    meaning

    A plumber is someone who fixes water-pipes and heating systems. I was explaining that I missed a point in an earlier post because my boiler has gone wrong. I was upstairs in my study working, but I was wondering what the plumber was doing downstairs with my heating system - so I was distracted and not concentrating on my work properly!


    Please explain the highlighted words.
