Think our problem is solved.

Goodmorning everybody!
Well, it's the week of the central heating stuff LOL. Wednesday evening we filled the central heating again, because it became very chilly in the house. It warmed us up, but after about 1 1;/2 it was all back to zero point again. So we plugged it out and hoped the plumber would come the next day.
And yes, he did come and on the time he said he would.
It's a real nice guy, who works together with his son.
Well, they looked at all places, specially UNDER the floor and found the evil spot. It was an old pipe that was rusted to the bone, so they replaced that and some other spots and connections that were bad too. They even disconnected an old expansion barrel, that was completely rusted, ( it the thing that regultes the pressure and such don;t know if I have the right name for it), no use at all, cause we already have a new one in the kitchen for several years.
This plumber was very surprised to see it, and couldn;t believe the former plumber didn;t remove it,
when installing the new one. I tcould have been even a bit dangerous, because it still was connected for a part to all the installation, and if it had broken down(bound to be happen sooner or later) we could have had a serious problem.
To keep it a bit short, all is fixed, and till now all seems to work well, presure is still the same as yesterday, hoorray. We will keep a good eye on it for the next week or so, to see if it stays that way but I have good hopes.
Of course it was un unexpected expense, but we just could manage that, ab=nd I am glad it all was so bad that a new kettle was necessary! Because that we really couldn;t afford at the moment.
This plumber was real nice, did a good job, even gave us some good advice about a few things, even changed a few minor things with new, cleaned out the kettle, and I don;t think he charged us for that.

When the plumber was busy, I left Jan in charge, cause I had to go to Heidi, fro the dogs.
That was a good thing for me, that way I didn;t see all the work at home, and get nervous about it LOL.
Stayed for a little while there, just to have a cup of coffee and bu the time I came home, plumber was as good as ready with the work.
So we even could take a moment of rest, before I started dinner. And how wonderful it was, to sit in a room, that wasn;t chilly anymore! And lucky, that this didn;t happen, while freezing outside!!!!!

Can you beliebe that at the moment I am happy as a child??

Of course today I will have to clean the house a bit, already yesterday swept the floor with a mop, but also have to give it a sweep with the vacuum cleaner.
For once I will be happy to do that ROFL!
At the moment it is a bit grey outside, clouds are a bit low, but may be this afternoon the sun will come through again. We had some really lovely days, even some seeds are already showing their little heads above the soil! Next days temperature will go down somewaht, back to "normal"temperatures for this time of year. But still with a lot of sunshine. So it still could be nice to spend a bit of time in the garden, who knows?

That's about all for today. I really hope I will be able to make one or two kits during the weekend, because the one I am offering today is the last one of the stock, oh goodness!
But I may have another one again on Monday, perhaps not with clusters from Arlene yet, she needs a bit of time for it too.
This kit is named "Teatime in the Garden". well, we are reaching the time of year we can do that (or instead take a cup of coffee or a soda if you like).
Wishing you a wonderful day and weekend, till Monday again.

Hello and Thank you for these lovely downloads.
So good to hear you were able to get your heating fixed.
It's OK if you don't get any kits finished, you could probably use a little break after creating so many wonderful kits in recent times...

hello dear friend! So glad the problems with your heat was minor and fixed already. I'm sure it is a relief that it wasn't major. Thanks so much for the kit and for Arlene's contribution as well. Relax have a great weekend and don't worry if you don't have a kit soon, you won't lose any of us as followers because you take a little break....LOL! We finally got about an 1 1/2 inches of rain yesterday, we so desperately need it, today we have the wicked winds again and temps are steadily falling....LOL Don't think ole man winter is through with us yet.
You and Jan have a great day! Chat more later. Hugs, Mat

Thank you for the lovely kit. My favorite colors are Peach or Salmon. A rather subdues shade of pink/orange. Anyway..I too am glad that the plumbing has been fixed. Our weather is starting to warm up a little bit so I've opened my bedroom window and of course Mrs. Beasley immediately went out and down the wall to see that nothing had been moved in the yard. Snoopy cat!

Thank goodness you are safely warm again, and it is all fixed! We are having a wintry mix of snow/sleet/freezing rain, so this cheerful kit and clusters for spring are very welcome. Thank you both for always sharing. Hugs!
