TV talk

The guy called last night (Sunday night) to tell me that he'd be coming between 12:00 pm and 3:00 pm. He actually never showed up until 3:15 pm. He sorted the wire out - the box turned out to be fine - and was gone by about 3:30 pm.

About half an hour or so later, the little sod - meaning, of course, the kid that I mentioned yesterday, who keeps on at the wire - was back at it. So, my Mam went out to tell him to leave it, and he ran off before she even got out of the gate that's at our door. So, while we knew he was out of the way, we had a look in the tool box to see if we had any of those wire clips for tacking wires to the wall. We did. So, we used some to secure the wire inside as well. Then we put some sellotape over the clips to give a little bit of extra support. Mam went out and gave the wire an experimental tug, and it never budged. That should stop him. For a while anyway.

The man from Sky said that if they do it again, specifically tell them that he said that the wire has to be completely reinstalled, and put up differently so that he can't reach it.

At least we can watch TV now!
