IN A BATHROOM FAR,FAR AWAY.................................
I couldn't make this up if i tried. i was sitting reading the paper this afternoon, when a contractors van pulled up outside,knock on my front door,it was the decorator. he was doing a job at the next village,had called in to give door and woodwork a coat of primer,and was going to call in on his way back home before he left off to undercoat. was that ok?? yessss. lets get this over with. i've decided to paper the hall side of sliding door to match hall paper,won't be so noticeable. be all finished by tomorrow,coming back to gloss. all done. except.
there i sat,all aglow,ready to paper weekend,maybe before,nice clean new sliding door. when he tapped on lounge door and stuck his head round. i think you had better come and look,said he,i cant paint that. so,with a certain attack of oh hell here we go again's i followed. he had primed door,and when he slid door back to fully open, IT SCRAPED IT OFF AGAIN. the bloody door is warped,it's bowed out in the middle. it's a cheap ply faced hollow door,with a honeycomb inside of cardboard,and obviously the ply on the inside of bathroom is coming away. whether damp has got in under where it was routed out for door guide,is faulty,i can't say. but the painter was right,if it did that to 1 coat primer,what is it going to do to coat undercoat and gloss. he has reported it to carpenter,who is going to see about new door as soon as he can.
I also sent email to A, boss of housing association. i bet she opens emails from me as though they will explode. this one did. that is now 3 doors, carpenter told me he took the first one back to yard,and threw it into skip,complete with hinges,catch. what a waste. along with the heap of rubbish he took off last week,now this. i am not happy. oh you guessed lol. good job i can still laugh. isn't it??? oh well,i can shut it ok still,just scrapes a bit. will do until replaced.
on a happier note, the ducks were back. i got some bread and went and sat on seat near pond, they both still must remember me,both took from my hand, just nearly lose fingers lol. 2 hungry ducks. will buy some food tomorrow for them. lovely to have 2 wild birds trust me enough to take food from my hand.with no fear.
yep that is them lol.. just thought you may like to see them.
