The Heat

When we came home last night after having a wonderful dinner with my parents, we were feeling no pain. Really good food combined with great wine and even better company had us feeling on top of the world at 10:45 PM.

That is until we stepped in the house and discovered we had no heat. Earlier in the day I'd had the Boiler serviced and for some reason one of the two pilot lights had gone out and would not relight. We ended up having to call someone to come and fix the heat. He arrived at midnight.

To say that we are exhausted would be an understatement but we really felt that given that children are so little we couldn't leave them here in the house as it got colder and colder all night long.

We've been told that given that the boiler is over twenty some odd years old that pieces of it are starting to break and sooner rather than later we are going to have to replace it.

Great. (Yes, that is sarcasm you hear in my writing.)

My mind is tired so I will probably not even make an attempt to write today.

Best to all of you
