    My meters are outside and a smart meter is installed, you still have meters outside that you can check, just need to know what buttons to press. So if you are worried, yes you can check outside.
    You can also use them to set energy targets and check what is using most power by turning things off and on.
    If you have been in your home for a while, you will know what amount of enery you have, and what you will be using, so keep an eye on it just to re-assure yourself.

    Glad it's not just me with the sweeteners, I have always had issues with them, so I've been off them for decades. Recently I had some without realising and it triggered the most awful indigestion so I shall continue to avoid but it seems I have to be more mindful now as they are everywhere, presumably because of the war on sugar.

    No added sugar usually means added sweeteners.

    Reassure me that either the bucket and pipe end are outside or your have a carbon monoxide alarm. There is a small risk of CO coming through the condensate pipe.

    I have had dry lips aswell, and cracking, the best thing I have used for the last few days is Blistex Moisturiser, it smells a bit like toothpaste, but it sinks right in, put loads on when you go to bed.

    When my cancer spread to my spine last year, I received a Blue Badge. But the looks I got from some people when parking in disabled bays at supermarkets

    The last time I used it was months ago when I was with my wife and daughter - and a man walking behind us shouted to me it must really hurt

    Im a proud person, and I will do my utmost to hide my pain - especially in front of my teenage DD, she silently worries enough about me.
