This twat of a bathroom had three layers of tiles and when I got to the corner half the floor is fucked with rotten wood. It's currently covered by a piece of ply with damp stains all around. Saving the surprise til tomorrow. 

Who the fuck thinks it is acceptable to tile over tiles?

My father-in-law can't understand why I've gone to the effort of taking up a tiled floor back to the subfloor when we could have just put a new floor on top. Err, because that's ridiculous?

Apparently it's done (on floors - not fucking walls) because the base is level. So you *can* tile over them and most tilers apparently would but for bathrooms it's often worth the extra hard work to see if there's any further damage underneath.

I put Mr C on a plane this morning and then was out for the rest of the morning. 

I got back and went to do some washing up. No hot water. I ran the tap for a while longer and the water’s just getting colder and colder. It’s Friday afternoon, who am I going to get out to fix a boiler? Mmm, maybe I should check that first. I went through, saw that the needle on the  presssure gauge had dropped to zero, who knows why, opened the valve and after a few seconds of nothing saw the needle judder into life and I’ve reset the thing and the hot water’s restored. Oh, how happy am I

Chemical Ali eat your heart out!

 

our patio was looking a bit tired so I ordered some sodium hypochlorite a few weeks ago.  Nice day today so went out and treated it, it’s come up like new and I have enough left over to dissolve that cunt NT’s body if I ever catch up with him.

My front driver side tyre got a flat last week so have been driving on my spare. Got a part worn from my neighbour who is a mechanic and had it in my boot. Got to uni early today and decided to change it. Incidentally I give two of my cohorts who are incidentally attractive young women (no pics lads, it's 2019) a lift. They both drive but we car share and neither knew how to change a tyre. 10 minutes tops it took me and there was much biting of lips and flushed upper chests from my audience*

 

It was a far cry from having to call my brother and then green flag because I couldn't get the flattie off as it was stuck (they had to use a rubber mallet to get it off in the end) which wasn't my finest hour.

My mrs does all our DIY, cleans the gutters, digs holes, changes roof tiles etc. I see her, dependent upon my mood, as being expendable/invaluable .

 

Yesterday, rather selfishly, she wouldnt drop everything she was doing so I fixed the fuel line on the lawn mower. Her little face was a picture as she, wrapped up in 4 layers, cut the grass in the darkening light.

Spent the day cutting up wood, then splitting it with an axe for an old fella with a wood burner who needs it.

 

I'd love to have a proper fire again, but in lieu of that, I'll settle for cutting the wood. Putting split wood into a nice neat log pile is as satisfying as ever.

They say wood fires heat you twice - once when you chop it an once when you burn it. Not very environmentally friendly though, I get though a huge pile every winter

Good work. I particularly like having a shower next to the toilet; if you run out of loo roll you can always create a makeshift bidet / powerwasher to remove any stubborn pudding residue.

In Thailand they have a bum gun fitted to most toilets, it's a high pressure water gun fitted to a hose and is absolutely perfect when you get the runs which is quite a common occurrence in that part of the world. I ended up using it for most plops, those guys know how to crimp in luxury. Well at least polish their rusty sheriff's badge. 

 

Back to your point, I like to put the shower on power jet mode and blast the potential skids away.

Most of SE Asia and the Middle East have them. They're really cheap and easily fitted, they just use a three way fitting on the cistern supply. Ebay is your friend.

Once you use them, you'll never go back to paper. And if you can train your missus to use it you will save a fortune on bog rolls.

They're not that high pressure - you don't give yourself an enema when you use them.

    • And the next round of objections to be raised, with Brighton once again appearing at the forefront of objections now the resumption of the league is in sight, are:   The Premier League are facing dissent from several clubs over a number of proposed rule changes for the resumption of the season. Sportsmail has learned that plans to increase the number of substitutes from three to five, to allow clubs to re-register players not named in their 25-man squads in January and to introduce a multi-ball system all have detractors. There is also unhappiness at some clubs about the Premier League's unwillingness to reconsider the use of VAR, which FIFA ruled last month could be abandoned for the rest of the campaign.   These issues are likely to lead to a fierce debate at Thursday's meeting of club executives, ahead of a formal vote on any rule changes next week. Each change would need 14 of the 20 clubs in favour to pass.  Many clubs support increasing substitutions to five due to injury fears in a congested schedule after a lengthy break, with Chelsea submitting a proposal to increase the number of substitutes on the bench from seven to nine, as revealed by Sportsmail on Monday.  But several other clubs argue making such a major change mid-season would damage the competition's integrity, while those with smaller squads feel they would be at a disadvantage.   Managers who pride themselves on their players' fitness and work ethic are also concerned at losing such advantages. Brighton coach Graham Potter went public with his opposition last month and many relegation-threatened clubs agree. Aston Villa would be obvious beneficiaries of allowing clubs to re-register players.  Goalkeeper Tom Heaton and striker Wesley were originally omitted due to knee injuries, but may now be fit to play.  Villa's relegation rivals are likely to oppose such a move, however, and could be joined by clubs who are still to face Smith's side, such as Wolves and Manchester United who are chasing European football next season. Some clubs feel the multi-ball proposal will deny players the time to recover from fatigue when the ball is out of play, which is particularly problematic with games being played in the middle of summer. The rationale is to limit lengthy stoppages when the ball is kicked into empty stands.   https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-8378005/Plans-increase-subs-five-register-players-lead-dissent-Premier-League-ranks.html
    • Dont remember too much thuggery about 1970 , but even at League level in England it was very difficult to get sent off without committing a criminal offence at that time. The strange thing was that Brazil were a beautiful side and probably the best international side ever, yet within 4 years had become a shower of mediocre cloggers in Germany.
    • Also on the old tournaments and away games in Europe, I love how the commentator sounds proper muffled, like he’s in the middle of nowhere where they barely have transmission. Makes crucial away goals seem so cool and important. i read recently that Barry Davies used to do it by phone. Does anyone know if that’s true?
    • It was the first time red and yellow cards where used, there was a particular woeful decision to allow Mexico a goal against El Salvador, apparently when the ball was placed on the centre spot for them to kick off again they kept kicking it away, and as it was close to half time the Ref decided the best course of action was to blow for half time, I wonder how that would go down today?  Didn't El Salvador and Honduras go to war after, maybe 69 so plenty of shithousery there I expect.  It's always been there, was it Portugal who kicked Pele out of the 66 tournament?
