Well, the rewiring's done, at least the largest part of the house which doesn't include the kitchen; see previous entry. Gary came on his own yesterday, as Luke was at college for the day, and finished everything off. I now have a spanking new fuse-board that looks like something out of the Starship Enterprise and equally as baffling. It's almost a shame to hide it away in the cupboard under the stairs.

It's been an on-going saga, this house business. I'm thinking of giving the house a name, on a plaque outside the front door. Its name will be "Forth Bridge".

In the last 3 years, forgetting about all the years gone by, this house has had new central heating, a new kitchen, new French doors in the sitting room, new porch doors, new back door, a new roof on its garage and now - the Piéce de Résistance - its being electrically rewired. Oh boy!

The electricians started a week ago. Well, I say Electricians, it's really an electrician and a half, Gary and his apprentice son, Luke. They know their stuff. They are polite, professional, they get on with the job, it's going well but it's MESSY.
