The simple life most definitely isn't bad, in fact it's really good. It's everything I knew it would be.
I've been asked a few times what I do with myself, and to be honest at the moment I am just going from task to task, but in a slower more considered way. Still pottering through sorting out the Van, living day to day life and generally learning to slow things down a notch at a time.
No I don't have chickens to muck out, eggs to collect, fives acres to leave untended due to bad weather and internally stress over. I don't have a leaking three bedroom cottage to do the housework for, or not as the case may be. I don't do anything I don't want to do , and yes I do realise what a privilege that is.
Some folk have mentioned me being retired ... no you don't retire from being self employed when you own the company, instead you pace out the workload to suit any change of circumstances. I won't go into financials on this blog, maybe in the future but not now. But I am still a wage earner, I pay my own way. I own a company that pays me a salary, and although it's not much it is enough to support this way of life completely.
My income is low... but my outgoings are lower!
