A short update!

Big things have been happening! And now we are much further along towards our Big Move. So I will be updating more often and not neglecting his blog as much. I will also be occasionally waffling on about non Big Move related topics!

So: this is where we are now …….

We have sold our business. I am currently working 3 days a week for the new owners and will do so until at least the end of January. So far, it’s going great! I was worried how I would manage working with other people again, as it’s only been me, Dave and the dogs for the last 7 years!!! But Jaine & Lorna are lovely, we are getting on great, and all is going swimmingly. Having Mondays and Fridays off work is not awful either πŸ™‚

We have been back up to Scotland for a week of house hunting and have narrowed down our area to Wigtownshire, probably in The Machars close to Port William. We found 3 houses we really liked and are trying to decide between them with a view to making an offer soon. More on that later!

We have continued to sort through our clutter and downsize our possessions and Dave is now working on our house including putting in a new bathroom and various other jobs that need doing. We want it to be in tip top shape ready to put on the market – either for rental or sale – in January.

So that’s where we are! More details to follow soon!

    Yippee! An update at last! I can’t wait to hear what happens next and know for sure that this blog will be busying up as soon as you get up here to Scotland. I vote you join us in the Frugal Living stakes – nothing fancy, but always fun. πŸ™‚

    Good luck with all your impending decisions and may the best house win! πŸ™‚

    Still wavering! Lol! Definitely up for a frugal challenge. Have been reviewing our current budget (of course I have one! I’m an accountant!) and it needs reducing! I want to know how you frugal types get your grocery bills so low. We spend about Β£80 per week at tesco. That included toiletries, washing powder, etc etc but still seems FAR too high for two people! I expect it to reduce once we move and start growing our own veg etc but still, getting it down to under Β£30 per week seems a mammoth task. Point me in the direction of some tips on the frugaldom forum please!
