    Oh Patsy - Incredibly frustrating.

    My suggestion would be that you (or your solicitor) tell the sellers they need to get an electricity certificate before exchange of contracts. No certificate = no exchange = No sale. The prospect of losing a buyer can be a great motivator. Don't own their problem.

    If they want to sell, it'll only keep coming up if they don't do it. If they don't or won't do it, then you have to ask yourself why. At that point, I'd be back looking at properties.

    Time for a little moan. I did DAFNE 2 weeks ago and I am still struggling to work out my ratios. I’m up to 3:1 at breakfast and it’s still high, basal seems fine (32 levemir) and I’m 1:1 at dinner, lunch is tricky though, it seems to change. I’m constantly at 14 or so AM and then 5-7 in the evening. I know it’s probably a simple solution but Im just aaaaasrgggghghgh

    Is your daughter depressed, @woolfie? Has she always rejected responsibility? Does she find it difficult making connections with others, despite her texting? We’re the children planned? In other words, is there an underlying problem that needs to be addressed?
    If not then in your shoes I’d be tempted to take her aside and explain firmly that it’s time she pulled her weight a bit more.
    However, maybe she doesn’t see herself as a mother but remains, in her own head, a child?

    Don’t give in! One thing you could do is get an estimate for the rewiring, with room for unseen problems of course, and say you’ll only complete if the price is reduced. If you get it done yourself then at least, if you choose a good electrician, you’ll know it’s been done well. From the sound of the nasty bullying, incompetent lot you’d be better to do it yourself!
    I think walking away would be the best option, really. Have you anywhere you could stay while you search for somewhere else?

    When Ron and I brought a house it ended up being a money pit . I never saw it until we owned it . Ron had seen to it all. Never again . It needed RE wiring , new combi boiler , new roof , floor joists in living room rotted . We claimed on insurance for that. Then the flat room needed replacing . It was just one thing after another .

    Daughter has mental health issues. She makes friends only to remove them if in her eyes they have hurt her (part of the mh issues)
    Children not planned, either of them.
    And yes at nearly 30 she has not grown up. She acts like a teenager most of the time and unfortunately the eldest granddaughter is following in the same footsteps.
    It's stressful to say the least

    Hi guys, I don't often post on this thread, but well ...cyclists...aaaarrrggggh!

    This was what happened yesterday.

    Incident 1. I am in a stream of cars all moving at 20 mph. What happens? a cyclist overtakes them at speed grrrr So are 20 mph limits not for them then huh?

    Incident 2. I am moving slowly through town and there's a cyclist behind me. The car in front of me indicates right to go across to the other side of the road to park. What happens? The cyclist overtakes me (d'uh) and falls off his bike because he has to stop so suddenly. Thankfully he didn't collide with either of the cars.

    Incident 3. I stop at a pedestrian crossing for several pedestrians to cross. What happens? A cyclist undertakes me and nearly knocks over a 3 year old who is just trailing behind his Mum a bit. Thankfully the 3 year old was alert and stopped before he was hit by the bike.

    Thanks. I feel better for that.
