Bathroom Project Day 7

Well, Wednesday has started like any other Wednesday with reading the meters. Gas and electricity are both up, the former because it’s been so damn cold this past week and the electric because we have been hoovering two or three times a day. It was nice to pull back the curtains this morning and not see a white lawn.
Hubby’s mortar has gone off OK, but that was not the end of the matter  as he has had to use some more to keep the wood in place. Everything is level now to put down the new boards, but we can’t do that until the mortar is dry.  The dehumidifier is going in there later to help things along as putting the boards back now could lead to damp and that is something we don’t want.

We have progressed in opening the boxes for the shower tray installation and are very impressed. There are 8 adjustable feet, so they could have been tweaked accordingly but our problem was the floor beneath the boards being uneven. The instructions seem quite straightforward and as we opted for the design that is on a plinth, we will have access to the plumbing once everything is up and running.

There’s not much else Hubby can do today and tomorrow will see him out of commission anyway, so hopefully on Friday we can start putting things together. He’s doing a great job, though it’s taking a toll.
We’ve caught up with all the washing today and he’s just gone up to the launderette to get it dry.
Our neighbour has offered us the use of her bathroom shower tonight, so we are jumping at the chance otherwise we may have been using this!


About pensitivity101

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.

    With not being able to do much else until Friday, make sure you rest for a bit respite, so you have fresh energy for then.
    It’s nice if your neighbour to offer use of shower.

    My boiler wasn’t broken after all. I have a smart meter app which isn’t that smart. The amount of gas I still had left hadn’t been updated for 3 weeks! but the electricity amount was up to date.
    Long story short, the boiler is working now.

    Isn’t it wonderful to have such good neighbors!? I’m glad the floor leveling has been a success. I’m crossing my fingers that the rest will go smoothly!

    Slow but steady, you’re doing really well and a day off might be good for all
