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!
