Take off, means subtract in this instance. So, if you know that X amount for heating is included in your rent, then subtract / deduct that from the figure you give them. Obviously you can only do this if you know the amounts and it is included.
Since you pay extra for that, don't include it in the figure, you would just put £480.
Don't feel silly, early is all relative... and if I leave later, I have to sit on the motorway an extra half an hour. I get in the office before anyone else and have my breakfast there and a nice big cup of T. By the time the office fills up I have got all the important things cleared and can be more relaxed the rest of the day.
It is difficult, I work much better in the evenings, but have a day job. I need to leave the house before 7am... get really tired in the day, then come 9pm wide awake. Even when I go to bed at 10.30pm I can lie there for ages awake. Next morning, struggle to get up and the cycle starts again....
I work one day at home when I sleep in a bit longer and frequently have really long sleeps at the weekends. Let me know if you find a solution...

Ah, it is based on Harvard. I have guidelines from the university (I have made a few changes to the Harvard EndNote style to fit), but there isn't a data example... there are some online, but I just wonder if I can "fit" them into one of the EndNote templates.. eg electronic article or whatever as there isnt an option for data in the drop down.
Or maybe I need to construct my own.... hmm
EDIT: Ok, worked it out, possible to add a new reference type and style appropriately by editing the bibliography templates 8-)
New question - if some of the data being provided/ used is the raw form/ output of a study which is already being referenced, then I suppose I need to reference both the data and the report?
I have been advised to reference the data & software for my dissertation, I have been sucessfully using EndNote for other references which is helping a lot. Any ideas how I would include references to datasets...? Do I just pick a random article type and complete it best I can (eg electronic journal?), or manually just edit at the end (might forget...). Having trouble finding anything on google.
Ta for any help! x
Yes, thank you. Just the common sense talk I needed.... thankfully I have been told I can just submit a digital copy, no need for printer ink nightmares etc.
This is my first degree, never having completed a BSc, so although I have completed a number of assignments etc during the course I am finding the dissertation a struggle just in terms of knowing what is expected. I swing from being happy with what I am writing, to feeling like it is completely off the mark and not up to scratch.... I guess maybe this is normal.
Anyway, head down and keep ploughing on.
Ok, I have just over 1 week to get the dissertation finished... I just can't seem to get writing. I have various bits and pieces all disjointed, probably about half way there and have a couple of days from work and this weekend to get the rest sorted.
So top tips for motivation please, and any motivation favourtie tracks as during my procrastination have downloaded spotify...:p
Yeah we get a few moths, but I just can't sleep if it is so hot :-( Worse than the moths though are the bird noises at 4am, or cats fighting outside waking us up. Who knew seagulls could be so noisy. So quiet and hot, or a bit cooler but noisy.
Anyway, my point was if I had the heating on just now I would melt away, I'm not sure how you can cope with it on.
I work full time (with an hour commute each way) and study for an MSc part-time so working in the evenings... I find the excercise part hard, but try to plan a week ahead for food. Each week I plan what to eat the week after, so I can have all the shopping in so there is always something when I get home.
I have recently got a slow cooker, you throw all the ingredients in in the morning and then it cooks all day on a low temp, ready to eat when you get in. It is good for meat stews, curries etc as the meat goes really tender. Also, if I cook, I do big portions then freeze half. This way each week I am only cooking on a few days and the others I am defrosting meals from previous weeks....
