Thanks, Dove....that looks delish!

Of course I wouldn't engage anyone wiithout 'Gas Safe' credentials and TBH his work was safe....but oh dear, what happened to common sense?

I'm aware this isn't a chat thread, but feel I must update you on the boiler saga....I'll try to keep it as brief as I can.

I should say here that whilst not being a 'boiler engineer', I do quite a lot of DIY and have a fair idea of plumbing, electricity (and a modicum of common sense) etc and how they work.

Having listened to the 'engineers' explanation of why the parts he ordered didn't fit, I noticed that a steel plate at the base of the boiler wasn't fitted as I would have thought (upside down to be precise) and if he reversed it I could imagine things (screw holes etc) would be  where they should be.

To cut a long story short, I have a fully functioning central heating system again.

I thought you were suggesting I have a cold shower to calm  myself down David ! 


Come to DK Towers for a cold shower....the bluddy boiler engineer has just told me that 'they've sent the wrong parts' and he will have to re-order  and the job will not be done until sometime next week.

Encouraging to see those, Fairygirl.

Posted a pic watering my runner beans last summer, but the text seems to have disappeared in transit....just wanted to post something cheerful from last year's beautiful summer.

Hope it's all going well David. It's a bit of an upheaval at the best of times, but worse when you've had the flooding with it. 

Glad the eyes are fine 


Bless you, Fairygirl.....all I need to do is to watch the news to know how lucky I am.

Thanks, KEF......boiler being replaced at the moment....not sure if I've posted this before, but as you like lillies, I'll post it anyway.

 Btw, follow-up visit to the eye surgeon last Monday.....all gone well, next appointment in a year's time.
