Boo and indeed hiss

New Year, New You? So much for that. I'd settle for heat and hot water right now to be honest.

Oh yes, 2007 is starting off in great form. I got back to London on Thursday afternoon, to be greeted with a non-working boiler. And it's still not working. I'm hoping that the gas engineer blokey will be able to get here this afternoon to fix it, I really am. Otherwise it's Monday morning.

Having said all that, it also looks like I will need a new boiler anyway. The one I have is now 11 years old, and has cost a huge amount of money to fix over the past couple of years. I was quoted a price yesterday - of £2040 - for getting the new boiler, installation and powerflush (for the existing radiator system). Which is a HUGE amount of money. So, as long as it works for the time being, I'll be having a look around to see what else is out there.

Still, glass half full time - at least things can only improve from here. And at least I now have some NICE new neighbours. Let's face it though, I was definitely due that, after the last one!

New Year, New Post...

It's been a couple of months, so I thought it was time to write something. Anything, really. Of course, now I'm sat here I have no idea what I actually feel like writing. Not the best start really, but there you go.

Well, last year was interesting. A year of ups and downs really. And of finding friends in unlikely places. It ended on quite a depressing note for me. Due, in part, to a combination of working too hard and sleeping too little. I really need to sort that out, it's getting a bit much really. Especially when it leaves me so little time to think up things to blog.
