We've almost lost the will to live!
About two years ago we asked our local 'specialist' builder to lay a 'perfectly smooth concrete floor' in our newly acquired barn. He quoted a phenomenally high price, we reluctantly agreed, then waited.... Nothing.
Eventually some men arrived and they levelled the floor with several lorry-loads of crushed stone. They also covered it with plastic sheeting.... Then nothing.
Several months later, different men arrived and laid down some reinforcing metalwork for the concrete.... Since then, nothing.
Soon it will be Christmas, then the New Year, then Easter, then the Summer Holidays, etc, etc.
We've now given up even thinking about them. Maybe one day they will turn up, maybe not. Frankly, we don't really care any more!
Some time in 2013 would be fine!
