Some weeks on. The electric wiring is boxed into conduit. The walls are re-plastered and painted. the skirting boards have been replaced and all the woodwork repainted.
But the two desks turned out to have the wrong metalwork assembly delivered. we have the smaller size dsk and the larger size frame. After a week of telephone calls we have been promised replacements “within 10 working days”.
This still leaves the house full of displaced stuff and a half-built desk in the middle of the office.
And we are still waiting for the electrician to return and re-enable the socket that he disabled when fitting the new switch board under the stairs.
And only a month until Christmas. More “Ho-Hum” than “Ho-Ho-Ho” in this household.
