“Snow and adolescence are the only problems that disappear if you ignore them long enough.” ~ Earl Wilson
Being without central heating on the coldest days of the year isn’t to be recommended, it is, however, exactly what happened at our house last weekend.
Someone who shall remain nameless, forgot to check the oil tank, though in truth we’re all to blame. The four adults living in this house should have known better, and after forty two years of living here I should have known better than anyone else.
Two freezing days later (Monday morning 7.30 am) the oil tanker arrived. Unfortunately, the boiler wouldn’t restart, it was, therefore, another twelve hours before the boiler fired up again and when the temperatures dropped further, we were oh so very thankful to be warm again and just in time before the heavy snows arrived.
