    Around the corner are serial smoke damage people and they have been in a hotel since last September, yesterday there were workmen painting the outside, seems the fire people scratched it,lol.
    On a brighter note my number two son works for a company that goes in after the dehumidifier and makes good.
    He says it usually covers just about everything and he even puts up pictures and cleans the windows although he is a trained plasterer and tiler/kitchen fitter....good boy that he is xx

    oops went off tracke there, he is out in two to three days for a couple of rooms, its the paperwork that takes the time xx

    Sounds like your son is a good boy. I was thinking this about my DD today when she spread out all her shopping from Aldi to show my and her Dad how much money she saved.
    Just came back from the restuarant in the hotel OH came in to have t with me. Very tired going to sleep now. Night all
