IMPORTANT note about my web site and Joomla Extensions
In an attempt to better organise my life (HA!), I'm currently separating my personal and work sites. If you're looking for my Joomla Extensions, or anything related to my work for that matter, then head over to the new work site, here. (Yes, it's work in progress.. isn't it always?)

It seems like the end could be drawing near for Three Monkees and myself.
I've loved running the shop for the last 3+ years. It's been a lot of fun. I love the various conversations I have through the day.. it tends to flip from Movies to Music to Games to Motorbikes and anywhere in between. Unfortunately, there is one small group of people that just love to bring me down with their talk of piracy, illegaly downloaded movies, burning, copying etc etc, and I've finally gotten so worn down by them that I'm having a problem getting motivated.
I know I probably shouldn't let these people get to me, but it's hard to avoid it.
The other group is those who thing I am unjust in charging overdue fees. If I charged ridculous amounts, then sure enough, but I get a two or three copies of a movie, and these people come in on a cheap day ($4), hire a brand new movie on the first couple of days it's in, and then don't return it for many days. When I ask if they want to sort out the overdues, they whinge about how much it is... I only charge the amount that I've lost out on, it's not like I charge the full rate on cheap days etc. Keep it 3 days, I charge the $12. That's what I lost by them keeping it...I think that's pretty fair eh?
Rant, Rant Rah Rah!! It's pointless... but it makes me feel better! :^) Just ask me about Telstra and ANZ!!! B@st@rd5!!
Anyway.. I've also REALLY been missing my daughter. I was her main carer for her first three years, and I loved every moment of it.. I thought taking on the business would be good while she was at school, and I could still do some web work on the quiet days, but it's getting more and more of a wrench every day, paticularly when I feel like I'm losing the fantastic bond we had.
So 2 + 2 + 2 = 6 and with a party that was interested in taking the shop on, I started to look into selling. I should know within a week if they are going to proceed, if not.. there are going to be some pretty major changes ahead.
