First time paying people to do Stuff to the new house today.

The boiler is serviced, the thermostat has been replaced with a programmable timer one, the leaning fencepost in the garden has been reinforced with a concrete post, and the rotten board on the decking replaced. I feel pleasantly accomplished despite not having done any of the work myself.

(I was mildly surprised that they both said they'd invoice me and I should pay by bank transfer then, rather than wanting a cheque on the spot.)

Hurrah! Is that everything for now?

I was mildly surprised that they both said they'd invoice me and I should pay by bank transfer then, rather than wanting a cheque on the spot.

Saves them trudging to the bank and maybe losing the cheque.

But I'm surprised too. Most tradespeople try to persuade you to pay in cash IME.
