Nearly finished it, Thank God!!

Lady owner, Occupied, junk in every possible place, 26 cats (cat litters & food everywhere), cement board in half of the house, plywood boards in the attic, all brick, micro-bore heating pipes everywhere, neigbours moaning about the noise & to top it off a BS951 clamp used on the sheath for TN-S.

The worst one so far this year, just having a rant.

Merry x-mas all.

Take the rest of the year off !

I had to connect a cooker in a "cat flat" the other week. 4 of them cooped up in a tiny flat all day. The stench was pervasive, I had to breathe through my mouth the whole time I was there. How you did a rewire in a cat hoard is beyond me.

Yes the smell was the worst part, I must have washed my hands a 100 times a day. It was a challenge I can say that.

Move the bloomin furniture.
Must have the power on, I want to watch Emmerdale.
Look at all the dust. I didn't think you'd make so much mess.
I need that bedroom this weekend, I have 10 people coming to stay.
And just as you have finished a room.....oh sorry, i meant to say we are having a wardrobe there now, can you move the socket to the other side of the room.

Grr grr. No thank you sir, got better things to do with my time.

I wonder who does all the lived in rewires? Perhaps they never get done. Somebody must be making a carp load of money, if no one wants to do them :)

I did stupidly. It would have been ok if the cats were not around & she moved everything like I had told her.

She got moving though after I told her it would be extra £ if I was to move it all.
