A bit of good news at last. Bear Scotland, the roads people, have told me that my pavement should be dug up in the next week and the pipework changed!!! Yey all my nagging has paid off. Hopefully this will mean no more damp in my hall and a new floor and wall to be decorated. We will wait and see as they have said they'll do things before and nothing gets done. I might be back ranting if they don't get a move on.
On a more colorful note I got on with a few more crochet projects last night. I've a throw to make and a few more birds. So much to do, so little time :)
