The day started off quite nicely with the boys sleeping until just gone seven, I should have known then!
I went to get Lucas dressed and found he had a bit of a nappy malfunction (if you know what I mean). Not to worry I thought, I will just pop him in the bath and then wash his clothes and put them on the radiator to dry.
So I sat Lucas on my knee while I was running the bath, the cold water was coming out and the hot water was not following. Meanwhile I was a bit of a mess too as Lucas had been on my knee. So I checked and the heating wasn't on either.
The boiler was flashing red which I thought was not a positive sign. So by then I established I had no heating or hot water.
I must admit I did start to panic thinking about drying clothes, having a shower, bathing the boys. Then Thomas started running around saying "oh no, whats happened?" which was kind of cute but not helping my stress levels at 7.45 in the morning. I couldn't get hold of Phil but eventually he called back and gave me a tip on how to temporarily fix it which I did so everything worked out ok but not a great start to the morning.
