The builders have been in at Bowdfern Towers. And have created some loviness.

You never quite realise how you rely on something until it's gone.
As I mentioned the other day, we've just had our bathroom done. It was, I must confess, something we'd put off for some time. That and the kitchen too. Both really needed doing when we moved in back in 2004, however we didn't have the money at the time and over the months and years we just got too used to the way everything was. Eventually I put my foot down and decided that we just had to get at least one - and preferably both - done. I decided on the bathroom as technically it should be a simpler project (well one where there was less for us to decide�)
We have a new bath. A new bathroom in fact.
there's a draw in the spare bedroom just of computer cables and other bits - full to bursting. All tangled up, and with no idea what was what. As such, an obvious bank holiday task was to actually sort it out. And looking through, I was amazed at what there was in there.
I won't truly believe it until this evening when it will have been running for 24 hours, but this morning I woke up and the house wasn't ice cold. Could this mean that the heating saga (and posts) are now over? Here's hoping!
So I'm looking at my stats in Google Analytics, and blow me, if it isn't the case that the most popular pages on this here blog, are ones of me moaning about central heating.
I feel like I must have done something horribly bad to my central heating, because it clearly doesn't like me this year.
It's bad enough that thanks to Thames Water's "infrastructure renewal" programme, that our driveway has been blocked off for nearly two hours - the only driveway on the street to be blocked off incidentally - but thanks to roadworks I've been sat working from home all day waiting for a British Gas engineer to come and fix the heating (again!), only for no one to turn up.
About a year ago we had our gas heating serviced. As we had the year before. And as we have since. It's a twenty odd year old system and I was keen when we moved in to make absolutely sure that it was always in good working order, and that we weren't suddenly about to die of carbon monoxide poisoning or anything.
