Austerity measures.

I've had a happy weekend with MissG. We went to a show at a local theatre and then a drink with one of her friends, on Saturday. A lazy start to Sunday. With a visit in the afternoon to a "National Trust" house, just up the road from her, in the afternoon. We spoke alot about the future. The flat I rent is going to be sold. So I'm going to be looking for somewhere else to live. Which coincides with her plans to move at the beginning of next year. Well you can see where this is going. Because of her job the move will be towards her. So Tonbridge, Kent here I come.

The move will mean a big change work wise, for me. I'm self employed and establishing myself in a new area will no doubt be a slow process. Especially given the current economic climate.

However, as I said before. Work currently isn't great so a move now won't be such a disruption. I thought things through as I drove back from Kent and have decided to adopt some tough cost cutting exercises to try and reduce my debt as much as possible before the move. I'm not extravagant by any means but I don't keep a regular eye on my spending either. So attention to detail, tackling things early and making good use of what I have needs to be the order of the day.

Onwards and upwards in the pursuit of happyness :-)

  1. Have you got a website for your business Spanner? I used to advertise in a local free paper but it was expensive and i had to pass the costs on to customers. I put a website together using the GBBO (google them). You can get a free domain name, advice and free tools to make a website. If you have a quiet couple of days it is time well spent and costs nothing. Getting your website to rank well in search engines takes a bit of time and know how, but nothing you can't pick up. Those in the business like to keep ths a bit mystical so they can charge for it. I couldn't afford their fees so I had to learn how to do it myself... so it can't be that hard. If you google for a handyman in hastings i'm right there at the top now! I get enough business from the website and return custom to keep me going so it was well worth the investment in time. If I can help in any way, you know where I am. All the best, Med.
