It’s raining. Hard. Heavy. The fat stuff.
Had we purchased the bungalow in the road closer to the town, we would have a big pond outside the front door, and every time someone drove past, our car would have got a ducking.
Not so here.
There may be a little ‘runnage’ in the gutter, but so far, no puddle on our side. Besides, the car is quite safe some considerable distance away from the kerb as our driveway is large enough to accommodate at least two vehicles, three is they are small like ours.
We have had a good day. I mean, megga good.
The shower kit arrived yesterday and Hubby fitted it today.
The control section was the same width as the one we took out, so he could use the existing pipework. OK, the four holes didn’t line up with any of the three required for the new one, (you can’t have everything), but a little modification to shorten the bar that holds the shower head meant he could use the previous holes so had the minimum tile drilling to do.
It’s up. It works. It doesn’t leak. Hubby had the first test drive, and he was singing.
Can you spot the difference?
The carpet in the bathroom looked new, but it came up anyway.
I remember 30 odd years ago a lovely rose coloured carpet being laid to finish off my new luxury burgundy bathroom. Not only did the suite show every water mark and was a bitch to keep clean, but the carpet was splashed, sploshed and stained from missing the loo (what a surprise sharing the house with three males) so that in a few months, it STANK.
Hubby has laid vinyl ‘parquet’ floor tiles, and I have purchased a bath mat set in cream which contrasts well to the mushroom wall tiles, brown vertical blind and the white suite.
Maggie has eaten extremely well today, clearing her bowl, and drinking well. Everything is as usual with her, and we get the results tomorrow of this biopsy which is hanging over us.
I got the results of my mammogram today, and that showed everything to be normal and nothing of concern.
Yesterday wasn’t a bad day either as Hubby fitted our second lock to the front door.
My fear was it slamming shut when we were outside with no keys and no other way in, so he came up with a digital door lock which solves the problem in such an eventuality.
