I’ve been feeling the need for a thimble lately and I found these on eBay for a miserly sum. Much, much nicer than the ones at Spotlight!


We had solar hot water installed last week for a not very miserly sum. We are still having teething problems. Aren’t you supposed to get hot water with a hot water system?

  1. We’ve had solar hot water installed about six years ago. It took quite a few years until we got used to it. Now it has become second nature to turn the power off in the morning, have enough hot water for one person’s shower, let the sun heat the water during the day, have enough water for another person’s shower and the dishes at night, switch the power on to heat the water over night so it’s hot for the morning. It took ages for me to understand how it works…

    • That’s good to know. I’m hoping it will make quite a difference to our power bill. And you are right, we need to make sure we make the best use of the sun and least of electricity! 🙂
