This coming week cannot go quick enough!
Our heating system was condemned about a month ago after it decided not to switch on.
It’s an atiquated hot air system that just died.
Thankfully it’s not our responsibility to replace because we rent and for the first couple of weeks running on a couple of oil fired radiators wasn’t too bad.
However, since the weather has taken a cold snap the radiators just aren’t cutting it anymore.
The house is now so cold it feels damp. There’s constant condensation on the windows and we are fighting signs of mould around the frames.
We are walking around the house in layers of clothes and blankets.
Thank god for body heat at night!!
Hubby says I’m a human radiator.
Just as well really. I refuse to run anything overnight after I found out that our electricity usage went from 24 units a day to 51! just from a couple of radiators!
The landlord has done his best to get a replacement hot air system but has ultimately had to change to radiators.
Work starts tomorrow and could last most of the week.
I actually look forward to going to work just to get warm!!
Still, at least I will have a toasty warm house just in time for my two weeks of Xmas preparation annual leave next weekend.
On the bright side, Star Trek Beyond is out on DVD Tomorrow and Paterson is finally officially released on Friday.
Hopefully it will be showing at one of the bigger cinemas in the area and I can spend the day on my own, tucked up in a nice warm cinema enjoying it all over again. I really would like to see it at least once more before I have to wait for the DVD.
Right, the rest of today is going to be spent moving furniture.
It’s going to be a nightmare week.
