For a long time a few people have abused a very generous scheme designed to help people that fall ill and need to be off work. Well the time has come when the big men in big suits have said, ‘enough’s enough’. Added to that, the need to cut costs in this current economic climate, the axe is falling, fast. Not good.
When I eventually got away, and returned home, more ‘news’ lay on the doormat inside a white envelope. It seems the half rent I pay on this ‘half share buy’ property is set to double next month. Up £100 a month. I need to make a confirmation phone call sometime today to make sure I’m reading this letter correctly, although it does seem pretty clear to me, no matter how many times I read it.
Anyone know of a field my cat, dog and me can pitch a tent?
Here’s a few pictures from yesterday, taken round the garden and on the feeders, whilst I’ve still got them.
