Checking my watch

(no subject)

I'm over at nemesis_to_go's place. Making him put floorboards down without botching it.

So far we have smashed up the old battleship grey fiberglass bath, pulled up broken floorboards... and put down replacements. Lets hope we get the bath upstairs and plumbed in by tonight because Uncle Nem is getting very dirty indeed.

I'm taking a few moments off while he screws down the new boards.

Now nemesis_to_go and I have moved onto installing the bath. Thanks to geodhinn for a quick confirmation on the whole installing the waste thing.

The bath has been in place, leveled, picked up, rechecked, put back several times. Unx is now screwing a baton to the wall then we put the bath back, where hopefully, it stays. Then connect up the taps and waste and "Jack's your father". However Unx informs me the wall is crumbling and won't hold the screws. Now there is lot of banging. I had better go and see what's going on.

Bath in. Oh the joys of "push to fit" couplings.
"Push to leak" more like.

And isn't it typical? You find you need a few extra bits at 4pm on a Sunday afternoon... just as all the DIY stores have to close so the Lords Day Observance Society doesn't smite them. However we botched around missing parts.

Andi has provided curry and ice cream. Yum!
