Thanks Linda. Interesting prompt this week!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “sealing/ceiling.” Use one, use both, have fun!

Oh we are seeing plenty of this/these lately.
One of the things about house hunting is that you notice little things, like ceilings and sealings.
We’ve seen property where the ceilings are low, high, covered in mould, cracked, papered, tiled, panelled or even absent! Bedrooms with restricted height amuse me sometimes where the bed is positioned, as visions of our wedding night in an inside cabin on the ferry which had bunks comes to mind and neither of us could do anything for laughing.
Restricted height in bathrooms also amuse as most do not have over-the-bath showers. You could not raise your hands above your head to wash your hair without hitting them, and if you were over 6 feet tall you’d have to stoop or squat anyway.

On the subject of bathrooms you can group in kitchens too, as we look at the state of the sealant around baths, showers, loos and of course sinks.  In the boat I got a little carried away scrubbing the back of our bathroom sink and rubbed the sealant away, so we had to replace it, and I was never any good at pipe-icing cakes.

Of course there are other seals on property to look at, those on windows and doors.
The last thing we want is seepage or worse, indoor waterfalls!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
