We got lots of good threads in this section, just thought of this one, the point of it I suppose (or hope) is to amuse and/or make each other have a laugh.  Good luck with all your contributions.

Got post early today... BT bill... But not in my name or telephone number... but is my address.
The name on it has never lived here.. as the house is just over 3 years old and I know the first and only other family to live here..
Phoned BT and they said the number is live and connected to my address and has been since 2005... do I have a secret basement & tenant I do not know about?

 Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

BT rang the number and surprise surprise there was no answer.. Undecided

Just had one of those survey companies on the phone...
Said it'd be a 5 minute survey and all I had to say is YES.. PASS.. Don't Know.

I just said PASS to every question...lol  cheered me up.. 
Survey only lasted 2 minutes as he gave up...  Grin

Mystery solved...  the bill is for next door.. the other side of the semi.
I rang BT again to give them the address and make sure they contact the number to change the details.
Next door said they haven't had a bill for ages and that they have asked several times for the address to be corrected.

But does make you wonder why my address was given in the first place.. as that number was first used when the houses were built..  maybe they thought they were getting this house and jumped the gun with BT.   Undecided

All is quiet again, kids asleep Wifes looking for antique style mixer taps on ebay along with worktop, we are just about to change the kitchen in the house.  The current one is a horrible 70's job with those terrible aluminum strip handles which either fall off or draw blood often

The kitchen in my house is one from the 70's, dark blue faced chipboard with that horrible (and rather dangerous) aluminum handle on the edge.  Got the makings of a replacement kitchen of ebay for �82.  Thats what I will be doing for the next several weeks Shocked Taken 3 months to find suitable units without having to drive half the country for it.  Bidders on ebay can be absolutly nuts with their money sometimes though.  Highest price paid while I've been looking was over �900 - just for units Huh?
Will have to rebuild many of them, cant get away with changing the doors around as the old ones are an inch wider........it will take weeks!!!!

Just spent 2 1/2 hours in garage going thru about 14 boxes left of stuff still packed from move. Now know that most of it can be binned... especially as I have now found the most important bits.. Birth certificates and license.
Had to find the paper part of my drivers license so I can hire a van for work 2moro. Got to admit.. wouldn't be funny going in 2moro morning and telling them that I couldn't do the job I agreed to do.  Tongue
Luckily I do not have to pay for it or any fuel.. Tesco are paying for it all. I will be delivering goods between 15 stores from penzance to axminster and all between.

If I can swing it, might pop in and say HI ! to GT Gary if I've got a drop at Newton Abbot.
Gonna be fun as I know first run is Redruth Extra , drop off at Axminster.. then Exeter to Plymouth....
It's 2 hours to Exeter from me.. another half hour to Axminster.. if traffic is good.
So a round trip of 5-6 hours just on that run and got to get another in on way back ISH too.
Good thing is.. the hours they've given me I will only be driving for 3 days.. then 4 days off.. then 3 days in normal shifts then off for Halloween Meet.. Wink Grin
