Good morning. I was going to put this out yesterday, but I was busy in the morning taking the car for a service and having a walk while they worked on it. I made a video and took photo's for that which I will put on tomorrow. Then when I got back the sad news came through and that stopped me in my tracks. So anyway, better late than never. 119 comments on yooootooob.
On a similar money saving theme, I found this scrap of paper on the road after the bin lorry had been along to collect the rubbish. It shows someone's attempts at trying to work their finances out in a notebook. I always say write things down because it helps to focus on the job in hand.
Predicting how much we are all going to have to pay is becoming a nightmare. I actually haven't done this for the gas and electricity, but I can see how important it is for families, because everyone in the household has a part to play in cutting down their usage. Everyone has to be onboard with it and make an effort.
If you are in this group, speak to your utilities provider, don't just ignore the bills as they arrive. Often an arrangement can be made to pay off a smaller amount over a longer period of time. Contact a debt charity such as StepChange for advice.

I wish you well in your endeavours to get through this very difficult time. Try to be pro-active not re-active.
Thanks for popping in. We'll catch up soon. Toodle pip. ilona
