No further movement on the damp problem. I failed to get hold of my loss adjuster on Monday or Tuesday, on Wednesday got hold of him and he told me that the builders hadn't sent through their estimate (despite it having been a week) - so I phoned them, got a secretary, and was told it would be taken care of immediately. Phoned back today, but no reply. *sigh*
But tomorrow poisonduk
helps me pick up tiles for the new bathroom I'm having put in, next Tuesday the bath/sink/toilet arrive, and two weeks from now I'll have a new bathroom installed. If the damp can also be fixed by then I'll be a very happy Andy.
Meantime, Julie and I are working our way through Mad Men series 1, which is fantastic (if depressing a fair chunk of the time). We just finished episode 6 over takeaway Italian, which was lovely. And I'm about to put 130 VHS tapes into carrier bags to take to the charity shops, then do some sorting and tidying around the flat in an attempt to have it be slightly more livable until it's sorted.
And then, I think, another episode of Mad Men (or more of season 1 of TNG, which acts as the anti-Mad-Men), followed by an early night.
