My old chums at Thames Water have evidently learned a small lesson from their previous interactions with me.
They have very wisely decided to give myself, and my neighbours, a whole two days notice about yet another interruption to our water supplies.
This time we are told that our water will be shut off this Thursday (2nd August) between 08:00 and 14:00. I have lost count as to how many times they have cut us off in the last few weeks.
I will be timing them!
