Despite it being a reasonable day here-actually sun at the mo, but soooo soggy- darent go outside to do things as am keeping an 'eye', on OH. Keep being consulted, as he has started to 'fit' some shelves back into my 'ex-airing' cupboard. Daughter is planning to paint it inside before OH glues the shelving slats in place. Slight problem is she's going out soon, so wont do until tomorrow & has insisted that she does it. Another day of stuff all over the place, but I cant be bothered to argue any more........
We did have a major crisis last night- heating on, getting too warm, when OH went into study/his workshop to see water cascading down the back wall!!
The elderly bath tap just couldnt stand the high pressure from the new system & was leaking BIG time! Of course it was my fault that OH hadnt got a new washer of the correct size. Oh & of course all his valuable old magazines & paperwork dumped under the table/ on shelves in there were getting wet!
So some temporary repair done involving a jey cloth wrapped around the tap & allowing the water to drip into the bath, not down the pipe & the wall.No drip in the workshop now- phew.
Today, new washer purchased, fitted & even a new seal around the bath been done. Ok having a new bath done at end of month, but needs must. On a +ve note the shower is now sooo fierce that daughter turned the nozzzle to a less intense setting. Roll on the new one though.
Am off to investigate the paint situation though..... J.
