Boiler deciding not to heat up for water.... sometimes, even if the heatings already been on. Always happens when the wife wants a shower.... therefor I get the earache.

I feel your pain, that’s the worst sort of earache ever.
Can only be paused by a trip to the pub, comes back when you get home but at least the senses have been dulled a little.

Today is fixing an extractor fan in a bathroom. had a quick look last night. It is supposed to come on with the light switch, and run on afterwards, so nothing new there. However, it sometimes stalls, then screeches, then runs normally, then stops.
It's a Manrose, judging by the front grille, but I couldn't get the grille off as it appears to be glued in. Returning today to investigate further. It's probably just worn out, worn bearing, whatever, and customer just wants straight replacement, no disruption etc. No isolator, naturally...
I'm not a "fan" of these extractors. Supposed to extract 85 cubic metres/hour, but frankly does nothing to clear the room. I don't know how you guys and gals test them for efficiency, but i just hold a single sheet of loo roll to the grille and see if it sticks! This one doesn't.
Tried to suggest options, centrifugal/inline etc but that would mean disruption, so is not a possibility.

Later, it's rewiring the exposed cables on a lathe. The existing cables are in a connector block screwed to the outside casing. The cables are far too long, in that about 6" of the incoming power cable has its sheath stripped off, and the connector block is exposed. I am thinking about fitting an adaptable box and relocating the connections inside there.

Not exactly exciting stuff...

I’ve never had an issues with that size fan for a ‘normal’ bathroom etc, and ‘average’ shower etc etc.

Either the ducting is poorly installed, blocked or not enough ventilation under door (if shut during use).

Could we start a rumour that something like sucking a Trebor Extra Strong Mint can protect you from the corona virus and see if we can encourage everyone to panic buy them?

Or a full EICR will ensure enough positive electrons in your house will ensure the germs can’t survive there?......a conscience is nice but business is business 😁
