Double Glazing Guy and his Special Needs Mate arrived at 8:30 on the dot this morning. Double Glazing Guy's been working steadily while Special Needs Mate has been performing such feats of derring-do that I can no longer watch and have retired to my study. He seems unaware of the fact that he's two floors up without a safety net, and clearly isn't able to retain Double Glazing Guy's warnings and admonitions into his memory banks for more than a few seconds at a time. I had wanted to take pictures of the work being done, to show you the before and after, but as per usual, both my cameras' batteries are depleted, and the new mobile-cum-camera hasn't arrived yet.

It took me more than 3 hours to get to work yesterday, as -or so I learned later- a body had been found dumped on the railway track. All I was told at the time was that by order of the police and the provincial authorities, there would be no trains between The Hague and Leiden, and that those travelling to Amsterdam or Schiphol would have to travel via Utrecht, easily adding another hour to their journey time. I thought Jobsworth would have a fit, but it turned out he's not in this week -- so thank God for small mercies.
