Last night while stripping paper off the kitchen wall, I noticed two large nuts sticking out of the wall. I thought that maybe they were extra large bolts for the living room radiator. My brother had to come and move a wire for the plasterer and I mentioned them. It appears that they are gas cap offs. For years I opened the cupboard with the mugs in and swore there was an odd whiff of gas. I have repeatedly been told that I am imagining it as there is no gas on that side of the kitchen. At this my brother fetched a spray to test for leaks. Lo and behold I have had a gas leak for 20 years.
It is now fixed and the kichen is replastered. Tomorrow I may get a sink back.
