"off for a long cup of soothing tea"

But don't boil the water using an ELECTRIC kettle.

Might be better if you boil the water on the gas and leave the electric kettle alone for a while ;-)) ...alB

If you had a hydroponics set-up in the loft, you might be consuming that much but making more!

It has crossed my mind that I could save a fortune on electricty by tapping into the street lights. Assuming that you don't mind waiting till it's dark outside to boil your kettle!!!???
