Think I might have saved a few bob on the heating bills over the last few weeks!  :unsure:

Spot on Jay!

Our electricity bill was reduced from £123 to £107, even after the cold winter and spring!

Mind you, we'll get a hike on the sprinklers no doubt..:0(

We had to get an electric fan as my OH needs some cooler air to help with his breathing but it shouldn't affect our bills too much, potatoes leaves still looking fine, lavender flowers covered with bees, and it's far too hot to iron.  :)

The door is open from the moment I get up until it starts to get dark - wonderful. The cat agrees with this, as well!

Ah yes ... I remember when we had cats.  The arguments about closing the back door .. for the night, to stop the moths coming in (have you notice how this isn't really a problem this year?  :unsure:), in the autumn when not as warm.  We agreed on shutting it to keep the rain out!  :lol:

One of our cats used to stay out until about 2:00am, then clamber up the wistaria around the house, and bang on the bedroom window!

Regularly...

After giving me two claws, she'd saunter downstairs and kip the rest of the night and most of the day.

Loved her.

One day in the future there will be cats here again, but not at the moment.  It wouldn't be fair on them or us.  Or the neighbours.  Haven't they grown on you yet?

Back on topic - the lawn doesn't grow and neither do the paths on the allotment.  :)
