However I am feeling totally fed up with things at the moment. I popped by Jane's blog and she was mentioning she called Hydro (electricity) and as she is in a rural area, she is getting a $28.50 rebate on her delivery charges. So of course I decided to give them a call to see if I was entitled to it. It turns out I am already receiving the rebate on my delivery charges as the flat rate for delivery is $61.30, and I am only getting charged $32.80.
So I asked her why my delivery charges on my last bill were still $62.50 and then she proceeded to tell me it has to do with usage etc, etc. If I hadn't have got the discount the delivery charges would have been $91 that is plain crazy if you ask me. My total electricity billed was $47.68, the delivery charges are $62.50 does that make sense to you??? The total bill this month was $125.25.
I mean I can't get my bill down any lower. As it is I never use the electric clothes dryer. I use my toaster oven rather than my main stove oven, I only turn on lights when we have too, and there is only the two of us in the house. Gas/petrol prices have shot up again. Food prices are just going through the roof. I read on Carol's blog that even the price of cotton is going up, which means material prices are shooting up as well. When will it end?
I think I have a really bad case of the Winter blahs at the moment.
Carol is having a Giveway at her blog that I would encourage you all to enter, as she is raising funds for a little guy in an orphanage called Nicholas. If you remember we were trying to raise funds for Olga over the Christmas period, Nicholas is in the same situation.
