I quit Greggs a few days ago and will start working for a pizza place on Friday as a full time delivery driver. Should be interesting, it will be good to have some full time work.
I’ve actually been coming up with a plan lately. A few years ago, my grandad moved into my house when it became clear he wasn’t able to live by himself, so mum converted the garage into a granny flat. Grandad died nearly 2 years ago now and the granny flat has just been used for storage.
The idea is to basically build a small interior wall in the hallway, so that the granny flat would actually be a proper flat. Replace the carpets and furniture, put in a new kitchen, convert the closet into a space for a washing machine. Thankfully the bathroom just needs a clean. And then put it up for rent.
Hopefully could be a good way to get some more income, but I would probably need a loan, at least £5,000. But if I pull it off with the help of people I know, it would be nice to not be living too close to the edge with just a minimum wage job to go by.
