God Bless “The Sink Angel”

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.

She’s Gotta Be Mine by Jasmine Haynes and Jennifer Skully

She’s Gotta Be Mine by Jasmine Haynes and Jennifer Skully.

Started to read this lovely chic lit last evening and am really enjoying it. Picked it up as a “free book” for Kindle. Roberta’s husband has left her for an old school heart-throb, she bravely sets out to give him a run for his money and re-asserts herself with a funky new hair cut and clothes. She moves house, changes her car, her job and her life. Now she is racy Bobby… You Go girl!!!!
