Another busy and eventful month in August.
We took advantage of the Eat out to Help Out scheme this month. We made the most of it and went out a couple of times each week, as it is usually too expensive as a family of 8 to eat out.
The kids (#3 and #4) went back to school. Hurrah. They needed to go back really as, unlike #5 and #6 who are home educated and can self motivate, they need the structure of school to keep on track and do some kind of work. Also, #3 is in his final GCSE year, though we do not know yet what is happening with exams this time around.
It has been a bit more difficult around the house the last few weeks, as Mrs FU broke her ankle after I persuaded her to go out for a jog with me (my fault!). So she is hobbling around on crutches for 6 weeks whilst she recovers. Luckily it is a clean break so there are no complications.
FU#1 is still looking for a job. He had an interview last week which went well and he was hoping to hear back this week but he is still waiting,
On the property development front I have had initial designs drawn up, but these needed some changes, so I have yet to approve the final design before submitting to planning.
FI Target – £1.25m to give £50k/year income @ 4% withdrawal rate.
Current FI value – £575k networth+ £455k (2xState pen £18.2k x 25) + £87k (DB pen £3.5k x 25)) = £1.11m
% to Target FI – 89% (no change 89% last month)
Time to FI = 3 years (assuming 7%/yr. growth in net worth)

Diet and Fitness – Eat out to help out was the culprit this month which meant I gained a little from last month. I went up to 70kg and 16% body fat (68kg, 15% body fat last month).
My target is to get to 65kg and/or under 12% body fat.
eBay/selling – Nothing to report this month.
Keep healthy and safe everyone.
