Baz, the electrician, finally came by today to pick up the pittance he charged us for replacing the ADSL socket. We had a bit of a chat to him about more work he's going to do to the house on behalf of the landlord at some point in the future, and I still might have him run CAT5-E to the office for us after all. Not sure yet.
Unfortunately, after I thought I was off until after the new year, I found out I'm working again tomorrow. It's only a short trip, but I'll have to leave tonight and spend the night in the van... good news is I'll be home mid-afternoon tomorrow.
