Heavy Rain and gusty winds here again Brue.

Supposed to pick the caravan up tomorrow after some warranty work but just got a phone call asking if we could leave it until Thursday as they're short staffed. It would also appear that someone doing the PDI ordered new brake shoes as they were under warranty with Alko. We knew nothing about that as nobody has told us. So we were hoping to get a 6 night break in up in the Lakes but now only 5.

Managed to get through to both UK Insurance and BT without too much hassle today. Actually got an unasked for discount from BT on my Broadband contract. The Insurance was for extending our travel insurance through Nationwide account. Unfortunately the medical upgrade is getting dearer as more bits fall off the wagon. Needs must though.

No VED on our EV so we're spared that one. wink

Do you not still have to go through the renewal process?  There is no charge for our Smart, but we still have to "renew".

I have put a reminder in my google calendar now so should not happen again.

Insurances we always pay annually, TV licence we will have to start paying again no doubt, but other bills are all on monthly DD.

Our daughter also pays her VED by DD, but annually, not monthly, we could do that.

Very strong winds and heavy rain here, second day, hoping for a break tomorrow. Trying to sort out some paper work that has gathered over the last couple of years, must stop reading things as progress is slow! Stay warm and safe if your local weather is like ours! 🖼

Scowl, Growl and Howl !!

Monday was er er rather soggy as I discovered when collecting the newly MOT'ed and serviced Ducky. Tuesday was cool but dry, until, that is, I was helping Aged Sister back to load up the shopping into the afore mentioned 'van then it just lashed down.

Today it's a tad cool as it ought to be in mid January, but the sky is a clear cloudless pale blue - beautiful to beholdcool . BUT I'm house bound today -- deeply into Laundry-time, especially the clothing that got soaked on Monday   frown  !!  Might even get the ironing done this evening so I'll be free to offer the Aged One a drive across soggy Cheshire if she wants tomorrow, but I'm not taking bets on that, 'cos it'll probably be hissing down again -- I think Brendon { ?? Brendan ?? } might be bringing his younger brothers over this way  yell

Hope you escaped without more power outages, Brue ! They never, ever come at convenient times do they ??!! Five minutes before you want the cuppa and OFF it goes only coming back on when that rep's standing at the door chatting away  wink.

+1, once the batteries outnumber the ICE’s then the tax will not just appear it will grow. Same as fuel tax there’ll be a tipping point-death & taxes. . .Guarantees🤷🏻‍♂️

See my oft repeated comments in the vehicle and EV sections on here...hydrogen, mileage tax, all sorts of things will change in the future as they always do.  But at present our EV and our old classic car don't attract vehicle tax....you could tow with a vintage car JVB? winksmile

We did, ABM and after some serious rain last night we went down to the Dorset coast in the sunshine today, lots of flooded fields and the road into our village had flooded overnight but drying out now, hopefully. smile
