There's no pleasing me.

Well my main grouse at the moment is having to pay taxes.

Doesnt make sense right?

Paying taxes mean that we have had income, which is a good thing. If not, how to be able to enjoy the life that we live.

Last year, I didnt pay any taxes. Why, becoz I had no taxable income. The business that we ran incurred a loss - I guess that was acceptable given the bad economic climate here at that time with many people losing jobs and companies cutting down on their spending. I was not happy. Coz for all the hard work that hubby put in, there was nothing to show for it.

This time round, business has been pretty brisk. But again I am not happy! Why? Becoz just looking at the tax returns that I have just completed there is going to be so much taxes that I have to pay!!

No profits = Unhappy me.

Profits = Also doesnt please me too much.

But I guess, this time round it's a good problem to have!

Yes, I am difficult to please. But isnt that human nature?

Honey, get what you mean, but hey at least you're making profits.

I'm not having an income, but I still pay miscellaneous tax too, how you like that? =P

I wish you lots of 'water' anyway!;)

Sorry Doc - for my husband's response you have to speak to THE MAN himself. This MY blog, so you only hear my views. But he is smiling from ear to ear about the profits!!
