Describe your week by naming a song title or some lyrics of a song!  I'm thinking.........

    Vacuum cleaner broke first, then the iron, plumber couldn't find the leak in toilet, but spotted blocked main drain, drain cleared for 2nd time in a month, now waiting for engineer as they think it may have collapsed, but I still have a leak somewhere in the toilet.

    This follows on from the replastering that was needed a few weeks ago in the toilet, when the plasterer managed to block said drain with plaster dust and pulled the door frame off.  Carpenter had to come and nail the frame back on and chunks of the new plaster subsequently fell off!
