    Good to hear you have had some more positive news after such a difficult and worrying time. I think tea and cake is still in order so being sent virtually to you both.

    So happy for you and Mr Cheery! 🎉
    And yes, I find dealing with tradespeople very tedious. They don't turn up when they say they will, jobs take longer than expected and delays are a regular occurrence. Maybe if it was predominantly a women's profession things would be more organised?  :D
