Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

A great beginning

2011 ended with the complete breakdown of the boiler. It started off on New year's Eve just leaking a bit. The gas men arrived in the afternoon to strip it down and find out what was wrong. After 4 hours the boiler wasn't working at all - no heating or hot water! But they now know what is wrong. It's the heat exchanger - the most expensive part. So much for these compulsory condenser boilers we all have to have fitted. This one is the most recommended. 5 years old and virtually needs replacing! Still they did give us 4 fan heaters to keep us warm until the parts can be replaced!
