She was quite happy to leave her car- on a corner from the main road- blocking the lane with hazard lights flashing rather than accept help

Thanks Becks

Geoff do you not watch crime dramas?

Feeling really cold - sorry Jo - so just lit wood burner. Was a struggle to get it to go usually 1 match and whoosh away it goes - 5 matches later it has decided to flame. Could be different sort of kndling, not sure. perhaps it was damp after deluge during night - I lay it to light when it is really cold so not every day.

Cake looks like the sort my kids used to decoreate fot their Granddad. He always ate it! Like Dad's/Mums who eat pastry that has been squashed and pumelled to make a jam tart or whatever.

Don't worry about it.

Well I've just baked 3 almost ripe pears in butter, lemon juice, caster sugar & a vanilla pod all done directly in the Remoska- a table top electric cooker. Absolutely yum. ALL gone, served with vanilla ice cream.

We're a lot warmer now-phew. The lounge gas fire now turned down & the hall radiator also on a lower setting. Ok upstairs is chilly, but have taken the fan heater up ready for later. I've even removed my body warmer!

Washed up with kettle of water- rest for dishwasher, when I get round to emptying it.

OH got remote! I'll never learn. J.

Lottie- now NO hot water tank, so no emersion heater now either!

With these new fangled boilers the tank & the one in loft are both redundant! The empty 'hot' one is now outside & the loft one has been emptied/drained, I hope.  I refused to let them see if would go through the loft hatch- noway, it's way too big. But as it's now empty, one less worry re it beginning to leak or the ballcock needing replacing again. I know that neighbours have had damp ceilings from problems above.

Right, dishwasher to empty. J.

Jo-I thought that as well about the tank but it did-can't they just cut it up?

You will notice the difference in the bills

01/11/2012 at 20:04

Jo sounds like things are moving in the right direction.

01/11/2012 at 20:08

Evening all, changed my mind and replaced wonder witch with my rose.

Kate - well done on the job, enjoy!

Becks - you can't taste the shape!

Well done forkers, 10 thou and counting, here's to the next 10 thou. We sure can talk!

01/11/2012 at 20:18

Glyn -you never did say how long it takes you to get to work?

Nice rose

Combo boiler takes abit of getting used to but haven't had an airing cupboard for a long time, fuel bills are lower and hot water is on 'tap' as no tank to heat up.

Can also adjust water temperature according to the time of year. at moment ours is on autumn/spring setting but have a feeling will have to turn it to winter earlier this year. Best we have is  a thermostat we can put in the room we are in or on landing in evening. When the burner is on we find the heating doesn't come on very much, heats most of house andwe don't have thermostst in living room.

Make sure you keep cover over old water tank Jo. You could get lots of creepy crawlies if not!

Thanks Glyn and I saw your reply for the commute
