Went in there and did some exercise after having just been on a 20-kilometre bike ride.
Well I have to do something to get rid of the four kilos I gained through drinking 135 pints of Guinness during my UK trip.:)

Over the last few days I have sold a few things, on Marketplace and bought a few things online, all for jobs to be done on the shed (nothing from Marketplace) but I did add a few things to my watchlist on MP.
Put a few dollars aside for your health perhaps? #cpap

Not in the workshop, but spent yesterday fencing a horse paddock at my daughter's property.

Haha, yes. But at around $2.5k, $150 of Marketplace sales won't even scratch the surface. But yes I am onto it. Although CPAP is only going to help 40% of my problems. Stress is my biggest issue keeping me awake at night. I actually sleep a lot better on weekends and days off work. I only got maybe 4hrs last night and it was primarily due to stress.

I can’t help on the stress part as that’s my biggest sleep issue as well

Sell $150 worth of stuff each week and you’ll have your CPAP in 4 months.

I suspect that it might be something that could improve your life. If you get good and restful sleep, you’ll probably find yourself functioning better during the day. And, who knows, you might also pick up some other health benefits once you get the sleep issues sorted?

Maybe, but my sleep has been terrible for close on 40 years. I'm doubtful I had sleep apnea in my teens.

Plus I'm running out of things to sell. And also as I don't really have any friends. The thing that helps my mental health the most is spending time working in the shed on projects. Without that my mental health would deteriorate no matter how much sleep I get. While getting better sleep would help, leaving my job and working in a servo selling petrol and drinks would have greater benefits than a machine will. After nearly 25 years in community services I have reached a point where I am feeling compassion fatigue. The solution is to get out of community services altogether, which I hope to in the next two years.
