    We have gone for organising POA and OH has been fretting about it. We had to cancel it a couple of times as he was unsure about it and on the day I didnt know whether he was going to sign it (and I was so worried about it that I forgot to pay for the parking and got a ticket :( ), but he did - huge relief. However, he ended up pacing and muttering - he was clearly very anxious about the whole thing and I was worried that he was winding himself up.

    Then the boiler broke and had to be repaired :eek:
    Hubby was instantly diverted and all his concern was about getting it repaired. Its now fixed and the POA is out of mind.

    Hoorah for silver linings :)

    Gosh, I never thought a boiler breaking down could be good news for anybody :D :D! Lovely to hear that your husband was distracted and the PoA was forgotten.
