Monday Male loves simple life with family, gym and work

GYM, family and work. It's a simple and straightforward life but it satisfies long-term Gladstone resident Mark Howard.

The family man is a delivery driver for QH20 bottled water, and has been for the past year following a courier job with Australia Post for the previous six years.

"You're out and about, just driving mainly," he said. "You suit yourself."

The 48-year-old has never lived anywhere else and has brought up his two daughters and two sons here with his wife in West Gladstone.

"(It used to be) just a lot smaller," he said.

"Everybody knew everybody, whereas now it's just changed, obviously a bigger population."
