Default Chiclana - Success Story

All those without an electric meter, don't dispair. After two years we finally had an official meter installed today. Hurrah, we can now start feeling a little more legal.

Also down our road telephones are due to be installed. However everyone had to dig the road up themselves and lay the cables before Telefonica would fit the phones. Luckily our neighbour is ex-BT and knew what he was doing.

Hi Glynis
That is such good news, you must be very happy and relieved!
I suspect that it may be christened later with several bottles of Cava.

Congratulations Glynis,

What clinched it for you. Can you explain the procedure you had to go through to get your meter. We have had our house for 2 years so we will follow your instructions to the letter.

Thanks a Lot

See good things do happen in life, it is never all doom and gloom. Hope you go and sing a really loud chorus of 'Oh what a beautiful morning ". Did CDL help you Glynis ?? I know he managed to get one for another contributor to this forum.

Right, procedure to get an electric meter. Get a handful of hair and pull it several times, then jump up and down with frustration and finally scream very loudly.

Seriously though our builder did it all. He kept saying that a meter had been applied for and to be honest I didn't believe him. However he has been true to his word and finally we got one.
