Help! Got a tradesman coming today to start some work on my roof. It's just occured to me that he may ask for refreshments, and I'm not sure I've really got anything suitable. Does anyone know what they drink? I know they tend to like a mug of tea, but what type? Are you supposed to invite them in, or take it out to where they are working? Or will he just bring a flask of his own and get on with it? Will he want biscuits? Sandwiches? If so, that's a whole new minefield... Sorry for all the questions, but I have no idea of the protocol and I suddenly feel very inept. I didn't even think to ask the guy when commissioning his services, and there's nothing mentioned on the schedule of works. This is the first time I've been around when workmen have been here - I normally make myself scarce. Someone here will know.
