The Joy of Heat

Just prior to leaving for Bolivia my central heating packed up. NO problem I thought, called the plumber and arranged for a new boiler to be installed. The timing couldn’t be better as I would be away when the boiler is fitted and I would return to a lovely warm house. Then I received a text whilst on holiday “your key doesn’t work”.

Actually the key did work but the lock had jammed. The result has been one very cold house and plumber fitting a new boiler (not an easy job in a house as old as mine). We have now been without heating or hot water for 3 days; it’s just like being back in Bolivia. To cap it all off the UK has just dipped into very cold weather.

Tonight though I returned to find the house warming up. My boiler is in and the joy of warmth is unimaginable. So to celebrate I thought I would share a newly completed image from the Bolivia trip. This is of the salt flats at Uyuni.

There won’t be a Friday image tomorrow as I’m off to Wales for some photography so I will wish everyone a great weekend today.
