Day before yesterday we got $750 of free christmas presents. Could have been over $1000 but I chose not too. How do you ask?

For the aussie readers only, I went to a Strathfield Mobile phone shop and contracted my wife's existing phone account for 24 months to the same price plan she was already on - with better options-got her a new handset, the Nokia 6300 for free, and then spent the $300 of free store credit on various Christmas presents. Not describing them here due to some of the readers of this blog going to be receiving them!

I also upgraded my phone to a Nokia N81, but as this was a more expensive handset I didn't qualify for the free $300 of store credit. The phone was free and just meant resigning my existing account on the same plan for another 24 months. Not like I was going to change it anyway!

The rest of the presents I can't help you repeat. I have been contracting to a agency for some of this year. In addition I placed one of my staff in a contract with them also. For this I received points in their contractor's club. I cashed in those points for $200 of book vouchers form a local store, a biomass body scale and some baskets of fudge - for more Christmas presents.

I am claiming the new phone for Jude as my Spouse 2.0 contribution.

Jude takes lots of phone calls from me asking me to do this or that for me - especially while I am out on the road. She is defintiely the best secretary I have ever had! I hope she enjoys the new phone. And her new website when I finish it for her...
