Wednesday - heating finished!!!

Another early start, engineer was here just after 8 with a young chap to help him. Electrician was here by 8,30 three chaps in the airing cupboard, hardly any room to move, work went on apace.

I did the cheese an onion pie for tonight, 2 loads of laundry out, we discovered there is a leak under the kitchen sink, plumber tried to fix it be decided that we should phone the council and get them out to look at it.

The chaps kindly put the 3 machine boxes in the attic, I had to break two of the boxes down to get them through the hatch. The young chap cleaned up everywhere even mopping the floor in the wet room,

After they had gone, I set to and cleaned the kitchen and mopped the floor and then set to in the sewing room, the young chap and helped me to shift the two freezers, the small one is now on and once its frozen up I will transfer all the fruit into it from both the other freezers.

I am so pleased that the heating is finished it switched itself on at 4.30 and the house is warming up nicely. A couple of the radiators have been turned down, the sewing room one is on the frost stat, so if the temperature drops the heating will come on. I have the engineer three christmas stockings for his children.

I have to admit I am shattered getting up early 3 mornings running has just about finished me off so we will be having a lie in tomorrow will then finish the sewing room.

This is what we saw at lunchtime.

The engineer was very tall, he had a problem getting into the cupboard under the sink to see of he could find out why there was water lying on the shelves.

Cheese and onion pie with baked beans for supper, There is a banana left so a banana split maybe.


  1. Joy, joy, JOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I join in your elation that the heating work is finished and am so glad the workmen were all lovely to work with. It was nice of them to lend a helping hand with the plumbing leak and in getting those boxes to the attic.

    How kind of you to give 3 of your beautiful Christmas stockings to the electrician's children, too.

    What a delight it will be to have all of the fruit in the little freezer so it's easy to find what you need. Now to get the chap in to put the new shelves in the airing cupboard so all can be put away properly.

    I finished the two wee quilts and both are wrapped, packed up, and ready to mail. Now it's back to the two small star quilts that each have a 12" star block in the center. Progress!

    Enjoy having a lie-in tomorrow morning!


  2. How wonderful to have that large task behind you. Now you should be all set for whatever conditions the weather brings. This is a good thing. Get a good rest!!

  3. Good second day, central heating done and working! You have made a good start on getting the bungalow back to normal.

    Kind of you to gift the Christmas stockings.
