super and a bus pass

i went into the city this morning for a meeting with my super fund.  it all went swimmingly and should be fairly hassle free.  the meeting only went for just over half an hour, not long at all.  i traveled into the city with my newish senior's card on the bus.  i hardly ever take the bus but thought why not?  coming home i stopped at the newsagent to get some exercise books for cookie and thought i'd put $5 on my card for future use.  the boy who served me made a mistake and put twenty dollars on my senior's card. now, i don't know about you but i hardly ever use the bus and when i do it's usually in the free time period.  so i had to go over to the office with him so that he could get a refund.  i didn't mind as i wasn't in a hurry to get home.  that was all sorted and i caught the bus home.  apparently he'd have to make up the difference out of his own pocket which i suppose is fair enough as it was his mistake but it would be a lot of money for him i expect.  it's all good.  cookie needed graph exercise books for school and my daughter couldn't find them anywhere.  trouble is they have two types, a largish graph and a much smaller one.  i don't know which one she needs so i got both.  enjoy your day wherever you are. 

the cookie monster.  don't tell her i said that, she doesn't like it :)


  1. I can keep a secret: I won't tell her you called her as cookie monster, although there are worse things to be called.

  2. I guess it comes naturally sometimes that name :)
    Never go on a bus, they don't depart from my area or go by very often at all. Most people take their cars to town or wherever down here. We are not used to public transport at all.

    1. we have a very good service here as i'm between two main roads. i sometimes get a bus to the market but the car is better if you have stuff to bring home. i've got one of those granny trolleys on wheels. very convenient :) but i don't know how difficult it would be to get them onto the bus.

  3. No rush in retirement. Glad all went well with the super. That is the hardest thing to get used to in retirement is not getting a fat pay cheque every fortnight but you get used t it.


thanks for visiting. :)
