We could have done with appliance instructions and more directions on what days wheelie bin went out and whether general or recycling as the note on board in kitchen said Tuesday and they don't recycle but the Instruction book in the lounge said bins were emptied Wednesdays! Owner was very obliging as we had two power cuts and after a quick call she delivered torches and candles etc.
