Evening all here is an update,

The Rat who fitted the trannie needs kneecapping - X(

I pulled down the four downlighters today, wondering when the trannie would come into view ready to drop into my hand.

Well not a chance the plonker who installed it has placed it in the middle of the ceiling (painted T +G ) and the floor above is a tiled bathroom one. :_|

Unluckily for me it is the house i bought in february:_|

Even worse i have been testing out today as a possible job for my reassesment in the morning,as most of my work is to far away for the assessor. :|

I suppose i can discuss the many faults i have found today and this place was proffesionaly wired (alledgedly ). X(

On a brighter note the tripping only occured twice on the kitchen lights and has'ent tripped since. :)

Good morning mr assessor tea, coffee, and heres my story.Blushing
