One Seal Away

The question is not what you look at, but what you see - Henry David Thoreau
Welcome to my Thursday.
I enjoyed a cup of tea in bed..↓
 I gave my hubby a sloppy 💋 before he left the house.
I got up soon after,
As the Plumber was coming to check the 13 year old boiler.
The washing machine went on..
Followed by coffee and vitamin C↓
 The Plumber came early.
Do you want the bad news?"He asked
I replied,"It can't be as bad as me not winning the Lottery last night!"
One seal had perished on the boiler, 
The remaining seal could go and fumes could leak from the boiler.
So he disconnected the boiler from the gas.
They have to source a new part for the boiler.
Until then, we have no hot water.
I was hoping for new boiler...
No chance...
The boiler is slowly being rebuilt with new parts! 
 Hopefully the part will come soon...
One my kids went to fetch the newspaper for me..
I went outside to get some fresh air...
 The washing machine went back on.
Now to put a third coat of paint onto our bedroom door..↓
I left to that dry.
Now to paint the toilet door↓
I left it to dry.
 I got some nice stuff to use at work↓
 I went to work,
Leaving two washing machine loads to dry on the line.
While I looked out of the window..
I saw the rain come down....
(I had left my coat at home)
I had lovely wet t-shirt when I got home.
Oh dear, I can't have a hot shower....
I have got no hot water!
We got the washing off the line,
They will have to go back in the washing machine tomorrow! :( :(
 While having chicken with rice.
I watched more:
While hubby and kids went to do my dad's shopping.
I went to work with some great music..↓
 Gets back before hubby↓
We watched more Louis.  

A Different Brain

Louis Theroux

Louis takes a look at the issues that some of the estimated one million people in the UK living with the long-term effects of a brain injury have to deal with.

Louis spends time with staff and service users at the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust, one of the UK's largest providers of neuro-behavioural rehabilitation, in an effort to understand how individuals and their families come to terms with this life-changing condition.

Often called a 'hidden disability' because those affected can show little physical signs of change, acquired brain injury results in enormous cognitive, behavioural and personality challenges. Those affected are left to reconstruct who they are - from relearning the basics of walking, talking and eating to redeveloping complex personality and behavioural traits, often in the shadow of who they once were. Family members are often caught between grieving for the loved one they have lost and learning to love the person they are now.
It was sad and thought provoking.
Off to bed....
As I will have loads of Friday Feeling 🎈 to burn off tomorrow!
