A few people were having some technical problems with their
homes on September 24th.
Man came to do the drain which is blocked
(husband already unblocked at 12.43!)
- Boiler is leaking following earthquake on
Sunday night. Husband is away in London on training course so I tried to tackle
boiler with tea towel and what looked like a spanner. Failed dismally - think
I turned the bolt the wrong way! I must call an engineer!
- Breakfasted - porridge and toast with marmalade
whilst husband still trying to find a 'Corgi' registered plumber.
We have a Rayburn which heats water only, but no coal! They can't deliver
until next Monday
on my way round [the park] I noticed a plumber's
van and got his number but on returning home the doorbell rang and there stood
- a plumber. Husband managed to raise one. He diagnosed and said if he could
get the part he'd be back within the hour. He rang instead at 10.45 and
is coming after a job he is attending to.
- I telephoned 'faults'
about my friend's telephone which is out of order. They promised to come
in three days. Time was when they would come the same day. Progress!
