Energy Price Cap announcement: Watch Martin Lewis explain what it means for your electricity and gas bills this winter

Not the good start to 2020 that we'd hoped.

As 2019 ended, things looked good for me and my little family here. I was just retiring, DS and his wife had agreed a sale on their family home in the Midlands which meant that they were in a position to buy my house and then we were to build a granny annexe in the garden. We'd had plans drawn up, the application for planning permission was going through, their mortgage had been agreed and everything looked as if it was going swimmingly.

Until yesterday when DS came home from lunch early, from the dream job that he had taken just six months ago, with the news that his job no longer existed :-( So now, with no job, the mortgage offer is rescinded and the plans are back on the shelf and everything is back in limbo.

Hopefully, it won't take him long to find something else, but who knows??
