Apparently the boiler is still working.
Unfortunately we've run out of fuel.
Cue more cold showers!
In my defence, the gauge on the side of the oil tank seems to not be working since it says we have a third of a tank left. Oh well, you live and learn.
The oil delivery should be here this week at least so that's something to look forward to.
And on the bright side, I discovered there was no oil before I phoned the plumber to come and have a look at it. So saving myself a bit of cash and some gentle mockery!
