It was crossed legs time today, out came the loo, only then did the plumber discover he had the wrong part for the new one! Yikes.
Off he goes... hell for leather back to the stores, then back to me. Not sure why he said he didn't want a cuppa, mind you neither did I, we both just wanted the new loo fitted - pronto. And it was, relief all round. Give him his due he stayed late to make sure everything worked, well except for the top bit, he couldn't work out the external flush button - don't worry I can flush my loo.
The work on the bathroom has done me a favour, the plumber was searching for the off switches to the taps in the bathroom, consequently he yanked out all the dust sheets that mum and I had stuffed behind the hot water tank! So that gave me a reason to sort them out, plus a few other things were unearthed in the airing cupboard, even found some socks. So I will sort the airing cupboard out properly over the weekend. I need to do it as the central heating is due to be replaced, and the tank will be removed. I also discovered the other bath mat set, a lovely shade of blue, I can use that again, couldn't before as it clashed with the green. Can't help thinking that mum would have liked the new bathroom, precious little work was ever done to the flat, mum would never ask, while others were always demanding stuff. She did kick up a fuss when we had the new kitchens installed. We'd had the washing machine put in the airing cupboard as it was the only place it could go in the old kitchen. When the new kitchen was fitted they told her that the washing machine would have to be moved, she dug her heels in and demanded that they fit a double sink unit, she wouldn't budge! She also insisted that the wiring all be sunk into the walls, she was not going to have that awful trunking put in, she won that battle as well. I am glad she refused to let them touch the bathroom, as so many of our neighbours had problems with leaky baths and toilets.
Nice ending to Corrie, good to see Tracey get her comeuppance, and also for her own daughter to see the light and head to live with her dad. Glad Roy had a change of heart and said a proper goodbye to Carla. And the body has been found, don't forget, Kylie is leaving... cue dramatic music!
Now going to pour myself a large glass of wine.
