Got a letter from the council, telling me how much my council tax has increased for this financial year. (Explanation for foreigners: "council tax" is the tax we have to pay to the town/city/district council, which pays for essential services like sanitation, the police etc). It's gone up by 10% overall; over three times the rate of inflation, but nothing too major. What's interesting is that the proportion that goes to the police has increased by 44%. That alone accounts for a fair chunk of the overall increase.

It is gloriously sunny. I bought orange juice and ice cream.
