A little late in the day for a “good morning”
First job today, old lady phoned last night and says one of her bedroom heaters isn’t working, and the switch has a hole in it!....
A hole?

That’ll be the hole.

And the back of it isn’t much better...

I guess the switches have been in just about as long as that carpet.

Well done. Do you know your scores?

Good morning.
6:15 this morning, door bell rings.
Out of bed, no one there. Up now, so may as well walk the dog.
Come back and find my mobile had rang at 6:11, then a text at 6:12.

My next door neighbour... who has had More floods than Noah, has water running through the heat detector in his kitchen. (now making strange loud noises)
Ball cock in toilet above burst apparently.

Took the detector down for him, and will return when he gets the ceiling repaired again.
Will just charge for a new detector at cost price.... not charging my time.

Thanks, it was hard going, only 2 of us passed from 8. most ran out of time on the practical which then had a massive impact on their paperwork.

I scored 88.3% on the 2 hour 60 question exam, which i found harder than the homework papers and mocks we'd done. Pass mark was set at 75%.

I had 4 minors on my paperwork spread across the EIC & EICR, after a flawless test which i'm happy with. i was done testing in an hour and half and sweating bucket loads:sweatsmile:

needed 100% on the 4 short answers and visual inspection exams, which i achieved 2nd time round as had to resit a couple of my answers.

all in all, i'm happy with how i performed and can now see why so many people fail first time round.

Off to college so the missus' family will visit her, they hate me and yet have never met me...go figure.

After that try and get the bottom of which arse bandit hacked my Gmail/Facebook etc, secured it for now but I sense it's only a matter of time before it happens again. .
 
Nice quiet day for me. The wife is still in hospital after her hip replacement on Tuesday so at some point I'll have to go out and visit :confused: Daughter is over her boyfriends so it's just me and my son. We are off to a model show this morning (14 and just discovered trains!). Might fit the heated towel rail this afternoon that I've been threatening to fit for the last few years.

@Moley where are you going to a model show? One of my neighbours has a stall at some of these fairs and he’s away just now doing one.
Like how you said model show, then said trains.... maybe a Victoria’s Secret show ??

It's a local one to me in Pontypridd. Personally I would prefer a different type of model but the wife won't allow me to bring them home ;) Bought the boy a 2nd hand Hornby class 47 diesel. I'm really surprised how the build quality has gone down hill since I was a kid :mad:

I think my neighbour is at a big one at the NEC. He makes a living selling little model trees to model railway enthusiasts.

Dan I can't believe you're promoting and encouraging the use of children to unblock drains.....everyone knows they're better suited to crawling through floor-spaces and pulling wires!

So does retirement at times, morning Mate
Morning Pete, you could be right. I was planning on taking early retirement last year but chickened out of it as I would have been divorced by now 😂

Morning all.
Scaffolding job today as it’s not raining. On a Sunday as well.
No pay, as it’s my own Xmas lights.
 
Morning all,

Wet and miserable Monday morning here today. Glad I am not working outside. We put our Christmas lights up outside our house over the weekend so we are starting to feel festive :)

My sisters put their trees up this weekend🙈🙈🙈 I’m making my Mrs wait until at least the 1st until ours goes up. I’ve noticed she’s already started sneaking decorations into the lounge though😂👍

Waiting for a shipping container to arrive, ran out of space in my shed for stock, tools etc.

Will be starting a thread soon on shelving ideas. :D

Morning.
It’s fekken cold this morning and dog decides she wants a walk at 6am!!

I’ve got a little job this morning, new customers moving house soon, so have light fittings to take down and replace with pendants, and their garage to sort. He’s added taped joints all over the place. Looks like a rip out job.

Monday, I’ve got this to change....

And Wednesday... this one.

Apparently, the little warning sticker has been there for past 5 years!

don't sling those old CUs. Lucien might be interseted in them for his museum. also, there is a trainee on the forum wants an old CU to make up a practice board at home.

Yes. I thought about keeping one back for the trainee, but delivery might be a problem.

I would think Lucian might already have these. Quite common makes of board.

I’ve got an old wooden fuseboard in my shed somewhere. I’ll have to see if it’s still got all the bits.
