After a cold, wet, windy and frustrating business trip to London last week, I got to come back home to my loving family. And who doesn’t want to give a stinking, stressed and near psychotic Gentleman a great big hug? Continue reading “How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Calm”
Despite it not having been around only a few years ago, “Black Friday” is everywhere I look online and my email has been bombed by countless emails – you can’t help but notice it and if the pundits are correct, we’ll collectively be getting into more debt than ever to buy stuff we don’t need for people we don’t like.

Just a very quick update:
So far AirBnB is going well. We’ve had a number of requests and had to decline people who wanted to stay. A family wanted to stay for a week! Which is a bit much. We have a pair of French students staying here and another student coming next week as well. The AirBnB website is not perfect but it’s easy to get your money out and easy to use once you are used to it.
We are not taking the piss with our prices and we are listed at around £30 a night at the moment. I don’t intend to run a hotel, so I think that we can up prices a bit to reduce demand but keep the net profit high. It seems like easy money. 🙂
It’s a funny feeling to have paying guests. My wife and I have both hosted/surfed with couchsurfing but this is a different relationship and more of a commercial relationship.
So far so good.
