Phoned the Tax Office to confirm my Gapital Gains Tax had been recieved. Dull huh? Boring? certainly. But...
This peace of mind this has brought is massive. Paying tax might be unpleasant (especially the amount I had to pay) but its great to know its confirmed & I no longer owe it.
This completes my house sale. I feel I have been working as a clerk for the Estate Agent, Solicitor and Accountant over the last few months (instead of the other way around). They have all been paid too and I now have much needed funds to prop up my pension.
My son & his bride moved out of the house & into thier own in March this year. Its meant constant work for me ever since. In fact, its still not over because I have a tip run booked this afternoon to dispose of more stuff from that house.
Prior to all this, I lived in that house for 25 years. Took it on when I was first married. So am I back to caring for one house again? Not quite. Cherry's place needs a lot of work. This retirement malarky can be exhausting.
