Mostly bad

Good: We live down a long driveway which we share with three other houses. It's lovely being that far back from a very busy road because it's relatively quiet and peaceful in the trees and the cats are safe.

Bad: The driveway has huge potholes. And the people we all booked to reseal it at some point during the last three sunny and dry weeks didn't.

Good: They showed up this week.

Bad: When it was raining.

Worse: And promptly cut into the neighbours' water main.

Bad: The foreman was ill yesterday so they didn't work.

Worrying: We have to park on a very busy road for several days, or down the hill in a quiet cul-de-sac and walk up an alleyway in the dark which I'm not prepared to do.

Good: A friend from Australia is coming to stay at the end of next week.

Bad: She's bringing her two little girls which is scaring the hell out of me.

Also bad: The taps in the guest bathroom don't work properly. You have to make 3 or 4 complete turns, then the bastards gush on so hard, water goes everywhere.

Good: I found a local plumber who said he can come tomorrow.

Bad: He can't, because our driveway is up.

I'm not even going to tell you about the crap new system management forced IT to put in at work. Sigh. I want something to go right.
