    Stone floors

    Stuff everywhere

    Absolutely. You've not heard of Roger's Rules of Wood Sequestering? Rule No.1 - If a piece of timber is wide enough, it won't be thick enough Rule No.2 - If a piece of timber is wide enough and thick enough then it won't be long enough Rule No.3 - If a piece of timber is wide enough, thick...

    Yup...a few of you have got it. The muppets who wired up the flats in the 1950's got two neutrals crossed I got one neutral wire from one of the flats and they had one of mine.
