Here’s an open message to N Power, my utility provider!
You along with the other robbing country folk have now increased our energy prices by 20% this year. I’m being so very very careful. I have not used gas for the last 10 days. I’ve not heated any water, or used the hob or had any radiators on. I’m loving the warmer weather as I can dry washing outside and I’m heating the house with wood.
Tonight, I moved lots of wood, stacked it and sorted it, chopped some and brought the weekend’s wood indoors and placed it in baskets. I gardened, put hanging baskets and the last of the tomato plants in the compost heap. I didn’t light the fire for a while because I was so warm from the jobs I had to do. I washed clothes and they are drying in front of the wood stove. None of this has involved much bought energy. Again, I’m lighting the room with one eco bulb and this blog is being typed from the light of a solar charged lamp. I’ve had micro mini showers, I’ve flushed the loo with shower water caught into a huge blue plastic box. To all the energy companies…………………..you can take your price increases and stuff them! I’ve no spare money for lights and gas so bog off……I’m not paying and I’m doing without!
