I ordered some more loft insulation (rockwool) to top up what we have in our loft (marginally below current building regs in places I believe).
After many calls back and forth, on Thursday I made a firm arrangement with the supplier for the 10 rolls of rockwool to be delivered today, when I am home all day.
Except that it turned up yesterday when I was still in my pyjamas. Cue frantic scramble into clothes, then an hour's worth of heaving to get it under cover (most of it actually up in the loft) since we're forecast a lot of rain and I still had to get to my client in central London!
PS. Just after writing this I then had a call saying they were having difficulty making my delivery this morning. I had to point out that was maybe because they'd already made it. The guy was mystified but apologetic!

We've had those days DamonHD, I got a delivery of some parts and for the next two days they kept wanting to come out and make the delivery. I got to thinking about lots of spares, alas they figured it out. :-(
Aerogel drylining for the kids' bedrooms was meant to start today (the entire outer wall for one room, partial for the adjacent room).
Not wanting to be neurotic, but with an eye to how things can slip, I was pre-emptively chasing builders and delivery from early this morning.
The builder had entirely forgotten, but managed to re-arrange everything to start tomorrow.
The delivery people said everything was fine until about 16:30 when they confessed that ... actually would tomorrow at 10am would be OK? I won't be here, so I had to make sure that the builders would be here to manhandle the stuff, delicately...
Then I get a call asking me if I can change the delivery time again. I refused on the grounds that I now couldn't easily guarantee anyone would actually be around other than at 10am. So that's how it's staying for now. Except that the delivery is in a 45ft lorry that may have some difficulty getting closer than a couple of streets from us.
I shall see how it all unravels from the other side of town at my client's office! %-P
