HOT OFF THE PRESS

Warmth and therefore joy are back, thanks to a sympathique, efficient, careful and knowledgeable young Polish-German heating engineer I had the good fortune to chance upon.

He instantly identified the problems (one of which, embarassingly, was spent batteries in the thermostat) and dealt with them all, no hanging about, in less than an hour, for a reasonable fee.

Home is toasty warm now and tonight I'll sleep gratefully, sending sweet dreams to all our fellow Europeans.

Let us now praise Polish plumbers, with odes to (warmth and) joy!

Yes!

I initially thought the title here was "Hot and Bothered" as a play off the previous title. I don't know how I got that far off.

Glad to hear you got your heat working again. I've had furnace problems before. It's very frustrating, and it kind of makes you feel like you're camping out in your own home.

B.W. 'Cold and Bothered' would have been a good title for my previous post. Yes, I'm so relieved to be warm again, especially since I'm one of those people who tend to feel cold and astonished that some people go around coatless and in short sleeves on what I consider to be wintry days.

I'm glad your heat is back. I will join Lucy in praising Polish plumbers. And sorry I got off track yesterday.

Thanks Bruce and don't worry. Getting off the beaten track is much more fun than sticking to it. It's my favourite diversion.
