Re: Moans and Pet Hates - Part 8

Our water issue was a burst main under the kitchen. Why the first plumber didn't do the basic check and turn off water at road saving lots of hassles and nigh on 3 weeks of mopping up close to 100l/day. At least metre was broken so didn't register it.


Now waiting for report from Dynoplumb to insurers can work out if they pay and what they pay for any damage. On the plus side we did find the damaged rainwater drain and have that sorted.

We've been woken up the last 2 mornings 6am with the smoke alarm going off. No smoke, and the alarm has a replacement date of 2033!

That would suggest to me that it could be faulty Tinky unless something outside near your area is drifting in through open windows or doors but seeing it was raining cats and dogs this morning that would be highly unlikely.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates - Part 8

Does the timing coincide with anything, such as a central heating boiler, switching on?

I reckon it is faulty, does not coincide with any boiler etc settings. Unfortunatly I can't remember where I bought it. A friend suggested I contact the local fire station and get their men to test, can't do that, seeing all these handsome young men in uniform could be too much for this old heart lol! Safer to buy a new one.

Iphones, do my head in.

Got one for work. Took ages to work out how to get it go to go into landscape mode.... Everything else is difficult to control. Every update seems to change settings back to what they want rather than you've set....

I shall stick to my trusty Android.

I find both systems good, in their own way - I have an Android phone and an iPad Pro tablet (not had the "settings" issue you refer to, neither has SWMBO on her iPhone or iPad).

I suppose it’s what you’re used to that is sometimes the issue - anything "different" can be a challenge for some…

Worth a go but I find relaxing difficult at the best of time. Living with clinical anxiety sucks
