The gas men came

Update on the gas engineer. The boiler had been declared dead and is so old now that parts are no longer available.

The gas fire also needs repairs and can't be used until the engineer comes back on Thursday, but that can be repaired. We therefore had a long session with a different person from the gas company yesterday and have now arranged a new boiler, installation date yet to be arranged.

The old boiler was almost 30 years old and nothing lasts forever, so investing in a new one will make the house much cosier. Fortunately we have enough savings that the money will not be a problem, but of course it will be a pretty big job and a lot of disruption, which neither of us like but it can't be helped.

So today I am doing nothing much. Just relaxing and calming down after all the intensive activity over the weekend and yesterday.
