It's been a horrible year, friends dying and lots of other things going on, and now to put the tin lid on it my central heating boiler is kaput - not saveable!!! :-( :-( :-( :-( :-(

I often think Ann that when we begin to pick ourselves up
and try to get on with everyday life something comes along
and knocks us back yet again.

I hope that you don't have to fork out too much money for boiler
and that things start to pick up for you and that 2014 is a better
year.

Daughter has had an awful year too Lots of problems with her stepsons mum and social services stepping in and for a long time being manipulated by the mum till finally ,we hope, got her measure.ITs still ongoing

Thought thing were calming down but NOPE the storm brought down or damaged 18 roof tiles They can be fixed but her car that was sitting on the hard standing got its bonnet damaged by the debris and has to have a new bonnet. Both are insurance jobs but she has a £450 excess on her car insurance and the premium will go up .

Its a Audi sporty type car so wasnt cheep to insure anyway .

She does wonder why it seems to happen to her all the time :-(

Can you get a grant?? Here, the Scottish Government is on an "energy saving spree" and grants are available for all sorts - boilers, solar panels, insulation etc. --- IF you're eligible.

Lol Ann love to have been a fly on the wall.

Are there any grants around for boilers? I am sure I saw something the other day.

I hope 2014 is a better one for you.

Poor you, Ann, hope you can get the new boiler installed asap and be nice and warm (and clean) again. Good thing you have the gas fires.


Ours has been a difficult year for many reasons, but seems to be looking up, touch wood lol!

My son at last has a job, starting tomorrow, I have won several small amounts on lottery etc amounting to just over £200 so can get my new specs at last and the car we found to replace the one o.h. reversed into a tree and wrote off, seems to be a good 'un, same model and colour as the dead one but a year younger (2002) and with very low mileage, (in for a service and cambelt change tomorrow pm) and mechanic says it's a bargain. No need for o.h. to dig into his savings and the insurance money should pay for the car, service and mot at the end of the month too so very little loss financially.

Also my son moved his gf and her little boy into his flat in Sept and that seems to be going well, little lad is happier and better cared for at his new school so hoping everything continues to go on track now.

Take care everyone

At least you are still here to look back at 2013, what ever it held. And to look forward to 2014. The futures bright, until the lights go out.

We've had a horrible twelve months (at least!).

I've talked a bit here about OH getting sick & the flood in the house, but there was lots more, from trivial to huge, appliances blowing up to friends & relatives dying.

I'm looking forward to 2014, hopefully it will be better.

Wishing all of you a better, brighter & happier 2014 (a bit soon for New Year greetings, but I'm getting in early).

Yes well 2013 wasnt as bad as 2012 or 2003, however we still have had our fair share. Oh was paid off in mar for 3 months just before my brothers wedding so our financial situation was dire. even though he is back working our 2 cars needed so much work we still have the bills to pay.

One sometimes wonders when it will end and is it only us that continually have these problems whereas there are others i know and nothing ever goes wrong for them.

I wouldnt wish anything on anyone but just sometimes i wish it wasnt us.

I hope ann you get your heating sorted quickly, such a nuisance and an expense you can do without.

I also had other things going on which were horrendous and would like to forget so wont be mentioning those at all.

So yes come the 31st dec ,2013 is being booted out the door with a size 12 never to come back!!

lets hope for all of us that have had difficulties that maybe, just maybe 2014 will be an improvement for everyone.
