Weight Loss Wednesday

So last Thursday the boiler flatlined on me!  Lots of flashing red lights and a leak meaning no hot water or heating for me, I have a combi system so no water tank.  Fast forward to today and I've just got hot water back but no heat.  Why you may ask am I telling you all this?  Because what do us humans do when we are cold, we eat lots of comfort food.  And although moving around a lot keeps you warm I actually do not feel like moving around when I'm sooo cold so didnt burn any of it off.

Luckily for me my family are real close by so I was able to at least take a shower or two, don't mind boiling kettles to wash up but I draw the line at filling the bath up with one LOL! 

My plumber is hoping to have normal service resumed by end of the week.  Makes you realise all the comforts we take for granted in the western world. x


  1. Poor you, no heating and no hot water!!! Horrible!!! Eating was the only thing to do!!!!

  2. Popping by from Weightloss Wed. I hope we can all support each other and have success!!

  3. I can sympathise on the water I have only freezing cold or scoulding hot at the moment!! I'm waiting till next week for something to get sorted! I guess at least I can have a bath just not spur of the moment. I'm having to run it and then wait for it to cool down before I can get in!
