I would never be able to downsize to a place like this even if I wanted to. It costs way more than my three bed semi-detached.
My house needs work doing to it, because I haven't spent much on it since I have been here, so I would have to price it accordingly if I were to sell it. The price I would get wouldn't be enough to buy something smaller, like a bungalow.
I could sell, then find somewhere to rent, but that would be a bit of a shock knowing what the rents are like these days. My pension would not cover the cost of renting, so the money from selling would have to subsidize my living costs and wouldn't last forever.
There is no urgency to make a decision, so for the time being I will stay here and enjoy cheap living. And while I am fit and able will enjoy my freedom before I have to move into a prison.
Thanks for popping in. Enjoy your weekend. Toodle pip. ilona
