Just catching up on this thread and saw your video, Cheery. I echo Tony's comments. Wouldn't have known there was a problem if you hadn't let us know and you're definitely pretty. I hope you're coping OK with the discomfort of it all. So brave! :D

Cheery, sorry this is quite late but I offer a supply of hugs for the next half a year :)
I think that the video diary is a really sweet idea for others going through similar troubles, it's comforting to know you're not alone

I've come back to work for a rest.

Got new tenants in the flat upstairs. There were footsteps, hoovering and what sounded like carpet scrubbing on Friday, followed by a short burst of hammering at 10.50 on Friday night.

:roll:

Easter Sunday, I'm woken to the pit pit pat of little April Showers - from my kitchen ceiling.

She'd (a bit difficult to ascertain exactly as her English isn't too good - Eastern European from the accent) put the shower on, not put the curtains inside the bath, and walked away for some reason, and it had all come over the edge of the bath and down into my kitchen.

Luckily, most of it landed on lino.

:roll: :roll:

Yesterday morning I'm got out of bed by a knock on the door. "We've only one set of keys and have locked them in the flat, can you let us out of the front door please?".

:roll: :roll: :roll:

They then go on to tell me that they've had no heating for 4 days, and the hot water has packed up, tripping the fuse box.

That explains the loud pop I heard late one night.

:roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

Bluddy good job I didn't go to Dorset for Easter, eh?

Thanks!

To be fair, most of the water (luckily) landed on the lino in the kitchen, though some did splatter onto a patch of carpet.

It now means that I have to spend another £8.50 getting all the towels washed at the launderette, as well as my weekly wash.

They told me. Or rather he did, eventually.

He was nowhere to be seen at the time, and her English isn't as good as his.

That doesn't sound really good... :? but maybe they just need time to settle in properly and it will be better in a couple of weeks...
