We were visited by the most obnoxious little eco-fascist yesterday. He came to do our heat and energy survey for the HIP. My advice to other UK house sellers on this one? Do not be present when he visits. If you have to be present, do not engage him in conversation. If you have to engage him in conversation, take a large dose of Valium in advance.
‘Nuff said on that score. It’s done, paid for, and will hopefully not need to be revisited. If we do need to renew the pack we shall go to another supplier.
We took ourselves out for a little break after that, being in need of fresh air even it it did come in large bucketsful. Very gusty, it was, though if this was the greatest storm of the winter then it must have been storming some other place because all we had was a bit of wind and a fair amount of rain and hail.
I know. I am not well advised to scorn the weather. Even so.
Do you know, I strive very hard to suppress the last vestiges of my juvenile cynicism, and to avoid the acquisition of the ‘mature’ variety. Mostly I succeed. Increasingly I succeed.
There are however days when cynicism rules. And this was one of them.
