Mrs Payne positively intolerable following dinner party where she "cooked'. Has been asking for repeat performance ever since. Said this would be considered when kitchen has been tidied from the last time.
Unfortunately during the day Mrs Payne has still taken to watching the television at inordinate volume, with no amount of hinting on turning the thing down being accepted. Best response is for moderate decrease in volume, only to be increased 5 minutes later when I have returned to my office. Have now taken to wearing headphones such that I do now have to listen to television.
Project going quite well, and hoping to finish before Christmas. No feedback from boss in either of his visits, so presuming all quite acceptable so far.
