Well you’ve found it and you’re reading it, so I guess I’d better explain. Yes, I know the blog has a cheesy, cliché title, but that’s what someone said when I told them my plans, and it made me smile. So I’m going with it.
There are clues in the blog title and the website/domain name. Something to do with holidays, cottages, the West Country, running away, lifestyle you say? I know what you’re thinking – that sounds dull – I’ll find something more interesting.
Can’t say I blame you but stick around for a little while longer and I’ll fill in the gaps.
Here’s the background:
After 20 years in the big corporate world and the last 10 years running my own business (with big corporates as clients) I’ve decided to step away from the horrors of that world and enter the unknown; I’m buying a property in the West Country which has a house to live in and some cottages attached to rent out to holidaymakers.
I’m right at the start of the process and avidly reading all I can about that sort of business, greatly helped I must say by a really good resource called Lay My Hat. I know roughly where I want to buy and what sort of property I’m looking for. Now all I need to do is find it.
Over the coming months I’ll update this blog from time to time with things that I’ve found interesting or amusing. I hope you’ll enjoy it.
Oh yes, nearly forgot about the website that this blog is attached to. Nothing much to see there as I write this but eventually it will become the website for the new business. Over the coming weeks I’ll be putting together generic (but useful I hope) content about the area I’m planning to buy in and live in. Then it will grow from there.
