Arb's Retirement Camel

I've posted here about how my HYP income varied, but what about my "pension system" as a whole?
With reinvestment etc, the "price per unit" doesn't tell us that, so I thought to have a quick look this morning. Given that my pension income stands on four legs (like a camel and just as beautiful!) what was is the danger so far? (four legs = state pension, HYP, incITs, incOEICS, with the biggest part being HYP)

A quick check this morning shows that my first 6 months income dropped by 3% compared with the first half of 2019. Given that my expenditure has probably dropped too and that I have an untouched income reserve, the system is holding up satisfactorily, for now. Indeed, I have manage to make further investment topups over the period.

I look forward with some trepidation to the following half.

I'd compare mine to a shonky donkey! One leg being definitely much shorter than it was.
