Mr.VS and I have decided to spend the rest of our days back in England after twenty glorious years living in Thailand. We'll be leaving at the end of July next year, and would love to find someone to take over the rental of our house.
Hi VS and Parahandy, I'm putting this here to avoid cluttering up the Classifieds.Vital Spark wrote: ↑Sun Sep 24, 2017 10:32 pmYou've given me some good food for thought, and I feel more confident that we'll be able to slot back into UK/European culture. It's difficult to imagine what we'll miss until it's not there.
Suffolk - my home county is astronomically expensive, as most rentals are holiday lets. Scotland is considerably cheaper, but I could I put up with the Scottish weather? I've decided that I definitely need a house with a conservatory, so even when the weather's shitty I can feel like I'm outside.
Don't be daunted by your decision, I think you'll enjoy another challenge. Where will you relocate to? Scotland, Suffolk or somewhere in between?
Or a motor home...?
One positive that I'm sure you pair of petrolheads will appreciate is the thriving used car market. I'm on a relatively tight budget, but I feel quite restricted without wheels. I'd thought about buying a scooter, but it's a bit chilly for that. I've just bought a 14-year-old Mazda 2 Sport for £500. It's done a genuine 100k miles and has 12 months MOT. It's not the sexiest car on God's good earth, and I realise you wouldn't be seen dead in it, but my point is that there is plenty out there for under a grand. Insurance was a bit of a shock, mind - the cheapest I could get is just under £600 fully comp (which is generally not much more expensive than 3rd party, and sometimes cheaper...).
