Bathroom Project : recap

This was how we looked a fortnight ago before we started.

Day 1 saw us get the bath out and putting down new floorboards.

Day 2 started off with a tip run and getting rid of the bath (a neighbour told me today that he could have used it to clean out his fish pond).
The bath that took us over the height limit at the council tip.
Hubby started de-tiling the bathroom.

All tiles now off the wall.
Day 3 was the last of the tiles off the wall (sadly none could be saved) and the beginning of the domino effect which meant DIY shopping and alternative ways of thinking.
Day 4 was plastering

Day 5 we hit a problem in discovering the floor was uneven…….. in two directions.
This meant the new floorboards would have to come up, or another alphabetical plan.
Day 6 our tape delivery was due in the early evening so we did some running around.
Day 7 saw the floor finally level and the boards back in place.

Levelling up and boards back in place.

These past seven days have seen little progress due to Hubby’s hospital appointment and a small tilt in noticing a possible defect in the shower tray. The company was closed for the weekend so we had some time off for R&R though sent an email with photographs of our enquiry. We followed this up on Monday, and again on Tuesday. Wednesday we had a copy of the email from the manufacturer forwarded to us by the plumbing company and all was OK so we could continue with the work. We had our neighbours in for curry yesterday so resumed the job today.


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.

  1. Di, I see that you are very busy today with your husband going to the hospital and all that work you are getting done on your bathroom, but I know how much you enjoy writing, so I tagged you to finish a story.

    A lot of hard work by the two of you Di 🙂 I hope it is paying off and I know once the new shower is in, it will be wonderful!

    A small delay, but at least it’s sorted. Fingers crossed it all goes well from now on
