    Funny to see what I wrote back in mid-2008. Now, 3.5 years on and things are quite different!

    It's quite interesting to read through others stories- especially those serial investors :D As time moves on, strategies and circumstances change, however, often altering our initial goals, aspirations and even priorities.

    For example, now the only renovating I do is with a chequebook but the memories of a job well-done "DIY-style" years ago still brings immense satisfaction to my mind when I think back. Our investments in property have served us handsomely over the years, and I have few regrets. Our latest venture is a commercial one (which I never thought we'd go into) but life has a funny way of throwing up both opportunities and curve balls, after all. Keep 'em coming Redwing!
