Not bad for a lightbulb

Today, after twelve years daily use, I had to replace the fluorescent tube in the light in my study. It cost me £5.95 which I thought was pricey until I remembered how many years of use I had out of it.

On 22nd January, I mentioned here that I'd applied for Carer's Allowance. Well they were as good as their word, and last week, just over £1000 hit my bank account. Splendid, and Well Done to the staff of the Carer's Allowance processing office for their rapid assessment of my claim and prompt payment. Perhaps they should go and run our Doctors surgery....?
