Here are some extracts from letters received by the Gas Board...
Can you move the meter so that it won't cause an obstruction in my passage?
The Electric man did it through the floorboards but your man put it in my front passage where everyone can see it, and I don't like it so much in the kitchen as I did in the shop window.
I told my husband it was safe to have it in all night, but he won't. If he comes to the showroom like I did, can the lady satisfy him behind the counter and talk him out of it?
I was told mine was no good but if it is altered I can get the North Sea in.
I have heard there are two ways you can have it and it worked out cheaper the more you got if you have it the other way.
I am not satisfied with an apprentice, so will you send a man to do it properly?
My wife will be ready for your man if you will let her know when he is coming on a postcard.
I will try to pay before the end of the month because my husband will be surprised if you cut it off without telling him.
My husband is pretty handy but he says your men can do it better because of their tools.
It has gone slack with use and my husband can't make it tight no matter how he tries, so for the time being we are making do with an old gas ring.
My slot is not blocked now but your men made an awful mess banging their tools on the wall.
Since I made arrangements with your salesman I am having a baby and would like to change it for a drying cabinet.
My neighbour has a bigger one than we had, it makes a difference to her water when she fills the bath.
My husband was under the impression I was getting it at reduced rates but your salesman didn't use his head and got me into trouble.
It is about time your workmen came back to fill the hole because we are fed up of having it in the street, it is a big attraction and we are getting children by the dozen.
It's Peace Globe Day tomorrow folks. If you want to join in read all about it and get your Peace Globe at Mimi Writes.
Tuesday 5th June
Doing really well, walking quite a bit more, still with the crutch outside but it's just a security blanket really.
