New Boiler!

Finally! We are one step closer to getting this house the way we want it. That hideous, grease coated, rusty, crap, ineffective hot water boiler has GONE from the kitchen! As has the bulky, ugly old central heating boiler from under the stairs. Instead we have a sexy new shinny white combi boiler - although it IS under the stairs again and not in the cellar after all.

Tuesday morning the chap with the lorry came and delivered a ton of stuff into our cellar. Wednesday I had to go into work and Yorkie used his last holiday-day for this financial year to wait in for the fellers to come and fit it. Only they couldn't for various reasons, and having turned up for a while and reasoned with us that the new boiler would have to go under the stairs after all (for good reasons, I don't quite follow but Yorkie seemed to agree and I don't care so long as it works). Thursday they turned up bright and early and got the job done with no fuss and as little mess as humanly possible.

Now we have constant, instant hot water! Ooooo! It's nice! It can blow and howl as much as it likes out side and there is no way in the world that this hot water is going to blow out because of it - so there's no more washing at the sink with the kettle. The hot water is instant, so we don't have to run the tap for ages while it's cold, then warm where the water had been sat on top of a heating pipe, then cold again as that runs out, before finally getting genuinely warm. This water is so hot I've had to turn it right down or risk a near scalding! It's LOVELY!

It also means that we are now one step closer to having the kitchen sorted out - as we couldn't start until the old boiler was gone. And we're a step closer to having a baby-friendly home too!

Woohoo!

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
