I think some of my friends and family may be having a little difficulty relating to the new Sydney. That is, Sydney on a budget. To be fair, I've never really been on one before. I can see how disorienting this might be for those that know me. I have drafted something in the past I called a budget, but it really was more akin to fantasy. I put numbers on a spreadsheet and proclaimed them to be a true reflection of our expenditures. Having never actually compared them to reality, it could hardly be asserted that we actually lived within said budget.
