News Flash

Still no sign of the part needed to fix our central heating~ HOWEVER~ after some Heath Robinson lashing of cables, masking tape, sticky back plastic, two empty loo rolls........you get the idea....................

Drum roll please
We have heating!
Hurragh!
This is an approximation of what I have been doing since the joyous gurgling sound of the radiators kicked in





I love radiators!




so does the Boodle, his sleeping regime is so important and he requires an ambient temperature of 21 degrees or so!



Happy days!
Thank you all for your lovely words of comiseration and encouragement, you've been brilliant!
Be warm and toasty xXx

    Love the photo of the cat curled round the radiator.

  3. Oh I know that horrible feeling of being without heating. We were without heating for 10 in Spetember/October at least it wasn't as cold as it is now. Poor you, that couldn't have been nice! Enjoy the warmth...

  11. The deadly silence of a house without heat is a terrible thing.

    No matter how diligent I am about getting my boiler serviced at some point, usually doing a blizzard, it goes silent.

    And my heart sinks.

    Glad your heart has risen,stay warm.
