    A price worth paying for warm toes.

    Though so far this year it's yet to get deep cold.

    Commiserations. Had the pilot light blown out? That's what ours teds to di in windy weather from a certain direction. And being 39 yrs old and temperamental we have difficulty relighting it. :(

    Last day of using the voice and hopefully some recuperation over the weekend Lan. I can imagine the consternation at having to move forward the sock wash by a couple of days. ;)

    Morning all and we have sun! :)

    Raining here but the dog needs to go out.

    Yesterday our Hive controller stopped working so we could not switch the heating on. I went online and spoke to an advisor who updated the firmware and got it going again.

    We really do rely upon technology these days don’t we?

    That's the main reason why Mr L objects to smart metres / Hive etc. All the more to go wrong and need specialist help / intervention is his opinion.

    Good thinking, Mr L.

    I have collected Mr F from the hospital, with his hand bandages and his arm in a sling. Two weeks not driving. He won’t like that.

    We have a smart meter. We’ve had it four years. During that time, we’ve changed energy providers at least twice, maybe three times and during that time, the smart meter has never worked. Even with a booster fitted, it doesn’t work. Useless thing.

    Alexa on the other hand, is useful. We now have four.

    Commiserations to Mr Foxtail. Is he a 'good patient' or will he need lots of cosseting? ;)

    Hope Mr F isn’t too demanding a patient.

    The gas engineer will come next Thursday. I just hope the boiler doesn’t refuse to start completely in between. It doesn’t have a pilot light on all the time, Lara. That’s what’s not igniting. Either a fan or a pressure switch, we’re told.

    I signed up for a new energy tariff at the end of November which required agreeing to a smart meter. I don’t really want one but had to give in to get a better deal. The new ones are supposed to be better. They haven’t contacted me yet.

    And from me.

    Mr BS has just stunned me with his daftness. We are off to London tomorrow to celebrate big sister's 50th. We will be travelling with all of the aged parents. He was concerned that they might not all own their own contactless debit card. I had to explain that there are still ticket machines.
