I was left home at 17 when parents went abroad for 2 weeks, he considers himself independent at that age and won't want his parents fussing over him, so time to let go and don't be over protective, if he makes mistakes he will learn from them.

I just need to accept the situation and the fact he wants to stay at home plus as hubby says he can regularly check our house on CCTV.
He'll be fine in sure

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

The ****wit who installed our kitchen a couple of years back.

A few years ago, we needed a new kitchen. We bought one from Ikea, and as we'd had a handyman who was apparently qualified to fit kitchens, and he'd proved to be quite reliable, I didn't bother going through Ikea to fit it.

We picked up the kitchen, and took it home. There was enough boxes that it filled our handyman's Transit.

Months later, and after a lot of chasing, we managed to get him back to fit the kitchen. This went on for months, and we eventually got to the point where we had a sort of workable kitchen. He'd completed the cabinets, cooker and sink, just needed to finish the cabinets, put some tiles up and paint. At that point, he started not bothering to turn up, so we eventually kicked him off the job and got another company in to complete it. They did a good job, generally, even fixing a couple of problems he left.

Then, a couple of months ago, the cabinet holding the oven and the cabinet next to it started to sink. I investigated and found he'd only put a leg on the oven cabinet, not the other cabinet and he'd just bolted them together. Ikea require that you put legs on BOTH cabinets, and bolt them together. I put the missing leg in, and it looks like the ****er has damaged the bases of BOTH cabinets. I've now got to look at getting someone in to fix the cabinets. If one of the cabinets didn't happen to have a gas oven and hob in it, I'd be happy to repair both..

Just wishing I'd gone with getting Ikea to fit the kitchen now. Even though that would have cost a lot, and would likely have had other problem, at least it would have been fitted properly.

Sympathies, hope you get it sorted if possible. It's difficult to find reputable tradespeople or mechanics.... We found our builder through rated people, but it's still a risk.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Why is it, when I am home not working I want to be there, but on days I am working I want to be at home lol. Guess that's just normal adult life.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

We have a banging noise in our kitchen mostly when we run the cold tap. I was informed it was a Airlock in the pipes, Not sure how much this will cost as we have two council Tennants and Four bought houses in our flats, but I know the council are really robbers when we ask their prices,

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

If it's not that it could be "water hammer" comes from pipes that have a degree of movement and conspire with the tap washer to make a regular banging noise. Changing the washer sometimes cures it and/or finding the pipes that can move.

I had something similar with the toilet, as the tank filled and the flow diminished there started up a steady tone. Here just an extra clamp on the incoming water pipe stopped it.

Can't you take it in turns to check?
Just hope it isn't a sign that your stopcock washer is shot.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

SORRY FOR THE LONG POST....

I was put in a bit of a dilemma last Friday to cut a long story my Dad asked me to apply for aids for him about the house as he sold the stair lift, and got rid of the other aids just after Mum passed away this was my sisters idea and I thought it was crazy at the time tbh but I was weak then and kept my own thoughts to myself although as usual I did rant on here and bless you all for allowing me to have my rants anyway I did as Dad had requested and I applied for these aids about a month ago.

Last Friday I called my Dad to say that a meeting has been arranged for his assessment and he asked if I could be there and I said ok so all was going well then my Dad called saying that my sister is going to be there, now remember I have not seen nor spoken since June 2017 and trust me this is for best, well for me anyway so I needed to decide what to do, do I do what is best for me or do I risk my health both mentally and physically and go along with it.

Needless to say that hubby was not pleased at me even considering going or my sister expecting me to be in the same room as her with all that she has done to myself and my family.

I really needed to take my families feelings into the equation as hubby feared for my well being & health plus I needed to listen to my eldest son as he said Mum please don't go, I'm begging you as I honestly think you will be a lamb to the slaughter.

Anyway long story short I never went to my Dad's for his assessment and apparently my sister was not to pleased when she discovered that I said there is no point in us both being there.

Why is this a moan and pet hate well because when will SHE realize that my business with her is done and dusted!

Saying all this I was torn at what to for the best and at the end of the day although this may sound harsh but my hubby and two boy's must come first along with my own health even if that's before my Dad's wishes.

Yes I survived being torn in two

Oh weenie I wish I could give you a hug.

It is said that you can't choose your family and to a certain extent that is true. You may have a Father and a Sister who don't deserve you but what you do have is the family that you chose, A great husband and two sons who love you and protect you and that is the best thing in this world.
