A New Venture

How did we get to September already? What happened to the summer? This year is flying past at quite an alarming rate!

Earlier in the summer we had an unexpected visit from the council tax people who wanted to reevaluate our banding. This resulted in them classing our separate self-contained ‘annex’ as a separate dwelling and almost doubling our council tax bill!

To cover the cost we decided that the best plan would be to turn the annex into a holiday let. We contacted Sykes and set about preparing for guests.

This proved to be a much slower process than we had hoped as I had a full-time job and it turns out that babies really are a full-time-and-then-some job! And for every job we did we found two more that needed doing.

To simplify matters a couple of weeks ago, completely out of the blue, I was made redundant! This has meant that we have been able to really focus and get things done.

The Lodge @ Sunnyside

Last Friday the listing went live and we have already had two bookings. Why not check out The Lodge @ Sunnyside and let us know what you think. You can always get in touch directly if you would like to visit and we will give you a special rate if you mention the blog.

As soon as our wee tyrant lets me I will get some pics on here!
