I've had a horrible day. The sewerage problem has returned in the garage. Couldn't believe it after thinking it was all sorted in April/May. Cried. How ridiculous is that. I really felt I needed hubby as he was pre Dementia. So, am in the process of getting it sorted. Part of the garage floor will have to be dug up. Hopefully very soon. Surveyor will be here on Wed afternoon. Insurance hopefully will cover it.
One step forward and 2 back is how I feel.
Will be ok. Half an hour's switch off will help.
Oh Pet66,

((((hugs))))

Not ridiculous at all Pet - just when you think everything is going fine something else comes along out of nowhere to push you back again. It's so frustrating !

The pandemic and lock down aren't helping either :( But you are coping admirably you know - so here's a hug from me too

((((((((((((((HUG)))))))))))
Thanks for much needed hugs!
Have another concern. When I renewed home insurance I was asked the usual questions. 1 being had I made any claims in the last 5 years. Answered no, as I truly believed I hadn't. The claim for the burglary we had didn't even enter my head. That happened just as hubby was becoming ill. He had UTI ( one of many and the start of dementia). My daughter was desperately trying to help him claim. So, now my insurance, which I paid in full has to go to the underwriters. The claims specialist handler said it was a common thing that happens, and I may just have to pay more to the premium, as a household who had made a claim. Obviously couldn't guarantee. Another wait and see.
Must sound an idiot to you! I feel an idiot.
My reasoning is that hubby had the massive stroke not long after, and the dreadful years that followed, took over my life and coping with them brain fogged me.
Not an idiot at all. You had a lot going on. I had to look through my emails to see when I claimed for our kitchen flood - although I found when the flood happened, I couldn't find the date I actually contacted the insurance company - as it hadn't occurred to me until others advised I did.

Its my guess it won't be an issue as you are claiming for sewage this time and last time it was a burglary. Since our kitchen flood, my compulsory excess for escape of water has been increased, but not the overall cost of house insurance.

The insurance was fine. Was accepted that it was a genuine error. Didn't even have to top up. Also the sewerage work is covered.
The engineers are here now, digging up part of the garage floor. Did explain to my neighbours that will be noisy.
Moving the chest freezer at 6.30 this morning out of the way.
I've another cold sore with the stress of this, a sure sign stress levels went up.
Oh well, I tell myself off and to just get on with it..
(((Pet)))

Glad the insurance is ok, but sorry for all the stress and upheaval and noise. Do you know how long the job will take?

Eat healthily and rest to get over the stress and rid of the cold sore.

Work is finished now. The tension in my shoulders just about going.
I wrote this on my own thread, because the home hubby and myself made together, on our own, ( no help) was really testing me, if you can understand my meaning. I love our home, even with all that still need doing. Have managed much more than I thought I could without him.
Pet, you have overcome the hurdles of doing the jobs that hubby used to do. You are looking after the home you and hubby created together and all that entails. You are stronger than you think. Perhaps a soak in the bath would help?
Is the work over for the day or is the job done?
