Yes – We Do Have Heating

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

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.


  1. 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.

  2. Heat!!! YAY!!! Finally!!! I’m so glad you all are feeling the warm today! πŸ™‚
    Gratitude to Ronan and Mark!!! πŸ™‚

  3. 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!

  4. Do you have water or steam circulating in the radiators? Here we have steam, so I always hum “Steam Heat” from “The Pajama Game.”
