We tested our generator today. It doesn't work. It was never going to be really useful, it's only a few hundred watts. If the mains electricity goes down and stays down, civilisation is over.
I managed to get onto Barclays Online (it was down on Saturday) to pay the Vatman a fine they levied on me for not sending in a P11D(B) form. I had sent in the P11D, but didn't realise that the (B) version was also needed. It's not that I object to paying my taxes, but why do they have to make it all so difficult to understand?
We're still fit and healthy - so far, so good.
