I made one resolution this new year. Clear all debt. Pay off personal loan, and cut up the credit card.
Today my van died.... As in "you need a new motor mate" died. "That'll come to about 5 grand mate." S**t. I won't go into the gory mechanical details but lets just say I was driving along and the engine got a "death rattle", very loudly and suddenly.
Ah well. I guess I'll be getting in a lot more training on the bike now... so that's good.
(ps. Anyone got a good low mileage 2.8L Toyota diesel engine for sale?)
