Because we have a pole in the garden that carries the electric cables to the property we get a payment of about £10.00 a year from Western Power, just got a letter from them telling me that is going to stop,they want to give me £550.00 one off payment instead, nice one

I'd ask for 750. by the time they have negotiated a new 'wayleave' it would cost them a lot more to move the pole.

It's always been in my garden all the time we've lived here, not a problem,in fact I have a bird nesting box on it with a family of wrens in it this year, it's the only way we get electricity to our place

Three numbers on the lottery tonight, would normally be £30, but it was the final rollover draw and nobody had all six numbers, consequently the pot was cascaded down through the prize levels. Three numbers tonight = £153.00smile2

I needed a new bathroom window so got a quote for £400. A quick look on tinternet and supply only was £145. Studied YouTube and it looked easy, did it myself job took me 2 hours and saved £250.

Everything is hard and difficult if you think that way Den, amazing, once you try it and finish a job how easy it is. Big part of replacing a window is making sure you seal it properly after it's fitted.

The only DIY job I hate, is fitting a door and door frame, looks so easy when you watch a carpenter/joiner fit one. Getting the frame plumb and square is a pain in the butt.

I had people watch me terminate an armoured cable, and they'd say you make it look easy, I'd tell them, after the first couple, it is easy, practice makes perfect.

I did the same with a carburettor the other day, Den. I had stripped and cleaned the carb but the engine didn't quite run right. I thought it might be the governor but then it was working before the carb strip. So I looked it all up on't net and lo! I had put one of the four new gaskets on back-to-front. A quick refit and the job's a gud'n.

I phoned EE from my landline because I can't get an EE signal indoors. I needed to "Top-up" my pay-as you-go phone and they have stopped issuing vouchers in shops. This called for me to use my credit/debit card via the mobile phone so I complained that I can't top-up unless I'm away from home. The bloke on the other end apologized and gave me an instant £10 free top-up. RESULT!

Just had an email from my utility provider (Octopus) that my prices for gas and electric are going down by 4% and 2% respectively as wholesale prices have dropped:jumping:But haven’t the “big 6” just put up their prices?

If you’ve got that for £20 then you’ve got real a bargain. I’ve got a similar Stihl setup and it cost considerably more than that!

I'm hoping this turns into a result.  Battery on my 3 year old Smartphone is dying. Takes all day to charge and goes flat quickly.  So. Looked online for vids how to fix it. It's a Samsung A3 2016, which has a glass back which is glued on. 

Anyway, seems straightforward enough.  Battery £7, double sided tape to stick glass back on (Special narrow stuff for phones) £1.70. and a set of assorted plastic and metal tools for prising and generally poking about without causing damage.. 3 quid. All from Amazon.

 

If it all works out I make that a revitalised phone for under 12 quid.  Has to be worth a shot..

 

Here's hoping....:blink:
