Ever started a job then wished you hadn't?

Yesterday I decided I'd had enough of the cooker being forced into the middle of the kitchen by the plumbing for the washing machine. At first look it was am easy job to move the pipes... But it ended up with the dismantling of a cabinet of drawers and a lot of buggering about. That done, eventually, I turned to the main job of the day. Removal of the deep fried kitchen carpet. Sounds so easy, just say "remove carpet", easy as pie. Nope! Glued down with the world's strongest glue. Took hours to rip it up. The carpet took up large areas of concrete with it. Now going to put down a temporary floor of hardboard and vinyl tiles.
In other news...p
I'm going to ay the fireplace man later today. So I'll be on bread and water for the next few months. This means I'll have to make a decision about hearth tiles. It's a good problem to have.
