It has been a very exciting week! I was dreading coming home last weekend, The Boyfriend was away, I’d spent hours in the car and the warning light had just come on to say it was getting cold outside – I therefore did not want to leave my warm car and enter the freezing house.
I could tell something was different as soon as I turned the key and I think I’d have opened a bottle of bubbly if I wasn’t on my own. It sounds weird but I could ‘smell’ the heating as I stepped inside as I wasn’t greeted by the usual cold draft. It was a major landmark!! It was so nice to be able to walk in and take my coat off (I normally keep it on as long as possible). For the first time in weeks, the house felt nice and cosy. The entrance hall is still freezing so all the doors have to be kept shut but I’m not complaining as we’re heading in the right direction.
As it was so dark I wasn’t able to investigate upstairs but this weekend I’ve been able to go for a proper explore and can confirm that nearly all of the new radiators have been installed and are working – whoop whoop!! The boiler has taken a lot of time to get set up and the bathroom it is in is such a mess that I can’t imagine it ever looking like a nice guest bathroom but we can worry about that in the future. For now, we can just be excited to have a new and improved heating system up and running.
