Portfolio update here.
It's been a rollercoaster of a month that finished on a high - apparently due to action taken by the Bank of Japan to stimulate the economy. My portfolio certainly looks a lot better for it.
In other news I am feeling very pleased with myself for two reasons:
1) Making such a success of ditching our letting agent and finding a new tenant with only 6 days lost revenue between rentals. I have OpenRent to thank for this and am driving everyone bonkers singing the praises of their service which I really can't believe only cost us £49. I'm still pinching myself.
2) Fixing my broken Chromebook myself rather than taking the easy route and buying another. I took out the screen from the one with the scrambled OS which died last week and couldn't be revived and put it into the one with the cracked screen I dropped last year. The whole thing was as easy as pie (aided by an instructional video on YouTube) but, I'm ashamed to say, not the kind of thing I would usually attempt. A good lesson to learn. Along with "Be more careful with your ChromeBook" .
