Just to add to everything, I got a talking to yesterday as to why it’s my fault a couple of people who used to be friends. Apparently it’s because I didn’t share every detail of my life over the past 12-18 months with them. This meant they didn’t feel trusted, which made them withdraw, which meant that they weren’t trusted (the fact that I spoke to nobody in that time is apparently irrelevant).
Oh well, can’t please everyone (or anyone it would seem).
In other news, I was advised at about one last night (just as I was finally managing to log off) that the water supply was off. Looked out of the window, couldn’t see anything; checked out the back of the house, no sign of leaks; no noticeable water leaks within the house. I called Thames Water and it was apparently a burst water main in my road. It was all fixed by the time I got up, but I was impressed with how quietly the work was carried out. My road isn’t that long and I didn’t go outside to gawp, but there were no flashing lights being reflected off the houses and no sounds of drilling or what have you made it through the double glazing. Just unfortunate for them that when they turned the water off was just when it was tested.
