Hope the new boiler appears soon and you can be warm. I lived with a broken boiler for 2 years and remember how hard it was to dry washing and ensure warmth with a couple of electric oil heaters.
What a massively productive day, @Onebrokelady. Here's hoping that the wretched boiler problem will be sorted soon, now that you have someone coming to look at it.Agree re emergency funds. It is pretty grim how quickly they evaporate in the face of an expensive necessity. I'm sure you will be motivated enough to have a frugal year. You will feel better seeing your fund build up again. At least your new boiler should have a decent warranty period, so that is one expense that shouldnt occur again for several years.Anyway fingers & paws crossed here that you will soon have the problem resolved.F x
Hope the boiler is done now .
There’s a trick to extend them
