Flush With Excitement!


I'm skipping around with joy this morning, as today's the day in the Bathroom-From-Hell! Yes, thanks to Russell the Plumber, by the time I come home from work tonight we will be a 2 loo family again - HOORAY! As it's a rather delicate subject I won't labour the point, but having spent the past 18 months sharing just the one 'facility' with everyone, I'm so, so ready to unshare. The situation has not been helped by the fact that anyone wanting to use the said busy 'facility', has had to traipse through our bedroom to get to it in the En-Suite. This is a momentous day in the journey of renovations here at The Hedge & appropriate celebrations are in order!

LATE ADDENDUM: Despite promising on scout's honour he wouldn't before I had the chance to see it in all it's pristine white porcelain beauty tonight, MOTH's just rang me at work to gleefully announce he couldn't wait & he's 'christened' the new loo. They just never grow up do they, he really is 61 going on 6.

  3. Oh Millie, that's so exciting! We had the same issue during our bathroom reno, and it certainly isn't fun having your ensuite as the only available loo - especially when your sister-in-law, her husband and three boys decide to come and stay for 10 days - my sanity was stretched to breaking point! Cannot be happier for you - I think you should claim it as your own for a while - you deserve it! K xx

  7. I was thinking it wasn't too bad until I read the "traipse through our bedroom" bit. Oh the joys of renovating!

  14. Congratulations Millie - I'd say that celebration of the bubbly kind is definitely appropriate, just like the launch of a new ship - although please don't chip the new pristine porcelain!!!
    Enjoy, kind regards, Christine
