Over many months (20 to be precise), I have finally managed to twist NPower’s arm – almost to the point of it snapping – to replace the archaic, overpriced electric and gas meters, which came with our house.

I did have to play the ‘disability card’ – something that I am not proud of. I was, however, very honest in my initial email; even managing to spin my situation into a sob story, so well crafted that it could have been from an X Factor audition.

My goldfish died when I was just 3. I have never fully recovered emotionally. As a result, I now use a mobility scooter. I cannot get to the shops to top up my gas meter. I had to spend last winter huddled up to my rabbit to keep warm. Did I mention my rabbit has a growth condition and has been diagnosed as a dwarf?

Anyway, whatever I said to NPower worked, because Claire, Roman the growth-stunted rabbit and me, now have a prepayment gas and electric meter.

Cue that catchy celebration song from Westlife, they always use on X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent – “What about now? What about today…”.

You could say that I got watt I wanted. Get it? I said that I got watt I wanted. WATT I wanted!

Want to know the coolest thing about the electric meter? Of course you do. The reading was set to 00000. Sadly, I don’t think it’ll stay that way.

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
