random nonsense from the inner recesses of what for me is a brain, to others a big empty space
Ok, so similar to the "I believe" entry I have decided to come up with list of what I want from life.
1) I want the bookshop I mentioned in previous entries
2) I want to find a woman to share the rest of my life with
3) I want to be a father
4) I want to retire to Crail
#1 will happen - the store will open, how long it stays open though is anyones guess
So, realised has been a while since I last blogged. Problem is I dont really have anything meaningful or relevant to say - but I decided you lot know that has never stopped me rambling on in the past so it wont stop me now either.

Ok, so some of you were probably reading the grand plan entry thinking "yeah, nice idea kilt, but how?"
This is the how.
The main benefit to my job currently is the profit sharing plan. I can take money out of it tax free for certain reasons (such as opening your own business), and I get a decent return from it. I was speaking to my boss today about my grand plan & how much he thought I could get from the profit sharing in the 10 years till the plan takes
