Its all downhill now, equal day light and night time, from tomorrow theres more darkness than light. The SAS repairman arrived, he having a 5 week waiting list showed good judgement and obvious favouritism by calling here. Apparently the rayburn was not broken, again, no one knows what got into it, maybe the bio fuel mix the EU insist on nowadays is upsetting it. It finally warmed up and was coerced into cooking supper, a baked bean lasagna (like lasagna but with baked beans instead of mince beef, its fab) and we had a family night in as he who cannot be named returned from playing soldiers to celebrate his birthday. As the cooker was broken last Wednesday evening I shall be chastised for not feeding the technohermit, when he starts I shall just tell him to take it up with Brussels!
