Happy Friday 13th!

By Sam Burton

Happy Friday 13th! Some say it’s unlucky.  What an absolutely abysmal week of weather we’ve had!

So it’s finally Friday! And that means I have a whole two days of decorating ahead of me! As it’s Friday the 13th, I have a 13 based Fun Fact for you…

The fear of the number 13 has been given a scientific name: “triskaidekaphobia”; and on analogy to this, the fear of Friday the 13th is called “paraskevidekatriaphobia”.

I am not sure how you would pronounce either of those words!

Don’t be unlucky this Friday 13th, avoid missing out on the appointment you need by calling us now 01275 370571. Nicola and I are on hand to answer any questions you may have, to give you a quote, or to find an appointment that suits you.
