Ronan and Mark from Tom Sutton Heating arrived early this morning to fix our heating system. They cut off the piping to the area where the leak almost certainly lurks under our recently laid floor, thus avoiding having to lift that; and ran new piping down from upstairs; leaving us early this evening with
fully functioning radiators.
I spent a great deal of time on recovering this post:
Whilst I managed to reproduce most of the pictures, without resorting to my original colour slides I could not trace the first three images, and decided it was not worth the additional effort.
This one was more friendly. I could transfer the images via my desktop.
Later, I read more of Balzac and published https://derrickjknight.com/2023/03/13/droll-stories-15/
This evening we all dined on meaty pork spare ribs in barbecue sauce on a bed of Jackie’s colourful savoury rice with which I drank Paarl Shiraz 2022 and she drank Diet Pepsi.
Glad to hear that you’ve finally got heat. Hopefully you won’t need it until next winter.
Thanks very much, Carol. This made us both smile
Finally… Everyone is warm and cosy again. ????
I forgot again! I should have relied on the old fashioned way of using the keyboard 🙂
🙂 Thanks very much, Sue
Thanks very much, Sue
I really hope that the heat lasts a good long time. Extra bonus that the new floor wasn’t a side casualty. Congratulations on continuing progress with the pictures.
Thank you so much, Pat
Congratulations! What a long journey this has been getting the heat working again.

Heat…just in time for spring to lift the burden of the cold! I’m happy for you just the same. What an ordeal you’ve dealt with.
Thank you so much, Doug
Thank goodness the heating is back on. And let’s hope that is finally the end to this saga! (the heating, not Balzac).
What a relief to have dependable heat. I enjoyed revisiting the statues. 🙂
Thank you very much, JoAnna
Congratulations! and good wishes ????
Thanks very much, Rupali
I presume there was a hot time in the old home that night!
It just occurred to me that the song I was referencing is both very old and American, so here’s one version in case you didn’t know it.
Thanks very much, Linda. Unfortunately your video was not available to us, but Jackie and I saw this live at Croydon’s Fairfield Halls in the early ’60s https://youtu.be/1OLB6TJ6-g4
That’s a great version!
Very hot – we had to turn it down. Thanks very much, Linda
Glad you have heat. Here we had 94*F (34.444*C), yesterday, so I’m just as glad we had AC!!
🙂 Thanks very much, GP
I’m so glad to hear you have got your heating back, Derrick. Shorts and T-shirt for you from now on!.
I’m sitting with bare feet as we speak. Thanks very much, John
Yay, yay, and triple yay! What a long haul it has been for you. As a Mainer, I know how important heat is. Glad the system is working again.
Thank you very much, Laurie
Three cheers! Such good news about getting the heat back.
Thank you very much, Zakiah
I think it’s about time I stop by and see what you are all about. Obviously I am out of the loop on your goings-on but I have gathered this has been a rather long journey. So very glad you have heat!
Thank you very much, Dale
The pleasure is mine. Looking forward to getting to know you a little better 🙂
I am glad to hear you and Jackie have heat again!
Thanks very much, Lavinia
Wonderful that your heating problem is now resolved!
Thank you very much, Rosaliene
Hurray for the return of your heating!!
Thank you very much, Liz
You’re welcome, Derrick.
Yay! Enjoy a warm house ????
Thanks very much, Ribana
Sorry, is not me that I’ve put all those ???? in my comment….not sure from where they come from ????????
Thanks very much, Ribana. Fully understood.
oh…now I see, I’ve used emoji and it doesn’t show up…
Thanks again. You are not the only one.
Rather behind everyone else, I rejoice in the end of your heating problems 🙂
Thank you so much, Anne
Indeed. Thanks very much, Sheree
Do you have water or steam circulating in the radiators? Here we have steam, so I always hum “Steam Heat” from “The Pajama Game.”
Water. Thanks very much, Elizabeth 🙂
oh, yay! Heat!
Thanks a lot, Jodie
Bravo!!! About bloody time!
Thanks a lot, Widders
Thanks very much, Lindsey
