This is an excerpt from the post over on the Secrets of Grindea main website detailing what’s been going on late last year and the first week of 2023. If you’ve followed this blog you already know most of this, but here it is anyway:
Happy New Year everyone!
Have you had a nice holiday? Mine was unfortunatenly cut short very abruptly. On christmas day I got a phone call about the heating system back home breaking down, meaning we had to leave celebrations and go back home to the island to make sure it was taken care of.
We were lucky and unlucky – there’s no fixing the heat pump (it’s 100% dead), but at least we managed to avoid severe water damage through sheer luck as someone was present just as a radiator quite literally exploded and started pumping water into my bedroom.
So, instead of celebrating the holidays with loved ones we’ve spent most of the time talking to the insurance company, documenting damage, trying to get a hold of people to fix things – apparently it’s not easy getting hold of anyone in the middle of the holidays, who would have thought!
We still don’t know how long it will take before the heat pump is replaced or exactly how much it’s gonna cost (probably a heck of a lot), but at least we have some heat (although very expensive one through only electricity for now). It’s safe to say 2023 will start with one massive bill to cover for all of this, and to make matters worse we’ve been hit by a cold and haven’t been able to get back into the office until now.
Unfortunately that means no weekly recap for this first week of the year, but hopefully everyone will be able to be back at the office today (fingers crossed).
Thanks everyone for your continued support!
Now, onwards! 🙂
