Deputy head of the Kyiv Administration Oleksandr Popov has announced the central heating will be turned on today.
Heating is usually turned on during the middle of October but as it is colder than usual for the time of year city authorities have graciously decided to fire up the boiler early.
My Dad would have never caved in so easy, “put another jumper on if your cold you pussy and turn the lights out while you at it.”
Schools and hospitals will be heated first. Radiators in residential buildings will start working later in the month.
Last Christmas I spent two weeks in hospital while they did their level best to bugger up an appendectomy. One appendix, three operations, seven holes and all with no central heating or hot water.
How I laugh now!
