In case anyone is wondering about the story of my central heating, here it is. There are some floorboards up around the house, there are many old ripped-out-pipes. There are some newly installed pipes. My guess is that they're probably going to have to fix a pipe under a new bit of floorboard, but I'm waiting to see what happens with that. The boiler is attached to a wall. The cylinder looks nice. There's no hole in the roof yet for the flue, so there'll be no gas burning yet. The roofer can't get on the roof with his ladders owing to the overly ornate ridge tiles. As a result, there's scaffolding to go up. Hopefully today.
My middle-floor hall light isn't working.
My carpets are suffering.
My electric heater still does a cracking job overnight.
I'm not really in the house more than 7 hours a day, in most of which I'm sleeping.
Allegedly we're on course for getting heating this week. That would be good. I like the heating people, they're pleasant, polite and seem to know what they're doing.
