No, they're not

Plumbers, that is. All the same, that is. Lukos is here. Toilet number one is fixed and toilet number two is being addressed as we speak. Lord knows, it will cost. But it's worth it not to have to put a rota on the toilet door this evening. We didn't want to have to insist on people booking in for a pee at 15 or 20 minute intervals during the evening, with only the possibility that those in significant personal relationships would be able to follow each other without flushing...thus speeding up the whole process.

I seem particularly adept at locating plumbers who are really good at not being able to fix our boiler and central heating. Usually it requires three of them every autumn to fail to fix it.

Well I am on the point, potentially, of being even more enamoured with tradespersons than I was. It looks as if a friend of a friend appears to have solved our electrician problem. That's something I am very excited about! Sorry to hear about your boiler. I used to have British Gas in the days when we had a boiler. Now it is overpriced underfloor heating... Anyway, there was once a time when there were four British Gas vans outside the house. And then one of them got stuck on the lawn. All very exciting.

We had British Gas in once. They chap came and told me he was subcontracted by British Gas and would have done the job for half the price if I'd gone straight to him. That didn't go down very well.

Imagine my surprise though upon going up into the loft after he'd finished and finding eight empty lager cans up there!

He could've at least saved me one!
