The plan today was to get the bath out and repair the floor.
Not that along ago, Hubby had to replace the shower screen, and true to form, anything he puts in is a swine to get out. He managed though and everything is perfectly serviceable so we may be able to get a few pounds for it.
Getting the bath out was not as bad as it could have been. Once the water was turned off and the taps disconnected, we had a fight with the silicone, again something Hubby had replaced. The room looks awfully big now!
The floor had actually rotted where the leak had been addressed but diverted rather than resolved, which explained the musty smell sometimes. Still, the flooring has now been replaced, the water pipes capped and excess piping removed.
Everything is tidy and the bathroom in service. We have known one instance where professional fitters came in and provided a port-a-loo for the residents as the bathroom was out of commission for over a month!
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

Awesome Di! You two make a great team! 🙂
We do work well together as a rule. I’m a good gopher and tea lady.
I’m coming to your house for tea the next time I go to England 💕💕
kettle’s always on Carol Anne.
Great, thanks Di 💚💚
We have an ‘unplanned’ project ongoing in our kitchen. Yikes! Everything is a mess.
This is stellar! I’m betting that the leak is now fixed and the floor that was rotted is soon to be a thing of the past! Day 2 will no doubt be productive! (fingers crossed for luck)
Thanks Val. Hoping to have a good second day
Cool. I find it fun to redo things.
I wouldn’t say this is exactly fun, but it is necessary.
You’ll enjoy the end product.
In the end, yes.
Well done, sounds like you made fantastic progress 😊
Hope today goes as well
All the hard work will have been worth it in the end.
We’ll be working on this for at least a week.
