I am a retired university technician who had the grand title of ‘Facilities and Technical Services Manager’ and based in the SE of England. Happily married, due to visual handicap unable to drive but hoping that maybe, one day, autonomous cars will be legal and available in the UK! I am a nerd with first class honours in the art of Scrooge economics in energy consumption and conservation and hence buy and sell with Octopus Energy.
