Well, not so much cooking as heating! The cavalry, in the shape of a lovely young man, a very t a l l, lovely young man, called Jason, arrived at 16.45 this afternoon and solved our heating problem. He did take some floor boards up but in the end was able to clear the pipe without cutting into it. Phew! The poor man has just left (18.30) and has a 30 plus mile journey to his home on very icy roads. I hope he gets home safely. It's true what they say, you don't know what you've got till it's gone. We have managed with a couple of heaters but it has been getting progressively colder and it's wonderful now to feel warm and hear the pump humming away. Bliss!
I now have a house to put back together and have to put everything back in the airing cupboard before I can set my sewing room up again, as I dumped everything in there. I had great plans for this week and they've already evaporated so I may take a little longer to get back to creating while I catch up.
I hope everyone experiencing horrible cold winter weather is keeping warm and safe.
