Focus and Primp

Here's a sentence you don't write everyday - I read something really positive on Facebook yesterday, this article, it asks the question 

"Why can't you accomplish your ten year goal in the next six months?".

I don't have a ten year plan, but we do have some things we want to do, and it got me thinking, why can't we accomplish some of our goals that we think will take another 8 months, or a year, or more. I spoke to Dan about it and with a bit of thrashing about (and in Dan's case getting wrapped up in the detail) we think we're going to move one of our end of the year goals to a spring one. 

We need to have some work done on the bathroom (you can see our temporary leak solution here) and were going to have everything replaced, we then downscaled the job - by deciding to keep the original bath and sink and just have new tiles, shower, toilet, cabinet, light, radiator, flooring, bath panel and bath screen. We've now decided to just replace the tiles, shower, cabinet, light, bath panel and bathscreen. Eventually we're going to need new central heating so we're going to live with the radiator we have until then. I know we should probably have the heating done first but I am sick of showering in a place covered with plastic bags to stop the water leaking into the kitchen and we won't have enough money to do both.

Assuming we can find someone willing to do such a small job we're hoping to have it done around March or April. I'm almost excited!

  1. It sounds like a needed home repair as much as bath redo so good decision. I need to pull the lever and get going as well on a few jobs.

    1. I know that the vast majority of people would have the whole thing replaced, and in an ideal world I would too, but it will be fine.

  3. You are getting your priorities right there, it is annoying when things go wrong, but at the end of the day we can only spend what we have, just by having some new tiles and the things you say you are changing will be good enough, it will look fantastic x

    1. Thanks. When I thought about what we went through having our old bathroom done I just couldn't face it. Plus we'd probably have ended up with a plastic bath rather than the one we have now.

  4. Good for you, hope you manage to find someone to do it for you.

  5. Excellent, if you find a good plumber they could put the pipes in for the radiator whilst they do the rest. then when the heating is done you connect it up? ask the question they may save you money

    1. Good idea. We do already have a radiator in there, but I will certainly talk to them about a radiator that will work with our old rickety system v any new one we have fitted in the future.

    2. it will probably be to do with the width of the pipes... one pipe fitting to another size

  6. I hope you find someone to do the work. It will be wonderful for you not to have to worry about the leak.

    God bless.

    1. Thanks, it will just be one less thing to think about for a while.
