In my own defence, I hadn't touched my machine since my last post, so maybe it's not too bad? One thing's for sure, it can only get better!
On another topic altogether, about 2 months ago we (OK, I) decided that we should really have our en-suite revamped and made a bit safer for Mr Fixit, so, design agreed, quote agreed, start date agreed, what could possibly go wrong? Well, if I tell you that 6 weeks from the start date, it's still not finished, you'll understand why I'm tearing my hair out. It all went well on week 1 and the first couple of days of week 2. By the way, this is only a small en-suite and the whole job should have taken 8 days. Then, we had to wait for a plasterer. Really? Sorry bathroom company but should you not have got this job scheduled better than that? 6 days we waited for the plasterer. Then the electrician had to follow on to do his thing with the shower pump, the new lights and the extractor fan. When he left early in the afternoon he said the plumber would be in later to connect the water and then we could use the shower. Whooppee, we thought. Silly us. The plumber didn't turn up so Mr Fixit turned the water back on and went to have the inaugural shower. Bit of a problem here - it leaked from the water flow control, and I don't just mean a bit of a drip I mean water under pressure. Still, we were both determined to have showers that night so we carried on. Next problem - we could only have either hot or scalding water, the cold didn't seem to be working and the water would only come from the small hand-held shower head and not from the lovely big rain shower fixed head. Oh, and by then I had realised that they'd fitted the wrong extractor fan. Next morning, first thing, guess who I was on the phone to? To give the company their due, the boss was with us within half an hour. He fixed the leak, he fixed the cold water but what he couldn't do was fix the flow from the large shower head. It turned out that we needed a different pump so off he went to order one. A couple of days, he said and he also promised that the extractor would be changed when they fitted the new pump. Two weeks passed with almost daily calls from me to them until finally, yesterday, the boss called to say the pump was being delivered that day and he's be up on Monday to change it himself. We'll see. I can tell you I'm not holding my breath though.
I had planned to have our downstairs cloakroom revamped next, but right now I don't think I can face that!
