Ah, Britain....

Forced to choose eating or heating, family burns furniture to keep warm |The Guardian

I bloody hate winter, but at least I can more or less afford to heat our home and eat.

Happy new-ish year. So far, so fuck-awful...

PS: And if the utility companies haven't got you over a barrel, well, then probably the banks have, but Billy Bragg has an answer. Wearing badges is not enough in days like these, indeed.

Happy New Year! May it be full of warmth and haggis.

a belated happy New Year!

I hate winter too... we almost had to choose electricity over food for a while there, but I thought chocolate was far too important to give up for a little bit of light at night ;-).
