Hot Water and Pumpkins

On Friday we had our new boiler installed, everything went pretty well except for the fact one of the engineers broke the test nipple off our gas meter (yes I said nipple.) So on Saturday someone from The Gas Board had to come out and replace our gas meter. So with that all done we just have to wait for the correct timer for the boiler and it will all be done. So we enjoyed a rather lovely hot bath last night. It is a novelty to have to actually put some cold water in because the water is so hot!

The new boiler – with pipes yet to be boxed in!


Today we carved pumpkins. This is not a tradition I have done since I was a kid as Halloween wasn’t a thing we did, my parents were pretty much against Halloween so I never went trick or treating or did pumpkins. Now that I am married with a stepson this is something we tend to do every year. I’ve never been all that fab at carving a design but I thought I would try a bit harder this year. We got out the craft knifes and got cracking (or carving.)

So in amongst the multitude of times Mini C kept telling us what his favourite part was of doing pumpkins (varied between carving out the middle and squishing his hands in all the seeds) and asking us if we liked the smell of pumpkin about a million times, these are what we came up with…

And mine…


This also means I have got my husband’s camera out so photos of my latest makes will be taken tomorrow!

  1. Yeah I think my first couple of years of pumpkin carving were pretty standard but I wanted to try something a little different. I was really paranoid about making a mistake and ruining it, but thankfully I worked carefully!
