With Russia and Ukraine slapping each other over gas supplies, we've a little gas crisis of our own here in Hartcliffe! On a day that's led to the Bristol ferry being cancelled due to ice floes, we've just had a minor problem - a flat battery in the key meter - that has left us without any gas until the buggers come out to fix it. That's no heat, no hot water, no cooking ... and being a 'modern' house we've no real alternative. At my previous place I had electric fires, open fires and an Aga.
Oh well, it's all good practice for when gas runs out permanently. Are we bovvered? Well, yes actually ...
Serves us right for being soft.
