Early Retirement: Boring

“Doubtless nobody’s noticed, but my blogging output has dropped off a bit. Just the normal fading of initial enthusiasm? Somewhat, but mostly, it’s because I’ve been busy at work

Clearly I have a bit of explaining to do. As a proponent of the idle rich lifestyle, what do I think I’m doing getting a job? How did this happen anyway? 

I’m fairly sure that when I was saving hard in my 20’s I had the vague idea that my future multi-millionaire self would be spending his days lounging around on his private sun-bleached Caribbean island draped in nubile dusky maidens, or perhaps heli-skiing with super-models in the Alps. What wasn’t in mind: doing the grocery shop, popping some washing on, un-packing the dish-washer, and then picking my daughter up from hockey club. Sure – these are all things that need doing, but they aren’t very exciting, are they? This is more house-husband than super-rich. “
