We were expecting a few things this morning. the engineer from Sky was coming to fit a new Sk6y+ box and set it up. We were also expecting a coal delivery too withy a couple of bags to see us through any more coolweather that we might have.In the event both happened at more or less the same time. Sky are very good at sending engineers out when they say they will, and he was due this morning at about lunchtime. Vin had spotted the lesser known Sky van bird at the bottom of our road so he thought he would be on his way and he came spot on time actually. Fitted the box, explained to Vin how to use uit and off he went. Quick job in the end because we already had the cable from the last bloke who fitted the new Sky ariel. Now we have the state of the art technology TV set up. Smart television, Bose sound box and the new Sky + box. Excellent. Of course little Rusty who is very nosy had to go into the Sky box when the man unpacked it. he said all the cats did that!
Used the last of the heating allowance on the coal delivery so any more now will be an extra. I wonder if we will get any more colder weather yet. Hope the rain keeps off and lets the poor people down South get their homes dried out.
Tonight we are having:
Pasta with a cheese sauce and mushrooms
A few carrots to go with or some green veggies,
A bit of garlic bread for Vin.
