The trouble with talking about our new central heating system is that people misunderstand me. They think it's a replacement for the 'old' central heating system.
No, It's a new one which replaces the aged gas wall units we had, until today, heated our home with.
To be without central heating in 2008 is a bit like being without a telly or a phone.
People are shocked and bewildered.
We are warm and happy.
