Invest your money in an old type 80W light bulb and an empty biscuit tin, you have the makings of a heating system {Smile}

ps if the biscuit tin needed to be emptied before use even better {Grin}

Thanks for your advice Ian and Melle {Smile}
However, an 80watt bulb is quite expensive to run nowadays and i thought very carefully before spending any of my huge windfall {Rolleyes}
Soooooo, i bought my wife some chocolates, bought a new mouse for my laptop (its great, it changes colour and everything) {Grin}

As we had some left over, we blew it on food {Grin} {Grin} {Grin}
So now weve eaten twice this week, we both feel so spoilt {Grin} {Grin} {Grin}

Yay i know, we havent actually eaten the food yet,
We look. at it for breakfast
Sniff it for dinner
Lick the wrappers for tea
Dream bout it for supper {Smile}

Unfortunately, Tesla refused to do the work of a mouse.
He said a mouse is a rodent and he is not
He wouldnt allow me to plug him in via his tail, also began sitting on keyboard and licking the screen {Smile}

I reckon he deliberately sabotaged all attempts to carry out any mouse like duties.
Also, he doesnt keep changin colour {Grin}

Being means tested it is not likely to help yet but keep it in mind for the future.

I didnt know it was means tested.
I thought anyone claiming benefits automatically got the cold weather payment for weeks which are very cold
