I don't know what is maybe different this time in the latest edition that come in with the rent statement but somehow it seems different, even more informative and a damn good read. I know they are always informative and can be something of interest for all throughout the pages but I sat down with a cuppa after looking at the rent statement and had a read. Normally I skim read it and make a mental note on what I want to go back and read more fully. That's nothing new for me, I do the same with all magazines and read what I call the best bits and then read the rest.
The latest edition I found interesting from start to finish and seemed even more packed with info and useful stuff from under occupation write up which we went through ourselves a couple of years back to the smart meter stuff which are replacing the more conventional meters and meant to be a better option. The Great Estates was a good read as was the ODS info and the pending changes in the service. Being topical and with the changing season the information about mould was a good reminder as is something I dare say most of us come across over the years in some form or other. Who is Steve?! I found interesting as I enjoy the quiz corner so reading a bit about the chap behind it was enlightening.
The lightfest and Christmas lighting festival, I think given how this year has gone and what has been a trying time for us all in so many ways it sounds a lovely way to try and brighten life and the darker evenings and how sometimes lighting can change our moods or just make us feel better somehow. I know we have said we plan to decorate for Christmas a bit more with lights around the place and the decorations. Just the idea feels uplifting and something to look forward to and how it may add a cosy effect to the darker evenings and wintry chills that no doubt be about. I have already brought this lighting thing with stars on the ends which is designed to hang in like a living room window, my thought was it will look nice and also to anyone who sees it from the outside it may give them a bit of cheer too somehow. I just have to make sure I put it up now!
