I guess that's right. But then I looked at my last year in London. I was making £10,000 to £15,000 more a year. That was for a company and I was working five days a week and I always had work to do at home too.
So I don't know. It seems like I should be making way more money now. For "fun" I did the first six months of what will be next year's tax return, and it's the same amount as this latest tax year.
It seems like I have more money. It's not like in London where I had to stay in a crappy flat because I couldn't afford anything better. And I was annoyed at how little I was making.
I spend money freely here and figure that I can spend as much money as I want for a flat.
But I looked at how money was in my account last year and it was almost the same amount as what I have now. I went on holiday and bought a new suit and there were other expenses but...I'm not really saving money.
I'm probably owed about £5000 in outstanding invoices. So there's that, I guess. Still...even if we add that to what I'm making, it wouldn't bring me up to London levels.
Well, whatever. I'm working like three days a week and can afford to live semi-decently. That's pretty good.
