23% inflation...

I'm working from home today both because I get more done here and because all my suits were being dry cleaned (that's planning for you...).

I've just picked them up from the local dry cleaner and was amazed to discover that their prices have increased by 23%.

I guess dry cleaning services are fairly dependent on oil (both for the cleaning chemicals and for the delivery vans - my local provider doesn't do the cleaning in-house) but 23% does seem excessive.

This is probably an isolated incident but I'll certainly be keeping my eyes open from now on.
