We've had no heat for days. Were bad and let the oil level get low. And not even an emergency oil pack is allowing the boiler to cough up.

You can see your breath inside in the mornings. And our olive oil has congealed.

Have re-discovered the joys of vests and fingerless gloves.


But all hail King Padzor, for he brought home a borrowed halogen heater. Toasty!

Do the people you borrowed it off know this?

Well, it was given to me rather than borrowed from them.

Been -20°c here lately. I'm wearing long-johns and fingered gloves under my fingerless gloves. And that's with the heating on.

Letterox needs defrosted to get post in the mornings.

She started a knitting club here in Turku on monday nights in the Cosmic Comic Cafe (Beer and comics, yay!). I'm learning to knit there (as well as drinking Leffe and Kozel). I'm making a blanket for my elderly kitty. Well, it's turning out more like a worn-out fishing net but I don't feel it's bad for a first attempt....

I can see no reason why Jake can't learn too... though he might try harder than me to find an excuse.

Elder sister, newly online in London, politely requests baby sis scrake to provide update on recent activities. Depending on content may undertake not to tell mum and dad on you. Better make it amusing...
