Can anyone recommend someone who can mend a vacuum cleaner please? Three-ish year old Miele not picking up.
This caused consternation (and some amusement), since 'Joanna E Clark' (complete with middle initial) happens to be the name of one of my neighbours, who confirms that her vacuum cleaner has NOT broken down, and that she didn't post this message.
May be a coincidence, and someone out there in SE1-land actually has the same name, or has just chosen an unfortunate pseudonym for her first post to the Forum.
But if in response to this message there is a sudden flurry of new subscribers recommending a particular vacuum cleaner repairer ('no connection with the firm, just a satisfied customer') - well, perhaps I just have a suspicious nature.
But if 'Joanna E Clark' is a deliberately-chosen SE1 Forum pseudonym - please don't choose names off the voters' register, it's very annoying.
