In view of all that has happened I thought the best course of action was to retreat my room with the fan heater and practise this.
One of my favourite painted bobbins.
Many thanks to local bloggers who have offered heaters and help. We escaped out on Friday night to have a meal with friends and a plumber called on Saturday to look at the cylinder.I am waiting for his quotation and hope to get the work done asap. We are taking showers at my father in laws (not for the first time)
When we first got together, circumstances meant that we were living in a one room bedsit with a shared bathroom and a kitchen in a cupboard. yes, you opened the cupboard and there was a two ring burner and a sink. We spent many evenings at Ian's Dad's coping with the washing and taking showers.
