GN.  I got a text to say I'd won a prize in the flood relief  raffle.
Even better news. I had to go to the pub to find out what it was.
BN.  It wasn't the top prize.-Two tickets for any Ospreys game.
GN.  It wasn't the two tickets for any Swansea City match.

It was a £10 voucher for the Chinese.
GN.  That's dinner sorted one day next week.

Good news - of a sort - I'm getting a strange shadowing on one of my 14 year old Eizo flat monitors, that means I should be able to justify changing for something New! Shiny! 2 x 19" seemed like a lot at the time, it doesn't any more.

I'd better just check pushing the connector fully in though, hadn't I?

Oh.

BN - we have a gas leak in the supply to the boiler
GN - SGN were out within half an hour to look at it
BN - It’s a pinhole leak in the side at a bend, and too time consuming for the engineer to be allowed to fix, which would have been FOC so supply has been isolated
GN - we have immersion heater, fan heaters, electric cooker and an open fire
BN - our plumber doesn’t work weekends any more.
GN - I first smelt gas Thursday evening, but we have none inside so dismissed it as the Eucalyptus leaves in a bouquet my wife had - thankfully no mishaps!!!  Helped by the supply pipe being external to the house albeit the leak was close to the boiler cupboard. Could have been a LOT worse   :o

BN: The Proclaimers gig at Edinburgh Castle on 20/7/19 was sold out by the time I remembered to check. 20,000 tickets in 55 minutes.

GN: They announced another gig the day after and I bagged a brace.
