We've had no hot water since wed eve. So we've been washing at the sink having boiled a kettle, let most of the dishes stack up, and generally got a bit stinky n greasy. Today the boiler man came out (hes still here actually) and fixed the boiler.... By turning it on.
Guessing one of us must have knocked the dial getting stuff in and out of the cubby, but it being reasonably new he didn't know the dial marked 0 and 1 was the on-off dial. Personally I don't touch the bloody thing if I can avoid it lest I get blamed for anything going wrong.
On the plus side both boiler and fire were due a service and that's what is happening now.
Next... Baths for all! Woohoo!
