Hi Guys and thank you for the kind and informative comments. We are quite cool about everything (considering the boiler might be knackered), but just glad to have to water on and am eagerly awaiting my hot shower.
Thanks to Slaphead who emailed with advice and telephoned to see how we were getting on, who also mentioned that we were due a blizzard. Well, Slaphead, you were right! It is stupid weather here now. Only reason I said you were right is you are now married and you will hardly ever hear those words from now on.
Thoughts go out to everyone who has responded with similar or worse incidents, but I must admit, that we sat down eventually after 5 in the morning and I made us a cup of tea, then we had a laugh together.
You realise, there is not anything you can do but handle it and if you don't laugh, you cry.
As Vicky said, I had to have the day off work and by the looks of tonights weather, I wont be there tomorrow either. After using up 7 days annual holidays out of 20 between January and February, it's the last thing I need.
I know I may be close to losing my job in Varna - selling 'Lucky White Heather'.
Anyone want some - discounted price!
Seriously, thanks again for your comments and encouragement and we are ok for the moment, just insurance crap to sort out, but HAPPY!
Cheers, beer now or maybe a wine!
Malky & Vicky
