Electricians [Oct. 16th, 2002|03:25 pm]

Well, isn't it fun. When I looked round my house, the landlord said "we need to replace the electrics in the house. Hopefully that'll be done before you move in". Unfortunately, builders being builders, the electricians didn't arrive until Monday.

On the plus side, these are super-electricians. Electricians on steroids. Electricians who would be shunned by other builders for working too much and drinking too little TEA.

Yup, they arrived on Monday at 8:30, and by 9 had the floorboards up in 2 rooms. Came back for lunch and hardly recognised the place. By the evening, they'd tidied up (apart for the thin layer of dust over everything I own....), and repeated the same thing ever day since. While it looks like they might just finish by Friday, we're inhaling dust and brushing it off everything until then...

In other news, research is going OK (not doing much, apparently doing enough)

Oh, and I've decided not to write about the weekend before last here, on grounds of not duplicating reports. So, instead, you can read about it here
