For some unknown reason the boiler manufacturer insisted on sending the much needed part directly to us rather than have the engineer pick it up from his supplier.
It has finally arrived this morning, the engineer has been informed and he should be here with us in a couple of hours or so to fit it so all being well we should have heat and hot water by tea time.
This has been the longest and most miserable three weeks I have ever known and I shan't be sorry to see the back of it.
We moved Marlowe's overnight stay to next weekend as we weren't sure if we would be sorted so I have a week now to do a good deep clean of the house so that it's all sparkling and twinkly for when she comes.
Today I am trying to create some order in the sewing room ready to turn it into the wrapping room for the Christmas gifts. I just need to finish off a quilt which is being gifted before I fetch all the wrapping paraphernalia down.
I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and I thank you all so much for the lovely comments while we have been working our way through this problem.
