Blog from the Dogs: Winter’s coming

Keep warm: Winter is coming

S: We shouldn’t be shivering this much Ted

T: You’re right, we shouldn’t be shivering at all.

S: What? Don’t look at me, I don’t have thumbs!

T: As if that’s an excuse.

S: Look let’s not argue, neither of us checked that the heating works, and you’re just grumpy because you’re cold.

T: Hmmph

S: What we should have done, is this:

  • Turned on the heating system
  • Turned up the thermostat, and pretty quickly the boiler should have kicked in
  • Open all the radiator valves so they’re fully on
  • Within half an hour to an hour, the radiators should be hot

T: And if they aren’t?

S: Then contact the Maxine Lester team ASAP so they can sort out a repair before everyone in the UK finds out their boilers aren’t working, and plumbers become rarer than rocking horse manure.

T: Ah, so if I give the office a ring then….

S: I’ve already done it, and we’ve got a plumber coming to mend the boiler imminently.

T: Hooray! That means we can soon ditch the woolies.

S: That’s a shame, they were just growing on me. And yours really bring out the colour in your eyes.
