Flat update

So, the joiner was supposed to arrive today to start replacing/repairing joists. And he turned up on time! Woohoo!

Of course, having arrived, he took one look and said "That's too damp for me to work on."

I actually phoned the builders 10 days ago to ask what was happening about dehumidifiers. And they delivered one last Friday, having popped round first, and told me I didn't _really_ need one, but what the heck, they'd give me one anyway.

It didn't actually work though - it even has "Not Working" written on top in marker pen. So I phoned them back on Monday and told them.

Cue a complete lack of them delivering a working one.

*sigh*

So, it'll be sucking moisture out of the walls until Monday, and then hopefully the room will be ready to be actually fixed.

Chances of it actually being finished before I go away next Friday...slim.
