Everything is a prelude to putting prices up, Tina! However, I think they calculate gas supplies boased on expected usage and this cold spell is unusual at this time of year. I think it is more about their mechanisms for providing a gas supply and whether they use them to the full. If this sounds vague, it is because I haven't much clue what I am talking about!
On and Off here Rosa

Glad to be of service, Tina! Could do with a laugh myself!
Before i forget im in the market for a new decent border FORK , dont want to pay the earth though, just checking through the net, any suggestions would be welcome
Good afternoon everyone. Well I managed to sow my chilli & sweet pepper seeds and did a few other odd & sods. Was out less than an hour and I couldn't feel by fingers & toes.
The sun is shining but that wind is biting and the snow doesn't seem to be thawing much think I might just curl up in front of the telly for an hour and watch GW and the AtoZ programme that's on after it from this morning
This made me laugh..Did anyone else catch it...?

Why not wait for Lidl or Aldi to sell theirs they are a lot cheaper and in most cases better quality
than the big named brands ,just keep on the look out ,mine are 8 years old
When I took kitty for her chip I popped to GC- too cold to have a proper look round. Got some bulbs which are almost over but very cheap. Since then I've been wrapped in a blanket watching tv. Enjoyed A to Z, I didn't realise about the Lily beatles dropping on to their backs.
GG what did you teach? I've been teaching now for 30 years. Spent 21 years in a challenging school. Now in a school where there are not fights in lessons or that sort of thing.
Please please could someone order some warmer weather.
BB what have you been buying? I quite fancy one of those things that make pots from newspaper- but is it one of those things I will use for a short time then not use?
Been out most of today but saw the posts re gas and yes brum I also heard that about the 2 weeks. Any excuse for them to stick the prices up I always feel. They made the excuse about not having room to store gas a couple of years back and that was why they were governed by whatever the wholesale prices were but it sounds like a heap of %*()*to me frankly. It's a disgrace when you hear about pensioners having to choose whether to eat or put their heating on. And there saying another week of this. I feel a new rant coming on...
I've had my heating on 24/7 for the past 4 months. I just hate being cold. Bill is about to pop up online and I am quietly worried.
Bev, I taught religion, philosophy and ethics. Sounds high falutin, but I spent many years teaching underprivileged pupils - and loved them (most of the time). Then I went from one of the lowest achieving schools in Wales to one of the highest achieving, in terms of exam results. Still think my subject was the most important in the curriculum, though I expect lots of people would like to give me an argument about that. Worked an 80 hour week, took incredible stress- loved lots of it but glad to be out of it. How about you?
Tina, our heating is on for around 20 hours a day. I pay my bills monthly so things should not be too bad...
I spelt they're incorrectly. No prizes for me
