Welcome to DJK's Fantasy World where I'll be building different models for table top role play games and discussing my writing, including my novels based on the very first fantasy character I played. The models are made from recycled materials where possible, although various commercially purchased products will also be used and discussed.
I'll also throw in the occasional book and theatre reviews, you can't beat live performance. Plus my Dr Who tapestry progress.

Starting my “New Year’s Resolutions” early
Starting my “New Year’s Resolutions” early.
As the festive season galloped towards me at a shocking pace, I found it hard to feel happy, fluffy and festive. My letter box and email inbox received more grief than good will and it came from the main service providers for banking, electricity, gas, internet and phone.
I’ve procrastinated too long in giving these people a kick up the arse or the complete boot. So now they go. Their days are numbered and in some cases their time has come.
The first to go is Eon, supplier for gas and electricity now for several years. Earlier in the year when my fixed term for duel fuel expired they moved me to a new one automatically again with a higher than average price but fixed until April 2014. As we all know they seem very quick in hiking prices but when the wholesale cost comes down we never see the benefit. This time however they played dirty.
I have just received a letter saying my electricity prices are rising in January.
What about the fixed tariff until May 2014?
It seems now that according to their records only the gas was moved to a fixed rate and the duel fuel electric was not.
My tough luck.
This is not the first time I have had cause to
complain about them. Over the last few years I have experienced their inability
to process their own meter readings, have at times had over two years of bills
reworked several times as they entered a ridiculously wrong reading, thus
sending the billing into meltdown. I received a hostile letter from them for
being at work when their meter reader came, I HAD NOT REFUSED ENTRY I was just
not there as I’m not psychic. When I complained about this attitude in writing
to their customer service department I received no response. This has been
their last chance and the switch process is already in motion.
Others will follow, this will be a year of change unless services improve.
