My Ma searched the internet for tips on getting out soot and by a stroke of luck I had her Vax machine at my house. So I have got it to this state. It’s not perfect, but it is much better. But my goodness I am still angry.

I think you should be annoyed, 6 fire fighters stomping about and pouring water down your chimney don't make that much mess. And we do it for free

I honestly can’t even think what they were doing to make that mess.

I wonder what the usual actions are if a tradesperson comes to your house and wrecks it?

Yes. Will be nice to have that final link taken away.

It’s a chunk of money, Kov, but it’s well spent on finalising and tidying things up in your life. Hopefully the positives make up for the costs.


Yes. I am taking a bit of equity out of the house to replace the windows. The money can come out of that.

They'd have stuck something up the chimney to see if it was blocked.

I’m pretty sure I could have sent Darwin up there with a broom and have made less mess. The mess wasn’t in front of the fire, it was a distance away, but I guess their door sheets must have come to an end at that point.

I tested positive for covid over the weekend which means I've lost 3 days of work this week which, I could have done with.

I'm fine with it by the way, just a little cold however.. I woke this morning with vertigo! I've had it a hand ful of times in my life and it's horrific. I could barely make it across the landing without feeling sick... So yeah, this week is already a write off.

Arse! That is a pain - and a weird effect! Fingers crossed that that's the worst of it.

I had a good active day yesterday with no problems. Today I woke up and couldn't straighten my left leg. Weirdly, it was then okay, till I got too confident and then it cramped (don't think it is that, but it felt that way) up again. Currently - fine.

That's shit dude, sorry to hear that. Sounds very similar to my symptoms. Although fair warning, I got it start of Nov and I'm still absolutely wankered. 3 days in bed, another 3-4 to be able to stand up without feeling like I was going to pass out, more before I could sit at a screen again (reading words on the screen made me feel sick). Then at the weekend I had horrendous chest pains - to the point where I started googling heart attack symptoms. Had some blood extracted today to check for clots because of the covid risk factor but that's come back clean so it's just regular ol' lung inflamation, fun times. Cancelled the 9 mile run I was planning this weekend, let's put it that way. :roll:

I'm fit and active, healthy, and take my vitamins. Dread to think what state I'd be in without the little pfizer buddies on my side.

Ach. That sounds seriously shit Jem.
Give yourself time to be ill, or more pertinently, don’t rush your recovery. Every graveyard is full of “indispensable” people. I know you probably have huge amounts to do, but it can wait.
Get well, but do it at a pace you’re good with. Everybody dismayed at what they can achieve in a year don’t appreciate what they can achieve in ten!

I managed to tweak my back as I bent ever so slightly forwards and reached across the kitchen counter for the kids lunch boxes as I was making sandwiches in the morning.

I'm not really used to back pain and I'm a little bit embarrassed at how it happened, but last night I felt almost a bit sick because of the hurty.

I can see the humour in it but also, ouchies.

Welcome to Old!

Hi5!

I threw my back out in my sleep a couple of weeks ago and couldn’t move for two days.

Feel better soon x
