Today could have gone better shall we say.
Me and Mick started work yesterday on fitting the heated towel rail which will move the bathroom to almost 100% completion so that I can move on to the bedroom.
Me and Nicky went out for the day s we had a birthday party to go to for Chloe, who was 1 year old a few weeks back. We came back from the party and everything was fitted, and all that was left to do was to re-fill the heating system and away it went.
So me and Mick turn the water back on and fire it all up to find that the system wasn’t filling. After much farting around, we got it all filled again, only to realise that in the farting about process, we’d managed to burn the motor out of the central heating pump – Not good. A quick time check revealed that the time was about 6pm – Too late for a Sunday to be going shopping for DIY parts! I’ve emailed my boss to as khim very kindly if he could excuse me for an hour in the morning so that me and Mick can fit a new pump from B&Q, so let’s hope he says yes, else no hot water for a few days which wouldn’t be good really.
After all that drama, our current cat/flea issue is still ongoing with Nicky cleaning faster than a professional cleaner to try to rid them in our house, only for me to think that pesky Kira is undoing Nicky’s hard work. Whilst all this was going on it appears that one of the floor tiles in the bathroom has snapped – Namely the one under the toilet, so that means another weekened me and Mick will be disconnecting the toilet, lifting about 4 floor tiles to refit a replacement one, which hopefully this time won’t snap.
Let’s hope the coming week goes better than this weekend, otherwise a grumpy Richard may appear the other side of it all.
