    Oh Joan! How awful! The possible consequences are unthinkable.

    I hope the new boiler is fitted and working today and I hope you and Sue will live happily ever after :D - more or less :wink:

    That was a very kind and public-spirited thing to do, Joan. You might have averted something very nasty. I hope your new boiler arrives quickly.

    i'm very pleased that you didn't listen to the first chap. You must have had an inkling that it was a lot worse than he alleged.

    Well done on getting a new boiler too :P
