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.
