I’m sure you’ll all be relieved to learn I ‘repaired’ the water boiler. Only took a couple of minutes… turned out the ‘fill’ tube had a crack in it so all I needed to do was invert it and screw it back together. It took more time to clean the scale off the screws etc. than to do the rest of the job… but that was all it was. Simple really.
Anyway, now we can drink tea etc without that ‘awful hassle’ of filling up the kettle (joke). Actually… because it’s so big and there are so few of us using it now, we don’t really need that amount of constant boiling water… so probably won’t use it until the oldies come back over. But at least it’s fixed. One less job to do. 🙂
