|I Wouldn't Have Bought It

The thermostat for the boiler is in the kitchen which means that when you put the cooker on it heats the kitchen up a treat and all the radiators in the rest of the house go cold. I had the kitchen doors open yesterday afternoon- with the rain bucketing down outside- in the hope that the boiler would fire up and warm my mother in the living room.|
No-one ever really thought this house through. It's a 19th century farm cottage with bits tacked on haphazardly. I thought of adding, "that's its charm" but it isn't a charming house- (it's not pretty or quaint- there are no bare beams or fireplaces you could stable a pony in)- just an inconvenient one. There was a guy sniffing around the other day- we got a phone call, then a letter- saying how he'd like to be informed if we ever put it on the market- and I found myself telling him how he really wouldn't want to live here.
