I really enjoyed the muffins Ginns - they were lovely <3 <3

Don't worry though, I had my bacon buttie at lunch time ;-) :-D :-D

Cynths hasn't been back to tell us how her OH got on ................... I expect she is worn out and heading for an early night ;-)

Ey Up~~~~~~~~~~~

I cant believe Dea was content after a mere muffin breafast ;-)

Cyns, how has OH gone on? He's very brave, having those injections


Dea Report 7 Apr 2014 09:04

Hope all goes well for OH Cynthia - It would be nice if he could stop having those injections or at least not have them quite so often. He must be very brave to have them done, they can't be pleasant.

Good morning everyone..... :-D

Thank you for the muffins Gins. I wonder why it is that so many things taste absolutely delicious when smothered in butter? :-S

Off to see the eye consultant about OH progress this afternoon. We will discover whether or not he needs to continue with the eye injections or be moved to another form of treatment. Hey ho............

I have so much ironing to do that I think someone has sneaked some in!! :-0

Going browsing....~~~~


Dea Report 7 Apr 2014 08:15

Good morning all,

Ginns - you are becoming a 'little treasure' in the mornings nowadays - the muffins are delicious. <3

Glad your heating is sorted Linds but sorry to hear that the In-laws are not doing so well <3

Will pm you,

Dea x

Mornin all~~~~~~~~~~~

Kettle is on and some muffins are almost ready

Raining and dull here


Linda Report 6 Apr 2014 19:57

Where are you all hiding?

Heating fixed (I hope) took him all of 15 minutes :-)

Of course he waited till I was putting dinner out so left him to it.

Will just keep an eye on the pressure tonight. (The boilers not mine ;-) )


Linda Report 6 Apr 2014 13:36

Had a very late night last night :-D

Have phoned the gas person and he will come out late afternoon.

Yes Dea you have got it right. I will not be using them again. Still to get the bill and I usually pay them when they finish but am so angry this time they can wait.

Off soon to visit in-laws things are getting worse with them. :-(


Dea Report 6 Apr 2014 08:47

Thank you Ginns - I just love these toasted teacakes smothered in all that butter :-D :-D <3

I am off now to hunt out my 'Fenton' family, they have been puzzling me for many years now so it is about time I got them sorted!!! ;-)

See you later,

Dea x


Cynthia Report 6 Apr 2014 08:25

Good morning and thank you for the teacakes Gins. :-D

I don't have room for a dishwasher and, whilst there are only 2 of us for the majority of the time, I don't really need one. Anyway, washing dishes is VERY good exercise for OH..... :-D

Quick browse and off to you-know-where.......~~


Gins Report 6 Apr 2014 08:04

Mornin all~~~~~~~

Cyns, you now need to adapt to a dishwasher!

Kettle is on.................toasted teacakes all round


Cynthia Report 5 Apr 2014 22:10

Glad you liked my floor's vinyl and so much softer and quieter than the ceramic tiles which I inherited. Not sure OH is madly impressed but......???

I love my combi boiler....i haven't had an airing cupboard for 10 years..If my ironing is slightly damp, I just pop it on the radiator for a short while and the bedding is kept in a drawer under the bed. You soon learn to adapt Dea. :-D

Had a shopping day today......bought a new fireside rug for the dining room and spent most of my M & S vouchers - some of which I have had almost 12 months

Nearly bedtime for me.........night everyone.....~~~~~


Dea Report 5 Apr 2014 18:39

Well - there you go then Ginns - I haven't got bleeps and flashes and a tap thingy but I DO have an airing cupboard !!!

Dea xxx


Dea Report 5 Apr 2014 18:05

I would never get one Ginns - Unlike you !!

I REALLY LIKE my airing cupboard and would not be without it !!!

My son (the Plumbing and Heating Engineer) thinks they are the best things since sliced bread BUT I won't let my airing cupboard go !!!!!

Gins Report 5 Apr 2014 16:58


Your water pressure shouldn't drop, it's usually a sign of a leak somewhere in the system. It can drop if you need to bleed the rads, that's normal

The boiler has a light letting you know the water pressure, if it drops, it flashes and beeps at you. There is a small tap under the boiler that you turn to top it up

If the pressure drops to a very low level, it has an auto shut off and will not work until you top it up

I wouldn't be without my water on tap 24/7 and no need to heat a tank up and waste money


Dea Report 5 Apr 2014 16:50

Oooerrrhh - I don 't do 'Combi boilers' as I wouldn't have an airing cupboard then !!

Do you really have to top up that type manually Ginns ??

Dea Xxx


Gins Report 5 Apr 2014 14:27

Poor Linds

If it's a combi boiler it will need topping if there is a leak

Sat in hair salon waiting for hair to be cut


Dea Report 5 Apr 2014 13:51

Oh dear Linds - I don't expect you will be having any more work done by them, even if they are (were) sort of friends of the family ;-) :-0 :-(

I hope it is working well now and without leaks (Just one thought, you shouldn't have to 'put' water into the heating system as it should have an automatic feed from a tank somewhere to put water in when needed - Have you not got one of these??)

At last the heating is working :-D

We had to turn off the heating and open a window last night :-D :-D

Yesterday they were due to turn up at 1pm half an hour later I phoned the boss.

As we were on the phone her son walked in (should have been at me) he had to return a hire machine so would be about 2 hours :-|

At 3.45pm he still hadn't arrived. Another call to the boss which went to voice mail.

I then phoned him twice once from my mobile and once from the house phone (number is withheld so he wouldn't know it was me) both times his mobile went to voicemail :-|

I then called the boss from the house phone she answered (she is renovating her Mums house and had been outside talking to the electrician for 20mins) :-(

By this time I was so angry I let rip. I told her if he didn't show she could get the money I owed her from his wages as I wouldn't be paying.

(I know I would have to pay for work done)

She replied "good luck with that" (I think she meant getting him to pay)

I told her I wouldn't need luck as he had broken our contract by continually not turning up and not completing the job.

Surprise, surprise 15 minutes later he was at my door.

I open the door and he says "Hi Linda how are you" :-P :-|

Lets just say I left him in no doubt how I was.

When he gets under the floor finds a wall blocking his way. Long story short I had to get my son to come to get bricks removed to let him get to radiator.

At one point I had the two of them under the floor I was threatening to trap them there. His Mum told me to nail the trapdoor shut :-D

He eventually left at 6.45pm. Now OH thinks there might be a leak somewhere as he had to pet water into the system today. :-|

We will keep an eye on it and see.

So yes it was a b****y awful day yesterday and I still have to get the bill :-(


Dea Report 5 Apr 2014 09:53

Have been and had a 'quick' look Cynths - It is really lovely !

What are the tiles made of - they look quite 'textured' - are they vynil type or the solid fired type?
