Boiler fixed a couple of weeks ago after several visits from the plumber, nothing is ever simple in this house. Finally got hot water. Now its leaking because the blasted thing has been taken to pieces so often. Hot water is turned off! :evil:

Sorry to hear about the boiler WW. Had to have ours replaced a couple of years ago :shock: Hope you can get it repaired again.

Dunno Mad, it's most odd. Glad you have water again. How's your bathroom coming on Dotsie? The boiler does need replacing but we are trying to hang on for a while longer.

Hope your boiler hangs on a bit longer WW, and your water doesn't make you poop Mad.

The bathroom was gutted last night except for the bath and toilet. The bath goes today. So I am going to be a pongy Dotsie indeed ;) (I'll just go to the gym for showers. I might even be persuaded to use the gym).
What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

It's a heck of a messy job fitting a bathroom and it gets a lot worse before it gets better. :?

How long will the bathroom be out of commission?

Mr Dotsie wants to do it all himself :shock: so when I ask for a timescale his head starts to wobble then explodes :lol: We're just taking it gently, all the while I'm assuring him that women don't really need bathrooms, honestly it's fine :lol: He's doing all this for our 'family', so he's feeling delicate - the weight of paternal responsibility is sitting heavily upon him.

Summary: ages!
