Grinning And Bearing

We end the day with power everywhere except in the kitchen. The joiners have put in the framework for the false kitchen ceiling, but the leaking pipe has stopped them from putting the boards up. They've also begun work on the false ceiling in the bathroom. The leak gets worse and I'll be turning the water off at the main when I go to bed this evening. Peter rang Mohammed and had him promise that a plumber would be in attendance tomorrow morning. 

There have been times today when- if I hadn't been holding myself severely in check - I might have become a little peevish. The joiner- a soft-spoken older man who wants to sell me a flat screen monitor for the computer (one careful owner, very cheap)- says he doesn't know how I'm coping with all the shit.
