many many thanks....now listen to my day.

We have had the builders in yesterday and today. We picked a reputable local firm which is well thought of in the city. British Gas did our worcester  combi boiler and they were great so we though 'You gets what yer pays for' and expected the same standard.

The work men (3 of them) were due to arrive at 8am, so we were up early. They didn't turn up until 10 and if God gave any of them a brain he robbed a rabbit. The first thing they did was plug their phones into our sockets to charge them, then the eldest one said '3 coffees love 2 sugars in all'.  I said 'Look here Junior, this is how its going to be: You work and if, at lunchtime, you have worked hard you'll get some coffee AND get your phones out of our sockets' Things went OK yesterday and to be honest they did a fair days work. Today they turned up at 8am and drank coffee from their flasks until 9am. Then they started. The first thing that went wrong was that they cut through our mains electric (don't ask) the second thing was when they drilled through a water pipe upstairs, but didn't know they had until  the ceiling came down in our hall cupboard. That's when my husband rang the boss and told him to get round here asp because our grounds for damages were growing by the second.

The job has been finished by another team from the same firm, much different set of men and the ceiling will be replastered at no expense to us (too bloody true) and the cupboard replaster boarded and painted when it has dried out and we are getting compensation for the whole horrid mess

I can't tell you how much this has made my day. It didn't feel like my birthday I can tell you

Oh Toots, what a day you have had! I hope the repair work is done as soon as possible and to a high standard.
