Before driving to Peakville, I phoned cousin Naomi. She told me that she was worried about the central heating that her housing association had installed while she was in hospital. She was worried about the running costs, and did not know how to operate the controls. I suggested to her that I could pay her a visit and see whether there was anything that I could do to help.
She agreed to the visit!
Somewhat to my surprise, when I arrived at Peakville I found that the Old Man’s house had not frozen up.
