Last year, I decided to get a home battery system. According to Octopus Energy, my supplier, I use about 7-13kWh of electricity a day, excluding the electricity used to charge my car.

I am on the Intelligent Octopus Go Tariff. My day-time electricity costs just under 30p/kWh, but between 11:30pm and 5:30pm it drops to just 7.5p/kWh (Intelligent also includes some bonus charging, but let’s ignore that).

Over the last couple of years, my back garden has involved a battle against the weeds; a battle which I admit I have been fighting half-heartedly.

When everything is good out there, I enjoy spending time planting stuff and (weather permitting) sitting out there. But once I let it get out of control, it was just depressing. Worst of all, the pointing started to go between the pavers, allowing weeds to take hold. I had a go at fixing this myself, but decided it was a lot of work.

I’ve been going through boxes of paper and other stuff from my old box room – formerly my old WFH office.

So… sorting through papers both loose on the bookshelves and in boxes, dated between 2014 and 2019, with some as far back as 2008.
