    To be fair, I’m more of a fair weather walker too, so I’m just scoping out walking gear (via the charity shops obvs!!) so probably won’t start til spring. I’ve been watching a new life in Greece, and that really appeals to me, I’m not a massive fan on the cold! I’m a bit older than you, but would love to retire when I’m 55, or at least work part time and have a bit more of a work life balance! 

    Just found the blog now so will take a look. All of my spare money is going into my retirement pot. So I’m a bit like you, thinking do I really need it, or is it a want.....and if I don’t buy it I can put in towards my retirement. Some of my friends think I’m crazy living so frugally, but I know it will be worth it in the end.

    Another update today.  One of the receipt apps I downloaded was ZipZero.  I had £1.45 on there but it asked for a sort code and account number for a biller, and I couldn't find one anywhere on any bill!  So I finally called my broadband provider and got theirs, so now I should have £1.45 off next months bill.   Can't complain about free money! at least i thik I will - do DD's reduce if there is extra credit on the account?
    PS.  Someone asked before - ZipZero is the only receipt app I have found that will take my GWR rail ticket receipts, but at a round up to 1% cashback onto bills its always something :-). Shoppix did once but rejected them after that.
    Live the good life where you have been planted.
