Ribbons and bathrooms
Well good morning or is it ?????? lol
First the good news..... I have finished sorting my ribbons, just need 2 new boxes as the shoe boxes are not big enought ! If I let you into the secret of how many there are.... please don't tell him indoors !!!! 419-----in total..... an average of 10 to a card, none less than 1 metre, some 10/ 16/ and 20 metres long !!! and I have a bag of less than a metre !!
Just need to sort fibres and lace now !!
The not so good........ decided to have the bathroom re-tiled as these have been on for 23 years .....of course, one job leads to another, as the tiles came off, the wooden window sill has rotted through holes in grout and silicone, then on the other wall, the plaster fell off with the tiles as this had got mosture in as well. So tonight I have a man coming to plaster !
Not much better with the plumber, he could not find a tap to drain the radiators to take it off the wall to tile behind, he then went downstairs to turn the stop-cock off and could not turn it as it had been painted, also there is a cupboard at the side which does give him enough room for his spanners------- SO, he went out-side to the main stopcock and that is full of dirt which has gone hard, SO, I have had to ask the council to come and clean it out for me, don't know when that will be ! Now they have both gone, got a toilet we have to flush with a bucket of water, and a bath, at least 'WE HAVE FACILITIES !' no-one needs a washbasin and shower as well, do they ??? they said they would come back in a week, but we are going away next Wednesday !
Thanks for stopping by
