I bought this Heath Robinson for Dan (reflection of my lovely face is obviously a bonus for you to enjoy). Today he embraced that spirit.
As you know my life is all glamour and high-end living.
Yesterday Dan was in the kitchen and I was in the shower, he noticed some water coming through the ceiling. It was caused by the wonky tiles in the bathroom, I think I mentioned a few weeks ago that one had fallen off. Well, water is clearly getting behind them and we are unwilling to do anything about it until we have the bathroom redone - something we thought would be this year until the whole thing with the roof began.
So from the depths of the garage came our temporary solution
A couple of rubble sacks and some waterproof tape. Why not just have a bath instead you may ask, because the water pressure is terrible, we'd wait all night for the bath to fill.
We're also hoping that this solution will be a spur to further saving. We will have nothing but the baby emergency fund when we've paid for the roof so we are starting all over again with the kitchen and bathroom savings. Every time I see or think of this plastic I hope I will be reminded to not buy something unless it is really needed.
