Well the conservatory fitters arrived this morning with the panels of glass. And hurray! they fitted - as you can see from the photo the vertical white line of plastic joiner lines up on all three (and in fact all the rest ) of the pieces of roof!
I can hardly believe it - after all these false starts they've finally got it right.
Mind you the story doesn't end there as they didn't bring the skirting board - grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Never mind at least Nigel can finally complete the electrics (that's what the pretty copper protuberances from the wall are waiting for) and our plumber can put in the radiators.
Then it's just this blessed skirting and some flooring and we can put furniture in and use the place - probably two months after it should have been completed. Now that all the glass is in place we should pay the third large installment of over £5000 ($9500) but having had all this hassle I'm just going to wait until it's asked for - let's see if their credit control/accounts department is as efficient as their order processing :o) It will be interesting to see!
This afternoon I've had two little people at home with me as neither Louise or Nick were well enough to go to school. Nick was proper poorly, Lou I suspect was coming out in sympathy for her brother but still not brilliant so I've been at home stitching the other 'heartstrings' blocks to go to Nancy. After making five in total I'm still not sure I like making these at all - I love the effect of them done but is it sufficient to make me sit there and stitch a load. I did have the germ of an idea for a Valentines Day wallhanging using them but I'm not sure if I can be bothered. I think I would have to get myself prepared with all the fabric conveniently cut in advance - we'll see.
Then the next job is those borders onto my scrappy hearts and stars quilt.
