'cos I have no bathroom.

But I am wearing clean laundry

It's end of term for the kids, so we decided to ensure that we ensured they had a really good holiday by sending them to their grandparents. In the meantime, my home is in the process of being remodelled.

I did have a pokey WC and a separate bathroom, but now the dividing wall between them has gone, and my awful pink bathroom suite is being replaced by something practical and white. Strangely, there was about 18" of lost space in the WC because of a false wall which hid nothing in particular. Also the bastards didn't quite build the bathroom large enough, so they embedded the bath into the wall, a fact which was only discovered when we removed it.

Only the WC has been fitted at present, due mainly to some weird pipework hiding underneath the floor courtesy of the 1970s cowboys who built my house. This evening should see the installation of hot tub goodness, so I can shower, soak and use less deoderant.

On Friday night, the kids come back with an extra visitor. Mrs Mouse has a friend who has 5 children now aged between 14-20, who all moved out of their parents home at an early age for various insane reasons, related to boyfriends in 4 out of 5 instances1. Anyway the youngest one is coming to stay for a week. Apparently she has belatedly gained some sense and is going back to school after assiduously evading doing so for about a year. I think I shall spend some late nights in work.

Nothing doing here, I'm turning into CU.

Today I am wearing blue chinos, with a blue striped shirt. I am also wearing black boxers with a red check. Only the fact I am wearing a jumper to keep warm offsets my sartorial elegance.

1. I was not involved. Really.

Shudder.  Mine goes on Tuesday, dependent on past cowboy shennanigans.  They're a crime against both man and nature.

The real question is, what were people in the 70s thinking?

Those crazy plumbers by skippy (2.00 / 0) #4 Thu Apr 06, 2006 at 01:48:13 PM EST
We had some similar retarded plumbing-ness at our current place - except ours was done by early 80s cowboy plumbers.

I think the best part is that the water shutoff for our half of the duplex shuts everything off - except one toilet.  Either it's plumbed off of the neighbour's supply, or (as I fear) the only way to disable it is to shut off the supply at the edge of the property where it comes from the city.  And I have no idea where that valve is.
