How's your day been?
When I hit a nail through one of our gas pipes... sigh... the repair guy have the decency to confess that he'd done the same thing, once, himself.
The circuit board is inside the boiler so still no hot water or heating. The leak is also inside the boiler. Never buy a Baxi.
Do you go to a friends house for a shower?
There is a family home close by and a spa I am a member of if push comes to shove. Failing both of those, there is always the boiling up water routine beloved by our ancestors.
I have washed my hair in cold shower few times, my head felt like ice
Family's house and spa sounds better
I remember there were £1 shower at Waterloo station. Don't know if it's still there. I'm talking 20 years ago
Did I tell you about our hot water system? It failed and, owing to bureaucracy, took six weeks to replace. I had cold showers for two weeks (it was summer) but God decided that we could have hot water until the old one was replaced. So... despite having a dead hot water service, it still produced hot water.
