I have just signed up for fixed price duel fuel until 2011.
I don’t know if I have done the right thing. I was warned by ‘Vanessa’ that there was a £100 exit fee which made me think they know something we the public don’t but you know what I just can’t spare anymore of my thought processes on thinking about such boring things.
I am planning a winter of austerity living like a peasant…. Lots of hearty slow food (which I understand is trendy) wearing cardigans (very on trend) and huddled around my wood burner which I have been asked not to mention because it makes me sounds pretentious and up myself….I’m not but I concede wood burner ownership is a middle class badge but as I’m as common as muck I see myself as exempt :)
My husband can get old pallets for nothing so it’s kind of free heat and it supplements our logs.
The other gadget I am thinking of buying is a paper bricket maker….as we buy a newspaper everyday I thought I could use them as fuel…my mother says she wants to be in charge of making them….which is akin to a child saying if they got a pet rabbit they would clean out the cage…..
Flowers made from felt scraps....waste not want not!
Anyway I have spent most of the summer reading about doom and gloom; I've got our food waste right down by planning which doesn't come naturally to me so I've decided to try and enjoy the winter and have some fun saving money.
Positive mental attitude....
