That's It Then - All Over Bar the Campaigning



May the 6th it is then, yet it does seem as if it's nearly all over, although the official campaigning only starts today. At present I have little enthusiasm for politics in the weeks ahead. Somehow I think it will be more of the same with personalities dominating the agenda rather than firm policies.

There was far more excitement (and at times frustration) here this weekend when my newish boiler decided to rock, rattle and roll to a grinding halt, leaving me, on Sunday, without warmth or hot water (with the exception of the kettle). However I have wonderful tradesmen and yesterday my plumber and electrician attacked the offender with gusto. Unfortunately Worcester-Bosch's manuals don't convey much detail and two telephone calls were necessary to their technical help line (which is open 364 days a year I discovered).

Credit where credit's due; to my tradesmen (who didn't charge me an arm and a leg) and also Worcester Bosch for realising that life does go on as usual during bank holidays.

Subrosa, Snotty may have used the bunker for the last time, how is that not exciting? Glad the boiler got fixed!

Maybe I'm just slowly building up the momentum OR and I haven't quite managed to come off the blocks as yet.

SR, is service 24/7/365 what a service is supposed to provide - unlike the public sector!

Glad you now snug as a bug......

The only day Worcester don't offer instant technical telephone help is Christmas Day WFW.

There are few businesses who would bother in this day and age.

Oh-er know the feeling, had to get Scottish Hydro out on Christmas morning! Santa's boots had got stuck in the heat exchanger

Gosh you were lucky. That must have bee some time ago or, if it was recent Dram, must have cost a small fortune.
