We both were up very early this morning, had to be ready to open the door for some workers that have to replace the old gaspipes (they do that with every house in the street). As we have an old house, the pipes underground never go straight and simple, so the guys are deliberating how to do it the easiest way LOL.
Lucky they can go under the house, well, at least for a part. Oh well, I hope they do the job as quickly as possible.
We had to clear the area where the gasmeter is placed, in another part we had to clear too a bit cause there is a hatch they need to go through.
Oh my, just returned from the door, cause there was a problem with the neighbour on the 2nd floor appartment!! Seems they didn;t see the guy making the appointment for today(I doubt it, but they speak poorly Dutch and not too well English neither). Lucky, that the neighbouw was still at home, but he had to go to his work. After deliberating he finally called his boss, to ask if he could change his workshift. Well, he could so he stays home today. Pffffffff, I am sooo glad, cause otherwise the whole thing would be blown off for today, the pipes are connected through all 3 appartments and they have to change all 3 of them together.
I wonder why people don;t read the letters well they receive about planned work by the council.
Anyway, all is solved, the work can go on. let's hope it will go smoothly and rather quick.
In one way it is a good thing, because we had to put away a lot of things out of the area from the gasmeter, will be good opportunity, to go through all and probably throw away some stuff and re-arrange the rest. Oh, one of my favourite occupations(NOT) LOL!
Jan is a bit pooped out, cause he already started to clear the working area yesterday, went to look for all possible needed hatches in the floor, etc. He did too much, so no good thing for his back, but you know he is stubborn.I did help, of course, but I was out yesterday to do some shopping and he already had done most of it, when I returned. Then we have also some trouble(all comes at the same time damned) with our central heating system. It is loosing its water, so we have to refill it several times a day. Not a good thing.
Therefore Jan yesterday also went under the floor, to check if there might be a leak in one of the waterpipes of the system. As far as he could see, there isn;t. So it might be in the central heating boiler. I have no idea. We will have to call for a expert to see what is wrong.
But we will have to wait till the gas guys are ready, and I have no idea how long that will take. It may be that we will have to wait to make the call till Monday. Of course there are companies that will come in the weekend too, but they charge often a lot more. Cross your fingers please,that it will be minor problem and that we will not have to replace the boiler,our finance is rather tight at the moment!
Okay, first hthings first, they started with the gas pipes just now, so workers are going in and out the house, LOL.
If that is done, we will deal with the central heating thing.
I think I have a great kit for you today, named "Beyound Time". It could be a very versatile one, and oh whee, you have a such wonderful add-on from arlene, she has made you a fantastic quickpage, a lovely page border and a clusters. I think you are being spoiled, ROFL!
Wishing you a lovely weekend, hopefully I will be able to teel you the gas thing went well and what is happening with the central heating.
