Hi guys, thanks for your replies, yes its been skimmed---very thin though but think I can repair sufficiently and yes had reached conclusion that probably sugar soap and elbow grease were now the requirements---still cheaper tho than plasterer! One of these days am going to learn how to plaster more than square foot or two!!! Cheers
