  • Mood:


Work on the deck is proceeding slowly; workmen were only here on three days out of five this week due to illness. I have to leave downstairs unlocked for them as they need access to power and I requested yesterday that they phone me if they're not going to be turning up, so I know not to leave the house unlocked. They must have taken it to heart as I got home last night to find the downstairs screen door had been locked but the key was nowhere in evidence. A half-hour search by torchlight still failed to turn up the key so finally I rang the builder to see if he could ring his subbies and find out where the key was. He was concerned, as usually the boys won't answer their phones on the weekend, but eventually he got one of them to pick up and was able then to ring me back and tell me where they had hidden the key. It was somewhere I'd never have looked! At least it spared me from having to break the lock in order to get in and feed my downstairs cats.

Meanwhile this sign is gracing my front lawn. I told the guys yesterday that they really should ask for their money back.
