There’s something to be said for the enervating heat. It caused me to leave some bedroom doors open and as I wandered past Lottie’s room about 7.30 this am something made me go inside and there was the hot water tap gushing forth – unstoppable.
The bad news is I changed to a water meter a month ago. The good news is I have a lovely new plumber just ten minutes away. Totally unaware of what time it was I phoned his mobile and eureka – he arrived with a nice hint of after shave.
As before it was the rotted rubber washer - probably been there since the twenties and at least I now know how to turn the cold water into the hot boiler off now. MTL had left labels in the airing cupboard, but I hadn’t noticed them.
An extra bonus my plumber has been having problems with a new computer and
Here’s hoping for a peaceful rest of Monday – for all of us.
