M.I.A. and other disasters

Well as you all may have noticed (or perhaps you haven't!) Ive only been 'popping' in.  This has been due to several reasons but the latest catastrophe has been the gas log heater. It is the middle of winter here and the heater has now died (could have blown us up too due to it leaking gas beneath the still lit pilot light!) Luckily the Lord is looking out for us and we are still here, minus the heater. For those who live in Australia and are considering buying a gas log fire DO NOT buy one from Ultimate - plumbers and gasfitters will not service nor repair them (IF parts can be obtained, you're more likely to see brussel sprouts with wings) and Ultimate will put you through to a handyman (yes you read right) to do the service/repair. Luckily enough we have central heating also ...... it keeps the house warm but I sure do miss warming my buns in front of a heater! So now we have been hunting for a new heater with a strong reputation behind it. More than likely though we will wait till summer when prices will hopefully be cheaper and it also gives us time to get the $$$ together.

Other than Ants and illness life is slowly getting back on track so I will hopefully be here more.

Compared to what disasters CAN happen in life all the above are just minor hurdles that we all come across once in a while and they are eventually resolved, so this has really just been a rant and a rave to vent some steam! Thanks for reading/listening :)

On a side note a couple of new homes should be available at the end of the week.

Best wishes to all

Of course we noticed! That sounds like an awful run of bad luck! I've had issues with ants lately, but at least that was the only mini-disaster I had to cope with, even if it was expensive. I'm glad to hear that things look like they are taking a turn for the better \:D

Oh Kaz, get it off your chest! \:P That really was so lucky that nothing sparked the gas leaking out. \:eek\: I will keep in mind about the brand too. Lucky you have the central heating otherwise you would have been freezing down on the MP. I hope things are looking better for you now. I look forward to your new lots. \:\)
