Yesterday MOTH & I were forced to have a second attempt shopping for bathroom tiles & all the fittings. We tried about 6 weeks ago, but the whole thing ended in tears, with the Store Manager almost calling security to break us up, me storming out of the store in exasperation & no speakies for the rest of the day. However, this time MOTH rightly enough saw sense in all my choices, so Reece Plumbing at Mt. Barker were able to breath a little easier & stand-down the 4 Pinkerton guards they'd hired when they found out we were on our way again! We are under the pump to finalize everything as Russell the Plumber wants to start doing all the pipe-work on Thursday.
MOTH worked all weekend at a customer's place, but did spend a few hours starting our bathroom framework on Sunday night. Yes, that is a chink of night sky peeping through the hole in the wall! He also pulled down the existing plasterboard ceiling, only to be greeted with the most amazing sight - the original 1972 straw ceiling. This hideous stuff has been present hiding away in every other room, but honestly, what were they thinking when they put it in a BATHROOM of all places!
Yes, I know it looks terrible at the moment, but never fear, MOTH has worked wonders for me in other bathrooms & I know this one will be just as good.
