So, no work on the infamous terace but as luck would have it another job in the house came up this morning. Luscious had just taken a shower before going off to work and was just hanging the towel up on the towel rail when THUD! the bloody towel rail has partially fallen off the wall! That sodding plumber is bloody useless. The three brackets that are supposed to fix the rail to the wall have never shall we say been level but they have have now pulled out of the plasterboard and the towel rail is sort of hanging by its screw ends and supported by its plumbing!
To the rescue, i can't just screw it back on to the wall, oh no, that would be far to simple. The screw fixings have pulled great chunks of plasterboard out as well. I have to support the radiator, take off the brackets and refit them with stronger fixings in different places and then repair the damage done by the old ones which were not up to the job.
Bloody typical, then perhaps i can get on with the job that i wanted to get done or at least partially finished today the rendering of a wall in the bedroom. It's never dull here eh?
