Water Bill

Today we got our water bill for the coming year.  Because United Utilities (the company who fleece us for water) realise that costs are rising are so generous, they have given us a discount on the bill for the year.  It's a whole £2.50 for the year. What are we going to do with it? Let's see who has the best idea of what to do with it!

Wow! Not even enough for a cuppa...At least it's a little bit off your bill.

I wonder what the non "special" discount is!

Urm, I would say 250 penny sweets, but even the price of those has gone up now!

You could buy about 10 skeins of DMC floss in the USA!

UU have informed us ,for the first time in over 30 years that our water will be off from 9am to 16.59hrs today...so precise.We regularly have an interrupted water supply.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

One of the new Lego Mini Figures from the forthcoming film? They are £2.49 so you'd get a penny change!

Or three skeins of DMC.

Put it on your desk and watch it devalue in front of your eyes. The water, like to gas and electric companies are a joke.

How about some floss LOL? Funny. I was catching up with your recent posts - Cinderella is adorable! Love the fabric you stitched it on and looking forward to your finish on it.
