Good Morning, Yes I am still here and glad to say the heat is on (at the moment). What a week Monday morning just out of bed at 8am when the plumber arrived so, it was all go as the the position of the pump and tank are in a cupboard in our bedroom and the beds have to be moved to get in. That done the plumber got started then discovered that he needed another part so off he went to Perth to get it thats about 38 miles there and back. Just after her arrived back the snow came on very heavy and continued for a couple of hours. It did lie but not very deep just a inch or so. By lunchtime the heating was up and running it has been a bit noisy and we still have to have another valve fitted to let the air escape so we have been told. I am absolutely fed up to the back teeth with this heating system this winter, it is getting old now but has cost us a fortune this winter. It has been strange in our married life every time we treat ourselves to something that is not absolutely necessary something essential will break down, last week we bought our new camera etc and then the heating goes wrong again its aways been the same it used to be the car always broke down now its the heating oh well mump over.
Yesterday we had a little run round in the car before doing the shopping and collecting Ellen from school. She is looking forward to going on a school trip next week sking in Glen Shee. She is a lucky girl. She has been having lessons since she was three on the dry ski slope at school so I am sure she will enjoy the real thing once more it is a while since she was on snow so it will be great fun with her classmates.
We have been trying to get out all week to try out the new camera and scope but the weather has been so cold and miserable it has been impossible. Stuart has had a bit of a practice from the kitchen window to the bird table and was pleased with the results. I have been amusing myself with my old playstation been playing Tomb Raider once again am finding it hard to get back to the level of expertise I was at a year ago it takes time to get the control back but I will get there in the end. I find I am not nearly as patient as I used to be and cannot stay on the playstation for nearly as long as I used to but I still enjoy it very much. Well I think thats about it for now waiting for the plumber coming to fit the valve and watching Andy Murray over the top of my laptop hope he does well. Till nixt time,Love
