The end is nigh

 Regular readers might remember some 3 years ago the disaster that befell the bathroom when a builder and his monkey made a right pigs ear of fitting out our bathroom resulting in a room not fit for purpose, wet furnishings in the downstairs rooms when we used the bath or shower and a peculiar floating sensation when trying to balance on the toilet.
 Not to mention the wrecked floor, damaged bath, inept pipework and a whole catalogue errors that meant court action to get our money back.
 We have now managed to save enough (the tax man took the money we got back, easy come easy go) and have two very nice capable reliable and above all skilled builders fitting the replacement bathroom and making good the damage.
 Naturally yours truly was involved, as ever watched by an attentive Berner, in this case Mrs Bear.
 The radiators the last lot should have removed are now outside.
 The tiling they did was direct on to wall paper which is apparently a bad thing. But the plaster behind the wallpaper was the original mud and horsehair stuff so it all had to come off.
 Much to Mrs Bears annoyance as she wanted a walk.
 Then the floor had to be replaced, as did all the pipework,
 but with 3 of us on it for 3 days it almost
looked like a bathroom.......roll on next weekend when round two begins.
