    I've come into a lot of money today as my worker who is also one of my best mates inherited a lump sum and has bought the round that he does for me.

    This is something we agreed on 11 years ago when he first started working for me. He has also bought my second van and equipment

    I relieved that a bit of pressure has been taken away as the round that I do is every six weeks, but its taking me nearly seven and that's with a youngster with me.

    Anyway, as much as I'm pleased for Danny, and pleased with the substantial wedge that's in my account, I feel a bit torn. It took me over ten years to build two 6weekly rounds of proper work (no stopping the vans for one house etc), so I feel I've let my baby go.

    Anyway thought id post it as id like to hear your views

    Enjoy it mate. nothing to stop you doing it all over again, and it'll be a lot easier this time round if you wanted to.

    No chance! My mortgage ends in August plus I'm 50 this year, plus I carry a bit of timber now. The thought of building that lot up again would kill me
    I'm friendly with another windie who works the same areas as me, so any excess work I pick up now, he is buying off me.
    I'm trying to slow down, but busy beyond beleif

    Things happen for a reason Steve. You're knocking on :p, mortgage nearly paid, you've got a decent wedge and lost a bit of stress. Win win.

    I'm in the same kind of boat, we're thinking of downsizing our house and moving to the country. I keep picking up new work but to be honest I won't need anywhere near as much work if we move. I'm an old fart like you :D

    Good news Steve
    Let's face it a window round is not tangible
    You could have a bad turn of events and it dissolves to nothing
    Cash in while on top and relax a bit
    I would like to do that but in very different circumstances with young family etc
