Well on Friday, the boiler guy came out, but ended up not being able to fit the filter. The thing is huge, and there’s not enough pipework exposed for him to fit it. We’d have to dismantle part of the kitchen units, to allow it to be fitted, then put one of the cupboard back together without a back on it, to allow access, meaning that we basically couldn’t use it for storage space.
The guy did try his best to find some way of fitting it, but after about 2 hours, had to admit defeat.
While this was going on, I was watching a box set of the Old Grey Whistle Test, which is pretty damn awesome. If you’re in the UK and of a certain age, you’ll remember this groundbreaking music show. If you’re outside the UK, try and get the box set, and see some legendary performances by an ecclectic mix of artists.
On Friday evening, it was on with the kilt, and off for a curry with friends, before heading to the charity ceilidh. The food was average, but the ceilidh was an absolute blast. It was raising funds for a special needs school. Some of the pupils were there, and it was great watching them have a great time. Everyone was up dancing, and the band were excellent, so it was surprising to find out that they were teachers, who’d only had one rehearsal !! Well done guys.
There was a raffle as well, and we won £30 worth of Tesco gift cards, and a deep fat fryer. Not bad, as I don’t usually win things.
