I have had the worst day!
It all started on the way to work. I took my bike and planned to push it to start of the cycle path (being that the pavement/road was very icy) anyway got about 10 mins into my journey and discovered I had a flat tyre! grrrrr so headed back home with the bike, called work to say I'd be late and then started walking - very carefully as it was very slippy this morning.
Coming home wasn't quite as bad slippy wise but I was under a bit of pressure time-wise as I have my pilates class on a Wednesday at 7. Anyway, got home about 5.50pm, grabbed the dog and took her to park returning about 6.15pm when I noticed it seemed a bit cool in the house. Checked the heating and it wasn't on - and wouldn't come on! Went out to look at the boiler and it was showing an error message so tried to re-set it - nothing.
Called Scottish Gas (we have one of those homecare policies - you know the advert - they call and then a few mins later the little gas van pulls up!) Well the little gas van isn't coming till tomorrow. Fortunately I already had put in for a day off tomorrow but now it wont be that great a day as I'll need to stay in till the gas people come!
The one shining light in all this (literally) was that my dad had bought me a little halogen desk lamp to sit on the table beside the sofa so that I can see what I'm doing when crafting. Thank you dad!
I am now going up to bed to get cosy and read my book!
