Did you know that, on average, women retire with less superannuation than men? I know, I booed as well. If you weren't already aware of that fact, it may not come as a surprise to you considering the gender pay gap and all - boo again. We also tend to live longer than men so we actually require more funds to get us through our retirement years. There is some good new coming though, I promise. I can't close the gender pay gap - I really wish I could, but I can tell you about Super Rewards.
I know we are still in October but Christmas is a mere few weeks away and December is going roll around faster that you can say 'pass the wine'. I love Christmas but what I don't love is all the stress that comes along with it - empty bank accounts, crowded shopping centres and don't even get me started on the family feuds! But, all that aside, there are still things for us grown ups to get excited about when it comes to the festive season and topping that list are the Adult Advent Calendars. You know the ones I'm talking about - the ones that let you count down the days to Christmas with booze. Here are some of the best ones I've come across, do yourself a favour and treat yourself. You won't regret it - unless of course you drink them all on December 1st.
A few months back I posted my 'Wine vs Whine List'. It was basically a list of all the wines I love, which I could totally add to now, along with all the things I do not love. At the top of my 'Whine List' was (and still is) cooking. I probably should amend it to dinnertime in general. I use to love dinnertime. I love food - I just don't like cooking it and I really hate feeding my kids. And I don't mean that in a 'call the authorities, this woman wants to see her kids starve' kinda way, I mean it's not an enjoyable experience. They are the fussiest eaters on the face of the planet. Tiny Whiny #1, she's not so bad. She will eat most things, nothing green though, no spaghetti and don't even get me started on her dislike of carrots - she quite happily foregoes dessert just so that she can avoid eating a single slice of carrot. Like, seriously? Just eat the damn carrot! Tiny Whiny #2 is basically the exact opposite. Likes almost zero proper meal foods except spaghetti and could eat carrots all day long. Perfect!
Wining and whining my way through life.
