That’s so good to hear. Please forgive my spelling, damn autocorrect is a nightmare!
My journey is only 12 miles and I intend to keep the battery charged on a daily basis, just in case I may need it. So I’ll definitely need to be keeping the heating on and the comfortable amenities on.
very much looking forward to many silent and clean miles of driving.
The bold part may not be such a great idea. Car batteries don't like to stay for long times above 80%. Neither do they like going under 20%. Cars usually have a limit to prevent you from damaging your battery, but charging fully every day if you do such low mileage will still probably end up damaging your battery in the long run.

Recommendation: only charge when you drop below 40%, and unless you know you need the extra range, only charge up to 80%. I understand you don't want the car to get in the way of your lifestyle, and it shouldn't. But being overcautious may damage your car in the long run. Only charge fully if you think there's a good chance you'll need the extra range.
