Emptied of expectation. Relax.

It's not my day. It really isn't. The fireplace men got 1/3 of the way through opening up my chimney when they found that someone had run electrical wiring under the plaster about half a foot from the floor horizontally across the chimney opening and plastered it over. Cue all work halting.

We hunted for the wire but it disappears into the wall between the livingroom and bathroom and never comes out again so we've no idea what it's for. In the end, it's decided that they'll finish opening up the hole (being careful of the wire) and tomorrow an electrician will come for a look, after which there will be a conference to decide what to do now. So I have a hole.

I did a bit more work and then realised that if I wanted any of Damians cake (10 years!) I'd better head for the office. Out I head in my bike and poncho (for rain is just beginning). By the time I'm at the Donnington Bridge road it is absolutely chucking it down with hail. I actually have to pull up so I can protect my face from the stinging.

Finally I got here and there was cake and there'll be drink and dinner later but still. Not my day.
