Slowing Down Our Early Retirement

In January, I turned 31. To celebrate, I bought myself a birthday present.

I very rarely buy books anymore (preferring to visit the library) but for my birthday, I made an exception. I purchased Tanja Hester’s new book, Work Optional. For those who don’t know, Tanja is the author of Our Next Life, one of our favourite early retirement blogs. Continue reading

A Change in Our Early Retirement Date

As many of you may remember, back in September 2016, we committed to a roughly six year time frame to reach Early Retirement.

We haven’t changed that date, despite many things changing here at Adventures with Poopsie. We aren’t going to change that date now, but I did want to talk about why and also what has changed.

Travelling Closer to Home

As you will know if you’ve read our Where We’ve Travelled series, we like to travel.

Time and money are the only things that stop us from travelling more often. We only get four weeks of leave each year and, given we’re on the path to Early Retirement, we are trying to save as much as we can so can’t spend it all on travel. Continue reading

The Ups and Downs of Life

It has been a few months since we last posted here, with our August Life Update.

In that post, we updated our readers on a few things, particularly that we’d moved to Canberra and I had left my government employer after twelve years of working there. Continue reading

Life Update

Back in March, we placed the blog on hiatus.

Mainly due to our busy work schedules, plus a few changes we knew were coming, we just couldn’t keep up with our weekly posts. I knew this would be temporary and, instead of stressing myself out over getting posts out, decided to just take a break. Continue reading

Blog Hiatus

It is with sadness that I announce Adventures with Poopsie will be going on hiatus.

As many of you know, Poopsie and I have recently started new jobs which have proven to be exceptionally busy and taxing on our time. We have also had recent discussions that may see us redirecting our life plan, focusing more on what’s important to us.

As we go through this busy time and change, I can’t dedicate the time to the blog that I deem necessary.

I definitely plan to return to blogging but for now, a break is needed. I will still be using Twitter and occasionally checking in on Instagram, so feel free to stay in touch there if you like. Our email address also remains active.

I don’t want to put a timeframe on when I will return, as there’s much to figure out and likely to be a lot of change in the coming months. I will be back though!

Thank you for reading and I hope you will continue to do so when we return.
