    I had intended to spend a decent amount of time at the allotment as the forecast appeared to be dry. I'm still waiting for it to stop raining and its now 2.30pm.
    Exciting jobs for today therefore include:
    Sign tax form and return to accountant - done
    Speak to next door about needing to turn off their electricity (see below) - done
    Phone Northern Powergrid and re-arrange appointment to change house fuse as they couldn't do it last week - done
    Vast quantities of paperwork and shredding (useful for hotbin) - done some
    If I get a chance, harvest beans, carrots and blueberries for tea. - done carrots
