We got heat!

We came home from visiting Julia and Emma in Aviemore (John is up a mountain in Italy) this evening to find a warm house. The boiler isn't fixed totally but it is going. Apparently they stopped making spares for our type of boiler about thirteen minutes after we bought ours, so the nearest possible motor was found as a replacement. Unfortunately it doesn't quite fit the pump it is supposed to be driving so more phoning to seek advice from manufacturers is being done next week but, until then, it should go. If it does stop I'm to phone the plumber (who rejoices in the nickname of 'Tiger' and whose greatest claim to fame is that he was a policeman in Monty Python and the Holy Grail ) and he will come around and tell us exactly where to hit the thing to make it work again.
