I started off as a YUPPY (young upwardly mobile professional) swanning around the world, working in Luxembourg, Australia, New Zealand and Ireland. Met the DOH (Darling Other Half) and enjoyed a few hedonistic years as DINKIES (Double Income No Kids Yet) when we had LOL!! Whoop whoop!
Then the KIPPERs arrived (Kids In Parents' Pockets Eroding Retirement Savings) and life became a SITCOM (Single Income, Two Children, Oppressive Mortgage). We couldn't afford an MPV and an SUV was out of the question.
If anyone asked it was always SNAFU (Situation Normal, All F----- Up), thank you very much, Our dreams of being GLAM (Greying, Leisured, Affluent, Married) were in shatters and looking forward to being a GOFER (Genial Old Farts Enjoying Retirement ) was a NONO (no! no!).
So WTG ( where to go) from here? OAU, I say (Onwards and Upwards), we're still FAF (Fit and Forty) after all, eagerly reading our NLP books (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and planning TNBT ( The Next Big Thing). BIO ( Bring it On!)
