My house is not a home

The weather's been quite mild for the time of year...until today when suddenly, there's another cold snap. Of course there is -- today's the day my central heating system is being brought into the 21st century, after all.

So, I woke up early and tidied up before Willem and his gang would get here. I don't know why I was so houseproud because within minutes of their arrival, they had trashed the place. The heating is off, all doors are open, and the hall and living room are covered in dust and debris. Moreover, when I snuck a peak a minute ago (the men having gone off to get some more tools and things from the van), I found that a hole had appeared in my kitchen ceiling! I hadn't been prepared for this! though I suppose it's to do with the flue.


Look at that hole!





Manasse checks out the new HR-boiler...


...casts a look at the toolkit...


and looks unsure



Meanwhile, I'm sat here, slowly turning to ice.
