for those who haven't read (or remembered) it from one of my rambling posts ... my wife and I bought a house built in the 1930's in a suburm right outside London.
1930's isn't that old for the area .. in fact quite average ...
but the condition we bought it in, It hadn't been decorated since the 1970's and some of the heating and wiring was still original.
So almost there ... these last two weeks have been putting in a new upstars bathroom and toilet. Yep .. they are separate in a lot of houses in England. Hence the term Bathroom is a room with a bathtub in it, and a "WC" is a small closet sized room with a toilet and (if you're lucky like we are) room for a tiny sink.
.. oh the fun ... but hard to concentrate on the card collecting with all the work .. and whenever we have had serious work done .. have to stay at the Inlaws.
not fun ..
