Yellow snowdrops are a bit special Runny
I do understand what SGL says about not being able to 'get on' with workmen in the house. I think I'm always worried I won't hear them calling me to make some important decision - which they then go and make themselves.
I do a lot of 'popping in' just to make sure things are going exactly where I want them. Probably drives them bonkers but I always warn people when they start work that it's what I do. Afraid my thinking is - my house, my money - so I'm allowed to make sure they get it right.
Learned the hard way not to assume that things which don't look right will be perfect when it's all finished Still, I now have a nice group of tradesmen who I can trust to do a really good job and I do tend to leave them to get on with a bit.
It has been lovely out there today but the ground is already looking quite dry - in February - that's not right!
