S – after much juggling we managed to get together to blog today – we find blogging together much more effective. However, we chose to do this at Camilla’s and Oh My God was it cold – definitely a case of fuel poverty. Camilla said she is always listening to programmes on the Radio 4 about people having to choose heating over eating or vice versa. Following a ridiculously huge (and contentious) electricity bill at the end of last year, she has resolved to “cut back to the bone” on any extravagant or excessive energy use. Each morning Camilla has a glass of water by her bed with a film of ice on it – she has just made me a hot water bottle which is helping. Her husband is working in his office and we have a sneaky suspicion that he has the electric heater on! She can see him from the kitchen window and is sure that he has some colour in his cheeks!!!
