Fifty Pounds Richer

We'll be quids in after our power cut, fifty quid to be precise. Apparently the electricity company are obliged to pay out fifty pounds to each domestic customer who has no power for eighteen hours, then twenty five for every twelve hours afterwards.

Although the food in the fridge and freezer nearly came to that, and we had fifty pound excess so could not claim on the insurance, so probably it all means nothing.

Nothing, nothing at all.

fifty pounds.... Was going to leave a nice long comment but now have the urge to dash off and find out how you make power cuts...

Oh good, glad you got something to at least cover the costs.

Thanks for that Kay - there must be a way.
And yay Jen!

At least you've not lost out, I suppose.

Did you lose much in the freezers?

Annoyingly, mostly just things I'd bought when on offer to save money!
