Not a problem at all. I’m at bunnies looking at the colour cards again. So do you remember if it was lexicon or tranquil retreat?

Lexicon is definitely a lot whiter than tranquil retreat, didn’t you say it was tranquil retreat in your previous post?

That’s what I have thought of and would like to avoid, too. So any recommendations of a good inspector, who can follow up the rectification?
