Sunday evening and Him Outdoors has just driven off with a letter for the stairman enclosing a cheque for half the original devis. The letter explaining his shoddy workmanship and if he'd turned up for the meeting we would have explained this to him.
I am surprisingly frightened of his reaction. To the point of checking that I know the number of the gendarmes. (17)
A week later and no reaction from the stairman. The Builder reckons we might have got a half price stairs. Shame it's not good enough but hey..............
29th - letter from Stairman's solicitor saying 'give us the money'
