Warm again

It just so appears as if my heating problems were over. I did manage to acquire an oil-based heater in a supermarket, which hopefully means it's going to be more resistant than the last one. The burning smell is gone, too. Why these things are only available in July when it is supposed to be cold and not in May - when in fact the temperature dropped to near zero for the first time - is a mystery to me. There is nothing quite like bad logistics to keep life full of interesting little surprises.
