13C in my flat tonight so I've had the big storage heater on for a couple of hours  & have donned the hairy cardie.

Not right now. Boiler FUBAR.

Ah well. Replacement being fitted tomorrow sez builder.

Given it should have been done while we were in France in August, along with the remodelling of the bathroom and we haven't actually got a shower yet, I'm not holding my breath...

Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.

Heating on today. Thermostat dipped below 17.5oC.

Yesterday would not have been a good day for the boiler to fail. So of course it did.
Astonishingly, not only did I manage to contact the famously impossible to contact plumber/boiler chappy, but he actually came within the promised 2 hours.
All good now.

Heating's been coming on in dribs and drabs since the end of August, but it's been getting going properly as the indoor temperature's taken a dive over the last couple of days.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

I put mine on this week, swapped from shorts to jeans and had a blanket over my lap in my office garret.
Wood burning stove's not been on yet though (but I did make some kindling today).
Do not clench. It only makes it worse.

Also, how long does it take for the stink to burn off a new oil filled radiator?
I bought one for my garret which I have had turned on full in the wash house (so I don't stink out our flat) a couple of times for 2-3 hours in total and it still stinks. Don't really want to be stuck in my tiny loft with that until the stench has gone.

6°C this morning woke me up.
Turns out that according to Ventusky it 'Feels like' 2°C.
No wonder it woke me up.
Summer weather windows now shut and the CH is on.

I normally try to leave our heating off until November. Sod that...

Warm radiators today, yesterday and at the end of August.

My thermostat decides, I observe.

Ours stays “on” year round, governed by the thermostat in the living room. Started coming on in the mornings on Thursday.

Who thought installing a "nest" stat, and putting the app on Mrs ham's phone was a good idea? Own up now.

You're either all lightweights or I'm 'kin hard because the most I've had to do on a few days so far is put a jumper on.
I'm still in shorts, I WFH*.
Rides are a different matter; it's getting cold out there.

*I also live alone. That might be a factor.

I'm thinking that the heating might be a good idea.

I feel the cold too much, and today I went back to bed in the middle of the day, as the allure of a warm duvet appealed more than fighting with bleeding radiators...

Yes, the boy's just asked for it. Claims to be a bit ill. Of course he's only wearing thin cotton clothing (serious point even if made in grumpkin style). Also, we had it on yesterday evening for a short while. Then it was me who put it on. Well, it makes sense to test it before winter gets here (new boiler this spring).

Riding in shorts today though. But with a jacket too.

Half the house just has sheets of OSB nailed over the windows and doors, so we’ve got the wood burner lit.
