I have scaffolders, roofers and a lovely young man replacing seven radiators. I am surrounded by men - DD likes this. :D

    OK I have dropped everything and am on my way. Leave one for me, please :D (Preferably, a scaffolder. I could use a bit more scaffolding :wink: )

    I don't think you should, Barbara. I'm only thinking of your poor back - and the rest of us 8)

    What a vision. Have they had to remove shirts yet? Enjoy but I hope they are tidy workers. Are we going to get pics? I think you should share after all we don't want you over doing things again.

    I have made nineteen mugs of tea (including one for me) and one coffee. I have also served flapjack. One shirt has been removed but there's no 'phwoaaaar' factor. :( The roofers are still in situ but should finish by early afternoon; scaffers have left but should return later this afternoon to remove their magnificent erection. The young lad installing the radiators is very neat and tidy - his vacuum is going on a regular basis and the area around the first two replaced rads is immaculate - probably cleaner than he found it. :oops:

    I must go and fire up the kettle again. This is tiring but necessary methinks. DD

    The magnificent erection is still in situ as are the roofers: I suspect it's time for more tea, Vicar. :wink: I am shattered but the new garage roof is looking fabulous. My rad lad is off now to finish another job but he has replaced five of the seven - tomorrow he will do the last two then fire-up the system to make sure all is watertight and working.

    I am very pleased that No.10 is being repaired in this way: bathrooms next and then re-roofing the bulk of the place, we have tiles falling off left, right and centre which is not good. DD

    I am down to just the one man, the lovely rad lad. He has finished installing the new ones and now the boiler is filling. Some treatment will be added to clean through, then the heating switched on to test etc. If all is OK he will drain the system and refill with added protector to help slow the development of limescale.

    By the time the roofers left I had made 35 cups of tea (including one or two for me). I am still waiting for the scaffers to return so I can't go out because I don't know when they are coming and they will need access to the garden - I don't fancy leaving the outer gate unlocked when I'm not at home. Mind you, after yesterday's exploits I don't want to go far - bed sounds far enough. :wink: It's time for another cuppa. DD

    That's why she's so tired, Joan. It wasn't making the teas, it was running up and down the scaffolding with them :wink:
