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).

These are my normal blog posts.
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.
So… sorting through papers both loose on the bookshelves and in boxes, dated between 2014 and 2019, with some as far back as 2008.
It doesn’t really seem that long since I retired, but it was back in February 2022.
The first couple of months of retirement saw me not doing that much at all – it was very easy to just laze about and not get around to getting things done. A lot of cooking and eating, TV and reading – particularly reading; I got through a couple of novels a week and made a good dent into my to-read list.
I bought my first pair, which were light beige, in late 2019. After I had worn them for a month, I was so happy with them, I ordered two more pairs, another of the same, and a blue pair, suitable for wearing with jeans.
It’s a nice lakeside area, but it has paved as well as rough paths, so is good for walking, even when it is wet and muddy in other places I visit, like Bourne Wood.
After university, my first real job was as a reinsurance statistician. Our office was on London Bridge, looking out to The Monument.
