My boiler conked on Saturday and they couldn’t get the part until today. Consequently I have been all weekend without central heating or hot water brrrr.
The house I grew up in didn’t have central heating or double glazing and I can remember waking up to frost on the inside of the windows and yet I have no memories of being cold. Just the opposite in fact – I think of cozy coal fires and hot water bottles. Did I wear warmer clothes? Was I made of sterner stuff or is my memory just playing tricks on me because I’ve been blooming frozen all weekend.
The boiler is mended now thank goodness.
