    Being useful.

    Getting a late night phone call (10 imns ago) that starts...... Daaaad now this might sound stupid but you know about sewers don't you? .....Yesss put a few in, in my time.

    The manhole is leaking raw sewage onto the pavement who is responsible?........ Before or after the join with next door? .........After,.......... then its Severn Trent.

    You sure?................... Yes because that is a lateral drain, their emergency phone number is 0800------- .

    Thanks thats a great relief good night.

    So I am old, I am slow, I am not as quick on the uptake as I was but I am still USEFUL

    Potty that is soo funny! Being a midwife then I can expect to remain useful whilst I know about contraception, how to tell if you're in labour, why breastfeeding is not working, and the baby won't sleep. I should be getting lots of phone calls at some stage

    It must be hard for my son, he has worked with me for some 20 years now, he has more paper qualifications than me, he is a very good gas & heating engineer. But of course when he entered the trade things were becoming more specialised and where as we older plumbers had experience of drain work he has never even touched on it.

    So its back to daaaad thsi may sound stupid.

    Love it!!!!!! Potty

    I hope Potty never needs to know how to tell if he is in labour...........
