This week I’ve taken on a new client. Their site rules stipulate that full high visibility clothing should be worn – trousers and top. They’re very orange! Such that the camera even blows out when I try and take a selfie! In other news, I’ve outed myself on both Twitter and Instagram as having theContinue reading “Hi Viz wanker!”
I’m nursing a bit of a cold at the moment. Nothing too bad, but irritating anyway. Lateral flow test was negative. I’ve been working through it as I’ve been pretty much on my own. I found something rather sad but a sign of the modern world. A pigeon has made a nest on top ofContinue reading “Code milky green!”
A customer phoned me up the other day saying there was a burning smell, and I was ready to call out; but then she phoned me about half an hour later and said it had gone.

A call at 4am resulted in me talking someone through stopping a possible fire. A contactor had overheated and the arc chute was glowing bright red. I told them to turn all the breakers on that particular circuit off this removing the load. When I got there I found this. Obviously that’s been burning. IContinue reading “Arse!”
