I'm really trying to be positive, but my mojo has taken a real dip today. The central heating system was drained so that they could re-route the pipe work and I've got no sink, cooker or washing machine.
The ceiling in the lounge was stripped off, and they found a bird's nest in there including a couple of dead wasps nests! How long they've been there is anyone's guess. Thank goodness there weren't any inhabitants, otherwise we would've had real problems!
On a more cheerful note - they plastered the utility and the end kitchen wall and made good the kitchen ceiling, so at least it's more constructive rather than destructive. I've got a workshop to prep for tomorrow and I need to find that mojo back!
Will be able to show you what we made after the event.
