There was something

I know there was something, but I'm blowed if I can remember what it was I was going to drone on about this morning.  I had it all thought out as I walked through the park with the dog, but now...

Anyway, I have succeeded.  You know how difficult it can be to find somebody to do those little DIY jobs that are just to much for you?  Jobs like putting up a blind or fixing a leaking tap, re-hanging a door or repairing a pipe.  Well, I have finally found someone to do just that sort of job, the little jobs that so many builders don't want to now about.

It started last Thursday evening when I backed the car down the drive after a Lions' dinner meeting.  A gust of wind blew our neighbours wheelie bin part way across our shared drive and in trying to avoid it, I clipped the opposite front wing of the car on the outflow pipe from the boiler.  The scratches in the car paint should polish out OK, but the pipe was broken.  Over the weekend I glanced through a freebie local magazine and saw the ad: no job too small, it said.  Assembling flat-pack furniture and all sorts of jobs like that.  I rang on Monday and Geoff turned up yesterday and did the job, siting the pipe above car level so I won't hit it again!
