I have a feeling this title will be used several times before I die.

Having just enjoyed a wonderful few glasses of Sloe Gin, it has come to my attention that the Oh-so-useful feature of online meter reading is a complete con.  I was completely duped by their seductive prose – everyone’s doing it, it is the new tomorrow, online reading, up-to-date account information, pay for what you’ve used, no guesstimates… you get the picture.  But, halfway down this lovely blood-red bottle I realise that I’m doing all the work and they’re saving money!  Worse, I have done their meter-readers out of a job!  Quelle horreur!

That’s it really.  I shall have another drink and then retire to my lovely, comfy bed.  I was appalled, I blogged about it, and now, buffeted by half a bottle of sloe gin, I shall sleep.  Plenty of time tomorrow to be more positive. 

Isn’t there?


About Bea Turvey apprentice author and witch

I am a wild-haired author who cannot stop writing. The writing process is not a task for me. It is an extension of myself. When I write, I lose myself as easily as if I slipped into the story for a swim. Writing became a serious part of my life in Decmber of 2009. Unless you're reading this in 2017 it wasn't that long ago, and the bug hit me hard and fast. My first novel, Banished, was published in March 2010 and is available at If you read it, or anything else I've written, I hope you'll post a review and let me know why you liked it - or even why not!
