    We're hoping to sell up and downsize. That way I have the option of instant retirement. Staying on the South Coast but moving towards Hayling Island to be closer to the water.

    That means lots of projects to get the house into shape,. Clear the workshop and cellar, refurb the pool, repoint the patio etc. I did a bricklaying course last year so doing all the work myself.

    How much does it cost to learn bricklaying? Did you finish the course feeling totally confident you could knock out a solid wall?

    I tried to get some tradespeople earlier in the year and it was an absolute nightmare to find anyone, and when I finally found one I got charged an insane amount for something I could have done myself with a pair of ladders and a quick scope of youtube, so I want to learn to be able to do more stuff myself...

    Get Plan B back to a tickover, so I can stop spending every non-work moment on it. Hope that I can continue to, one way or another, make the same money and lifestyle in IT this year.

    But, beyond that and in all seriousness, I'm aiming for a quieter year and more me and family time - more fitness, more trips away, more down time basically. Had a crazy busy 2019 between work and personal projects.

    That and fix my migraines so I can get my pilots license back.

    Not gonna lie, I've just about given up on the bricklaying stage of my extension project. Quite enjoyed doing the footings (in engineering brick), but I switched to the block work and instantly started hating it. Think I'm gonna get a builder to bring her up to roof height and then take it from there. Not exactly a fun time of year for it, anyway.

    I got this far off the back of a 4 day, £400 course:

    Imgur: The magic of the Internet

    There's better out there, but also far worse once you start paying attention! Building Inspector seemed quite impressed and all of the concrete people kept saying "Yeah, but why isn't your builder here"
