Carl drove all the way from Lincoln to Wolverhampton yesterday to fit a new kitchen sink mixer tap for us.
A combination of carpal tunnel syndrome and general incompetence ruled out me trying to do the job myself
But seriously, Having driven all that distance, a one hour job turned into a 4 hour nightmare during which time Carl used a total of no expletives, although the look on his face was expressive.
Luckily, there is a local "they sell everything in there" hardware shop which wasn't going to let a wedding get in the way of potential sales and after raiding their plumbing department, Carl eventually managed to complete what had become a pig of a job.
I'd like to say thank you to Carl for a job well done and to confirm that there were no overnight leaks (well, not from the kitchen taps anyway ).
Thank you also to Laura and the zebettes for allowing me to monopolise their spouse / Dad for so much longer than we originally thought.
