    I had a bad day today with my house renovations. The builders started about 2 weeks ago and have steamed ahead with the decorating. The kitchen was delivered last friday and they started on it yesterday. I popped in at lunch and the chap asked me to get tiles for it. Now I last bought tiles when we had our shower put in about 12 years ago and I have no idea about prices or delivery times. He said he wanted the tiles by tommorow so of I trotted to the tiles shop next to my office. They told me I had a budget of 12-14 per square metre said he had one tile for £15 per square metre but otherwise they were upwards of £30.00. So I phoned the builders and told them I found it strange that the quote said £20.00 per square metre but now it was £12-14?
    My contact there said she would contact the insurers and I said i would go to Topps this morning to look at them. Anyway I decided on tiles from the shop next door and as he dropped the price by nearly £10.00 per square metre and I have 2 to choose from ( what I narrowed it down to). So I went back to the house and the chap doing the kitchen got really stroppy as he said it would mean he would not be able to come next week and the contractors may not be able to find him work. I told him its a shame no one bothered to ask me last week to source the tiles and they now wont come till next friday. I left the house and rang the office girl nearly in tears as I told her it was not my problem and I had managed to get the price down to a reasonable price but delivery time was not my problem.
    I went to my daughters on way to the hairdresser and she had to give me some rescue remedy as I could feel my blood pressure going up.
    Also my car failed its MOT a few weeks ago so I contacted my dealer friend and got a little Dawoo Matiz very cheaply and now the clutch has gone!!

    I am So So angry IO know in the greater scheme of things happening at the moment it's not important, but someone trying to pull the wool/ diddle my Mum is really upsetting.

    Haven't trusted her gardener for a bit, a few weeks ago took a load of Sandstone (as he was clearing a bit of the garden - more like decimating it) and said he was taking it to the tip - No Way.

    Then he said she had mice in garage - checked it, no sign of mice - put bait down etc, not touched, but he still insists he keeps finding live mice and they are chewing things, haven't worked what he is up to there.

    Couple of weeks ago he said her hedge trimmers had packed in and could I
    get some new ones.
    Took mine which have only been used twice. He used them last week, then today said they weren't working :eek :when he got them out.
    I asked to look at them and the wire had nearly been cut through.
    When I said so, he said, no must have been the mice, Couldn't I see where they had been chewed ? NOT IN A MILLION YEARS.
    Said nothing to Mum because she has told me to stop complaining to her about him as it upsets her too much.

    Next thing, there's a crash outside house, neighbour doing a U-turn hit a motorbike - police and ambulance called. Couldn't believe it when police said there would be no further action, just an incident number for insurance. Bike driver refused hospital, though hurt, and recovery vehicle came to take bike away.

    Gardener comes to get paid and tells Mum about "mice" chewing wire of hedge trimmers.
    Now Mum is Old, In Poor Health and Very Frail, but even she says it doesn't look like mice. Gardener insists it is, as otherwise he'd of got an electric shock. I tell him No because it's a fuse board with safety features (can't remember what they are called)

    About an hour after he goes I decide to check freezer in garage - and it's OFF Check fuse box and it's tripped for the circuit where he plugs into in the garage.

    So lucky I checked it, otherwise 6ft high freezer contents all ruined.

    I agree entirely mhoc, and with LEJC who also said similar earlier.

    Off the top of my head I know we have doctors, dentists, accountants, business managers, environmental professionals, talented students and trainee lawyers, and I'm sure we can add more to the list. All doing their bit for the health and prosperity of others.

    And they are all happy, buoyant and looking ahead. It would be one amazing party if they all got together!



    Hopefully we will all be kept handsomely in our old age...
