blog and the doing housework,” she said earnestly, building up her argument. “And I really need more time for editing.”
“I said okay,” I repeated.
“I thought you meant okay you’ll listen.”
“I meant okay I’ll quit.”
“Well, that was easy.”
“Exactly what I’m thinking,” I grinned.
We’ve been transitioning me for about a year from full time to 4 days to 3, and stocking up on geeky tees, as my wife’s photography business kicked up a notch and this blog has been consistently paying for itself, with a little beer money to boot.
So that’s it. In less than a month I will officially be a Stay At Home Dad (the capitals are apparently super important) because Tracey’s rather sensibly decided she wants me home all the time – I tell people as a sex slave, but she tells people it’s for housework and school runs.
I’m hoping there’s some middle ground involved.
Bring on the next super adventure, I say!
