I’m totally gutted :-(

All has been rather fine and dandy up here in the Republic.

After the catastrophe with our bosky thermorossi wood range that decided to give up the ghost last week. A replacement arrived in double quick time.

I was thinking of having it repaired and bunging it on eBay for a knock down price. …

Even took photos in readiness. ..

But once the new one was installed,  the old one was tested.  To my amazement we found a lot of damage. .. just look at the water pishing out of the boiler,  it’s like niagra falls. …

Methinks this thing is going back to the manufacturer. .. It shouldn’t have burst like this f f’ sake, it’s only four years old

image

Never mind,  the new one

image

is fitted and we have lashings of hot water

Hence the hour and a half in the bath and the wrinkles,  nay whissend look. . .

SUNDAY
and a day out with the photography group.  A trip to
HareShaw linn for some good shots and a bit of guidance on all things photo wise, followed by a couple of pints in the Cheviot

Cracking afternoon. …

Monday

Back to work for nights. .. on the way home on Tuesday morning. . My thoughts turned to red squirrel conservation and how (as I was travelling on a road that’s a bit of a grey squirrel hot spot)  that if a grey ran out of the grass and into the path of the land rover, I wouldn’t swerve.
When bang….. out runs a red squirrel totally unexpected. Great news. … that means the population is possibly on the increase after our hard fought battle. … bad news is. … I couldn’t miss it and sadly we are minus one juvenile male. … I’m so sorry little fella. ..  I’m so gutted I couldn’t sleep. ..
So tonight I’m absolutely shattered. ……

  1. Squirrel not a member of the Tufty Club ? Not a good feeling mind. My sympathies.

    Is your water very acid and that caused the boiler leaks? Could you have used a corrosion inhibitor? Dunno.
