April fools and picnic in the park.

Yesterday was a bit of a disaster. The men came to put up the rest of the conservatory but after two hours struggling in the drizzle with the windows and frames they realised the base had been built out of true! So they called the foreman and the foreman called the surveyor (who'd already o.k.'d it!) and he called another builder and they stood in the drizzle and shook there heads and finally they decided the whole thing must come down again and be built from scratch! April fool!
If only it was. Hazel took it quite well considering, as she was looking forward to layin the tiles tomorrow and moving her workbench in - but it seems it may take un til the end of April now before that happens.
Today we went for a nice walk and had a picnic in Marbury Country Park. The bluebells weren't quite ready yet though there were a few dotted around. We'll have to go back in a couple of weeks to see the woods in their true blue-belly glory!
The new bridge over the canal is quite impressive and painted black and white like the old buildings of Northwich. It connects Marbury to the other new stretches of parkland that go to town and joins up with Carey Park.

Sorry to hear about shed.

The bass has to be true.

And the drums in time...

Don't shed too many tears.

No tears shed about the shed Roger.
It was almost comical..I have never seen so many builders in my garden looking at a brick wall before!
AND
they kept asking for Michael to talk to him even though its my bloody shed and michael didn't care.....
mutter mutter mumble......

I do care but probably look as if i don't. I can't help it if they want to speak to the man of the house!

Roger Stevens said...

But why would they want to speak to Archie?

This sounds a bit like Basil Fawlty trying to get a door moved (or whatever it was). I'm sure that they'll sort it out, but it must be maddening...

The Mad Hatter, it sounds! Hazel took it like a champ I do say. But, in the end hopefully a building that stands. How could they have been so careless..it IS their job. Oh well, not too long a delay...and place for those new inventions. Meantime, Man of the House...raise the eyebrow and look discerning. And make them knock down the price for their fumbling! Else, you'll sic Flo on them.

I didn't mean that Michael didn't care..just that he seemed to think it was an April Fools joke that they kept wanting to speak to him all the time.(I am quite capable of taking in information about incompetance.)
Not heard from them since...
If I was the builder I would be embarrassed to show my face and sneak round in the night to knock it down.
Out of all the things I worried about this one never came into it...
