Well having started off in a depressive mood this morning when writing about yesterday...Iím humbled to read that Diane is is bed suffering with a cold and Gibel I just sat and cried when I read your first post... what a thoughtless soul I am when people like yourself have suffered so much... Iím really pleased to hear that your heating has been fixed and by now you should be nice and toasty....

I think as quite a few people have said after Christmas itís felt like a big let down... now to pick oneself up by the boot straps and carry on...
I know that some people suffer with the winter blues, itís not something Iíve really understood before but I think maybe I do now!

Caroline, bless you, I wasnít in bed with the cold...I did have cold symptoms but they disappeared by noon, thankfully - might have just been the weather.  Every morning after I take to dog out, I go back to bed after making tea for myself and OH, and just have a relaxing hour reading! I must say I admire your housecleaning and cooking, you seem to have a lot of energy. 
So glad Gibel has heat now.  Hard to get on with things when one is either too hot or too cold!

In the Northern hemisphere, the weeks after Christmas are usually hard to endure for most of us I think, and I bet many would hibernate if we could.  This year it is likely to be worse than usual I fear, but the days will roll on inexorably, and Spring IS creeping up behind us.  :-*

It was lovely getting warm again last night although it took 3 hours for the rooms to feel really warm. It was so normal I had to change fleece pyjamas for normal ones. Had a panic this morning when the heating wasnít on but it did get going again. Iíve just had a shower, bliss after quick washes after boiling the kettle!

Sorry to hear people are feeling so down Iím the same. I think itís due to the dark days, cold and the never ending grind of when will it all end. Some good news today that the Oxford vaccine has been approved. Hopefully that means that many more people will be vaccinated soon.

Boiler stopped again! Waiting for a new engineer to come given up on the original one!

New engineer came and got it working but I have to operate it in a different way as a temporary fix, Iím having a new boiler 3 engineer visits in 8 days is too much for me! The new one will be guaranteed for 10 years.

Flat is lovely and warm again thank goodness. Itís taken itís toll on me but hopefully a good sleep tonight and I should feel better. Itís been a horrible couple of years.

Living through a winter with an uncertain and temperamental boiler is a nightmare Gibel, and I truly sympathise.  So glad it is working again.
It does sound as if you have been having an awful time of it lately.
As the adage goes: "troubles never come singly", but hopefully you have endured your quota now, and the law of averages does point towards a brighter horizon for you, so fingers crossed.

Hopefully a much better year coming up for you, Gibel.
Might seem like a dumb question, what is a boiler, in the sense of a heater?
