I'm in hot water .... well up to my elbows anyway.
The central heating/hot water oil fired boiler is now re-installed and working on all cylinders. This means hot water for washing pots, and last night ... luxury of luxuries .... a nice hot bath.
Having something like hot water and central heating taken off you for while makes you appreciate it all the more, and I do. Although now the heating is back in action the new house thermostat is set at just 16.5 degrees, and that's where it will stay unless I really need it higher at some point during the day. At this temperature a woolly jumper or a couple of layers and warm socks make it a very pleasant place to be, I really don't like a hot house. But knowing how well we managed without the heating means that it will only be used as a background warmth, the Aga and wood burner will still be our main source of heat for the house.
Advent Challenge - Day 2
A little mug I was given as a freebie when we were at the Llanrwst Country Show this Summer. I've never used it, maybe someone else would like to, it's gone to the charity shop anyway, even if they only get 50p for it at least it may be useful to someone.
