Today is the last day of free water … water charges will be coming in from tomorrow. Funnily enough they are exactly the same as in my old hometown of Itzehoe (€ 4.88 per cubic metre including waste water). Well, Itzehoe might be a bit more expensive even, but then we really had good drinking water there. Whereas in Ireland …

But enough of that, we here in the sticks are not touched by this anyway. Because we pay for water ever since we moved here. Private well, electricity for the pump, water filter system, pumping out the septic tank.

Weird thing, though … we were at a function in Dublin last weekend and heard a lot about “clean water”. And got served same. Well, it was clean, and soft. But it also had an annoying taste of chlorine and chemicals. Prefer my own well water any day, I have to say.

So, have a last free wash …
