Panic mostly subsided.

I’m now in possession of almost all the facts.  The rest will be vouchsafed to me when everyone else returns from holiday, a whole week after me!!

It’s mostly good, but I need clarity before I can declare it will really work without me having to seek alternative/additional employment.

So, I’m declaring that the only thing I will worry about for the next ten days is the state of my outside pipes.  Oh, and a new computer.
