Might pop over in the Learjet to get away from the soot. Or just move in to the west wing.

Coming at 5, oh he's late.


Going to stay calm and:

Ask him what happened
Say what problems it's caused and that the hearth isn't even level or cut straight and with costs of fixing everything we don't feel we should pay
Ask him what he proposes
If ridiculous or unnegotiable them we say that's way out and unless we get closer we'll end up using his public liability insurance or see him in court

Here's hoping he's adult about it.

Spent until 11.30 cleaning last night and just finished now cleaning all the bits. Teddies, clothes, baby bottles, nappies, pictures, toys etc sofas need professional clean, hearth is poorly fitted an all the wood, floor and three pieces of oak furniture have soot/tar spots in all the grain, even after hovering and cleaning.

You should no better never trust a builder... Did you not think to covering everything up before they started work

Bloke came, we talked like true gents, he accepted a blockage caused the dust sheet to blow out and he felt awful. He said would i accept it cost of materials and change the slate we dont like for free (our fault for not taking a sample) I said I'd pay for the labour to change it and stand the cost of sofa cleaning and floor/furniture cleaning. Ended up talking kids, squash and farming.

Amazing what an admission of guilt/accident from a genuine guy can get. If he'd denied and blamed everything else I'd now be claiming his PLiabilty and been in court.

I hate the way most people are today, but I guess many wouldn't have reacted as I did to his admission and screwed him over.

I stand by my decision. I like honesty.
