Been visiting my parents for a week, as usual did a few jobs around the
place for them.
One was to fit an old kitchen cupboard on the wall in the new utility
Hold cupboard up on the wall deciding where they want it, I comment it
needs to be high enough to give access to the sockets and FCU's below.
Decide on placing, mark out and drill the first hole for the fixing
screws, drill goes off line a bit.. Peer into hole, notice something
shiny - realise it's the exposed live conductor of the ring main feeding
the above mentioned sockets etc.........
The question is - where was my brain at the time? It's not like I'm new
to this game, or that I didn't know they were there, or do not know to
check that sort of thing.............
