The central heating has been fixed, thank goodness. The problem? The condensation pipe that runs from the boiler to the drain was frozen solid.
Well that’s what the engineer told me. It seemed as though he’s had a busy week with broken down boilers etc, but within 30 minutes, the pipe was de-iced, re-insulated, fixed back in position, and the flat is back to it’s toasty feel that was the case up to 3 pm yesterday.
Just as I say this, we have another heavy dose of snow here in London. Miserable afternoon. But I’m happier now. The hot water bottle can go back in the cupboard and with milder weather on the way, hopefully this will be the last of the weather induced breakdowns. Just good to feel warm once again.
