A free draining bathroom sink really is a thing to be appreciated. Regular followers of my blog know that 2 weeks ago under “Serious Stats” I wrote about my misfortunes with my blocked sink.
Well for another 2 weeks we have tried all sorts of things (Except the obvious, getting in a plumber), the sink has drained slowly, pathetically and not at all. So this weekend my “To Do List” had just 2 items on it. SORT SINK being the most important.
I have discovered that my role in this household is much more than I thought. My moods, motivation, enthusiasm or laziness affect the rest of the family. I watched almost as a visitor the change in the family as I swung into a serious amount of cleaning, tidying and de-cluttering. With only a bit of chivvying on Saturday, off went my husband to the local DIY store for a long drain cleaner. He had minimal success with a fair bit of huffing and puffing. But I continued with my enthusiasm, suggesting a pressure hose (No we wont go there again! Check out my “Just for laughs blog”) and I went to bed sending a little request for a sink angel to whisper advice into my husband’s ear.
Sunday morning, with the sink now totally blocked my husband returned to the DIY store without any nagging for a longer sink cleaner pipe, and Voila! the blockage was removed. A huge hair ball, bigger than any cat could produce seemed to be the problem. Thank-you, Thank-you all good Angels!
Meanwhile I’m deep into reading “Stress Proof Your Life” By Elisabeth Wilson. Available FREE on Kindle. Perhaps I should lend it to my husband to read! It does talk a lot of sense.
