What a week

What a week ,,,,,nothing to do with my health ,,,,,as yet ,,,,but what a week ,,,,

I am a massive tennis fan ,and I've looking forward to watching the US open ,,,,,but no ,,,,the Sky box went wrong Monday ,,,,so no tennis until sky man came today and fixed it ,,,,today I am / was having a new carpet throughout down stairs ,,,, so bright and early son in law came to help hubby move furniture out into the garage ,,,,,and take up new carpet ,,,,all going well ,,,until last bit of carpet ,,,,,,,damp ,,,,,a leak ,,,

so rang ( b gas our cover ) They sent someone this afternoon ,,,,USELESS. Thank god my son in law stayed to help us sort things out ,,,,,he was showing the gas man where he thought the leak was ,,,,but know ,,,,he knew best ,,,,3 HUGE HOLES LATER !,,,one in the lounge ,,one in the hall ,,and one in the downstairs bathroom ,,,,,gas man said to S I L ,I think you were right ,,,,,,he fixed it and left ,,,,carpet man said he'd come another day ,,,,so we contacted our house insurance ,,,no problem with carpet claim

just excess of £ 350 ,,,,,nooooo ,,,,,,as for holes in walls ,,,,,we have to get 3 estimates ,,,carpet assessor can't come until 22nd ,,,,,it dosent end there ,,,,son in law returned tonight to bring in two chairs for us ,,,,,checked the leak ,,,,,,yes your right ,,,,still leaking ,,,,so ,,,gas man must return tomorrow ,,,,

Fed up ,,,,annoyed,,,,,grumpy ,,,exhausted,,,,and a hole lot more ,,,,I'm now in bed ,,,,wish I could stay in bed for a week ,,,I don't want another week like the last one ,,,,

  • Oh you have my sympathy I had a week like that 3 weeks ago and still not sorted out yet. When things go wrong the bills mount up so quickly no matter how careful you have been with insurance etc

  • I hope you get sorted out soon to ,,,,I just can't believe the £350 excess ,,,I thought it was £100 ,,,,but in the small print it clearly states water claims are £350 exses ,I will be shopping around when rental is due ,my sister had a water tank burst while they were away ,3 months work untold damage was told so far it would have cost her £15,000,,,,,,she only had to pay £100 exses,,,,,that's with the bank house insurance ,,,,,hope we both get our money's worth and sorted very soon ,goodnight ,

  • My sympathies,from an ardent tennis fan!
