Walk With Me

Summary

Castle and Kids earn more, save more and do more than other Aussie Achievers– but are less confident about the future. These married Australians, many with kids still at home, are somewhat anxious about their finances due to over-extending on mortgages and investments. So they have cut back on a few luxuries while watching their superfunds slowly increase. Few have university degrees, instead getting educated through technical or commercial colleges. Castle and Kids want crime, illegal immigration and, most of all, day to day living costs reduced.

Walk with Me

Deb’s got it into her head that we can’t get by another day without redoing the main bathroom. It’s always something. Last year it was a gazebo! Still, I joke about it, but I do quite like reading the paper in there on a Saturday morning. 

It’s an hour’s drive to work and back, so it’s nice to be able to come home to your own purpose-built castle. Well, mostly mine—some of it’s still the bank’s. We could have paid it off by now but we refinanced a couple of times to buy an investment property and start Deb’s catering business.

I’m looking forward to not being jumpy every time the RBA gets together. Not that we couldn’t afford the odd rise—we’ve done it before—but I’m at a point where I feel I shouldn’t have to cut back on anything. Not that Deb lets me order dessert any more anyway. But I’ve earned the odd holiday, whether here or OS.

It hasn’t always been easy, but Deb and I have worked hard, so why not enjoy it. The kids are going to be off soon (and probably to the city), so I want to make the most of having them around. We spend a fair bit of time together, whether it’s going to the footy or just hanging around watching TV.
