So glad all went well Jan and that you and Motley are pleased to be home. Good news about the healthy looking kittens as well. 😸😸.

How long is Heike staying with you for?

Yes, you had mentioned the deer. I assume her insurance will cover it, but if course there will be a cost....and probably an increase in premium....for her? 


We almost had a deer on our car bonnet a few years ago. It was a Red Deer, so they are huge beasts! Fortunately we swerved and missed it as it leapt out of the hedge towards us! Pheasants are the main hazard here, but there are plenty of deer around as well. it is not just the damage to the vehicle, but also the trauma of hitting such a big creature as a deer!

A report on my homecoming.

First problem, the the central heating didn't come on upstairs in Heikes room, the hall, my bedroom, kitchen or utility,I fiddled about with thermostats and the 2 boxes of pipes, I have no idea what you would call them, they are just here and all I knew was Hans fiddled with the little tap things until he saw the water come up. Anyway I called the Plummer, he arrived at 8.15am this morning and woke us both up, heating now in full working order and everywhere is too warm the windows have to be opened as its +8°C much too warm for this time of year.
IMG_0728.jpeg  I checked the 2019 diary, last year on the 17th of Jan I wrote in my diary, we have had very few days of minus temperatures this winter, it had been + 1° +2° or sometimes +3°, thats how we forget things as we get older.:frown2

Second problem, the internet didn't work even though I had done everything correct it would not connect when I pressed the WLAN button, email sent to Telecom, they called Monday morning and spoke to Heike, "you must press the WLAN" she did and it connected. :smile2:

Third thing, (not my problem), Heike heard from the insurance her car is a right off :surprise: she was upset of course, Jürgen is now trying to find a replacement of the same make.

Forth problem, the printer will not connect to the Mac through WI-FI so I now have a new arrangement with the printer on the same desk as the Mac connected with the USB cable.  Please can that be the end of problems at least for a while.

We find that whenever we go away for a few months Jan there is always something to ‘deal with’ when we get home. You will probably be fine now. 😁.

it is a shame about Heike’s car. I hope a replacement can be found without too much hassle.

If your place is anything like England then the proper cold weather is still to come, normally February and early March. At least your heating and internet re ready for what’s still to come.

That photo is of a set of manifolds jan it’s so you can adjust and bleed of the air from the underfloor heating. At least that’s how it works over here.

It´s all working OK now. It belongs to  a Valliant heating system, all very complicated, underfloor heating in the house and 2 radiators in the garage/workshop, hot water that has a pump so I have instant hot water. Those things Alan calls valves have nothing to do with temperature Puddle. I think Alan is correct,
there is a thermostat in each room and I can turn the water temperature up and down on the boiler. 

Would you believe I have cut the grass this afternoon, in places it was 9 inches or more long so poor little Motley could have trouble finding his ball and if the grass is a bit damp he would be soaking wet.   Now I have shoulder ache.

I saw a very old grandmother cutting hay with a scythe in austria years ago and the daughters loading it on an old wooden hay cart.

Now it´s just Motley and me in the house, I took Heike to the railway station this morning she will be at her destination station in a couple of hours. I hope she had a pleasant journey coz I treated her to first class. 
It´s been a lovely sunny day, just got back from walking Motley by the river, 2 more strollers there and that was it.

I was only thinking earlier today that all had gone quiet with you Jan. I knew Heiki was heading home, so I was hoping all was well. I bet Motley enjoyed his walk. It is sleeting here so you have the better weather! 😁

It is due to be -2 with us tonight Jan. Thank goodness our new boiler was fitted yesterday and today! It has been up and running now for an hour and the house is slowly warming up. 


The weather is due to be dry for the next four days, so we will also have clear night skies with lovely stars. I won’t be hanging around outside for too long to admire the stars though. 🥶
