We have heat!

Not only do we have a warm house, we have hot running water. The lack of hot water from the taps was actually more annoying than the lack of heat. Our house is small, G has a gas fire in his study and I have an electric heater in my little room upstairs. The electric convector heater could very quickly get the kitchen nice and warm, but washing hands under cold water is no fun in winter, neither is having to boil endless kettles of water in order to wash up.

But the new boiler is installed and working, times have been set in the timer, so I should be able to get up to a warm house from now on, and once I've investigated the Hive app, I should be able to control things even when away from home, so if we've been out for the day and want a heat boost so the house is warm to return to, I should be able to make that happen.

Oh, I also have a new camera, but more about that when I try it out over the weekend.

Christmas window

49/52 for the group 2019 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: W is for Window

The weekly theme for the alphabet challenge was "window", so as I walked into town late this afternoon, I was on the lookout for interesting windows. This was my favourite. It's just a phone shot, but on a dark and wet night, I wasn't going to faff around with a proper camera.

It was the town's late night opening and there were carols and mulled wine, but I just feel mentally exhausted after having all the upheaval of the new boiler, so I hurried straight through the the Co-op to buy pizzas for tonight and some easy to cook food for tomorrow. I will work on getting everything back into its proper place over the weekend.
