    Not the way to be spending the last Sunday before christmas, but fed up with the bathrom being half done, and the kids are at their Dad's. So here I am!! I'm doing the bit behind the toilet and sink. It's a bit like crazy paving. LOL. I hate DIY. I need a man!!

    Have you surfaced yet? Hope its going well and will be finished in time for Friday. Do it yourself it will be, get a man to do it and noooooo chance babes. Sorry chaps! My O/H is rubbish at DIY and when ever I ask him to do something he just says to me DIY lol.

    I think the idea of a man is two-fold.

    1. Nag them enough, and they'll PAY someone else to do it, just to shut you up.

    2. Once you have a man to keep you busy, who cares about a bit of tiling!!!! ;)

    I ahve surfaced and grouted!! Not 100% happy witht he result! You're right!! My ex would never have done it. He made everything sound so hard that I didn't dare tackle it myself. And refused to paysomeone else to do it, cos he could LEARN to do it! But that bathroom really needed doing! When I ripped out the bath, the ANgling Times from July 1977 was still underneath it!! DOne now. Just the flooring to go! Oh and the purchase of some decorator's cork where bits need a little bodging. It looks so much better than it did!! Now panicking to get stuff done for christmas cos this took my time and energy! Still the kids have got a Wii so they won't care about much else!! Who needs turkey?!
