Home insurance: shop around
Patrick Collinson's parents saved £900 on their home insurance.
A burst pipe in the loft, left running at full flow for days on end while my parents were on holiday two years ago, resulted in catastrophic damage to our family home. Virtually all the ceilings collapsed, both upstairs and downstairs, and the final repair bill was more than £100,000. Just drying it out using a bank of dehumidifiers took three months.
I am now retired after a full and enjoyable career, latterly spent at the BBC. I am enjoying a different pace of life, and doing many things I've always wanted to do.
I'd been looking for some time for a way to save and share my photographs with family and friends. This blog, which I started in July 2009, aims to do just that.
