Day 51 - FRAGILE

Sadly I seem to be in a fragile state of mind about a lot of things at the moment. Which isn't really me!

I have a huge problem with Picasa which seem to have a virus of it's own cropping any photos I download or scan and cannot solve the problem. It has also cropped and rotated 1,000's of photos in the programme too from 2006! (not all of them but selected what it fancied!)
Then there is Blogger whatever has happened to Google and blogger LOL!!

But my worst problem leaving my very fragile has been since our water leak 2 weeks ago and has continued to get worse with insurance claims, car insurance claims and finally the plumbing problem, 'the icing on the cake'!

Last Thursday, when a plumber arrived to do a HALF day's work but left his 2 'helpers' in their early 20's and disappeared and never came back to check their work! To add insult to injury his invoice was emailed to me on Thursday night as I was in full ranting at how our house had been left when they finally went after a FULL day here. The plumber finally returned this evening and is coming back on his own on Wednesday to sort out all the problems

Here are the photos of some of the things wrong

Left with big holes where they put new pipes above the ground. This is our lounge diner our only room, note we have no carpet!! The walls and skirting are still drying out
This is the modern way of leaving this ugly feature in the middle of the hall radiator for draining off water (it is being removed on Wednesday!) This has also been done on the lounge radiator too!

This is a hole in our back bedroom carpet which was made when they dragged one of the beds which I had been told didn't need moving during the day unbeknown to us!!

Under this carpet which had not been fitted back into place we found broken floorboard and splinters of wood, nails from taking the floorboard up and a black pug!!
This is my craft room carpet not been fitted back as it was!!

There were several other issues including radiator not moved to allow for boxing in the pipes and things left behind in the loft and header tank not covered again

Anyway roll on Wednesday so I may not feel so FRAGILE!


  1. It is a nightmare when things go wrong- hope it all gets sorted properly.

  2. Oh Lynne, I do feel for you! It was awful when we had our heating system replaced recently, so I kind of know how you're feeling. Hopefully it will all be sorted soon x

  3. Poor you.. just that, poor you x

  4. You're having a terrible time at the moment, Lynne. Sending you hugs.

  5. Lynne, I would quite understand why you feel so fragile, would think frazzled, angry totally fed up. Do hope by Wednesday all is sorted out for you.

  6. hello Lynne,
    thank you so much for your kind comments on my blog. I am so sorry for all the trouble you are going through. When it starts, it looks like it will never end, isn't it? I've been there with serious water damage and I know how it completely upsets your life. It will get better eventually, try and keep your spirit up. I hope you will be feeling better very soon. xxx
