I’m finally getting my ceiling fixed but…… | April 27, 2009

As you may remember a short while ago my boiler leaked causing me a lovely flood and collapsing ceiling,well today a man from the council came around to inspect the ceiling again,it had been checked by one inspector then another came to do an asbestos test before any work could be carried out.
The man came and had a quick look and explained that the whole stair and hall ceiling would have to be replaced,but as the tests came back saying it contained asbestos it would have to be done by a specialist firm and my house contained and closed off whilst it was repaired.
I now have to wait for the specialist firm to make arrangements to do the repairs and find somewhere to stay whilst it is being sorted and also re-house nessa the rabbit,I may have ask the council to put me up in a local hotel or bed and breakfast for a few days as the children still have to go to school and college.
The only people allowed in my house whilst it is being repaired are asbestos specialists in full white suits it will look like a crime scene off CSI.
Isaac is going to pre-school later and I shall be doing my ironing and if I finish in time put my feet up with a drink and a few biscuits.

  1. What is really strange about the whole affair is that you still have asbestos in your house when they are gone. I mean, what’s the point of all the spacesuits and stuff if they let you right back into the house? It’s like they only care about THEM and not your family. I hope you can fine somewhere close to live while they mess about. Commuting is such a hassle.

  2. Deyank: thankyou I know its silly them in full gear as there is bound to be traces left behind.my youngest who turnedvtwo in January is severely and uncontrolled epileptic with autistic traits so a long commute on top of changing his routine isn’t going to be easy.

  3. I’m sure that you’re glad that it’s being done at last but not so welcome will be the upheaval in your life while it is!
    I hope that you had time to put your feet up and have a cup of tea and a few biscuits.
    Take care! xx
