Just about to have me dinner and get a call out to no hot water, kiss the kids goodnight and look forlornly at my plate as I leave the house, customer has pleaded for it to be sorted tonight as it’s only on off peak immersion and they must have hot water in the morning. Arrive at the house and go through the standard what happened and they tell me they heard the tank boiling so turned it off and haven’t had hot water since. Thermostat fried so simple fix but during the conversation they told me when they turned it off ......................2013!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I lost my dinner for this ????

Maybe they were being put under pressure to have a bath. :)

It goes;

breakfast, mid morning snack, brunch, elevensies, lunch, your 3 oclock, dinner, tea, supper, midnight snack. But not always in that order.
And chips. At any time between those set meals.

Posh hotels do say dress for dinner ..... not tea
I think posh hotels would like you to dress for ANY meal. Not just dinner.

Starkers for breakfast?

my old dad used to say:
"if it's not broke don't fix it. if you can't fix it with a hammer, it's an electrical fault. and if a bent nail can be straightened, why buy new?"

and he made wall plugs by whittling scrap bits of wood; cable clips from a bit of scrap aluminium, cut, nailed, and and wrapped round cable.
the straightened nails were sorted according to size and type and stored in a collection of old jam jars.
