What I learned from that experience was that if anything is going to improve in this house, it’s down to me to sort it out. I love my husband dearly, but he isn’t in the slightest bit handy or interested in home improvements.
Did I tell you the fiasco we had over having a new window fitted? We had new doors and a window due for installation while my husband was working away in London. I met with the salesman, and the surveyor and had everything sorted.
I told my other half everything was in hand, and that when he came home the installation would be complete. The window that was being removed had an alarm sensor fitted to it. When the chap came to remove the window he asked about silencing the alarm. We have a tag, that you wave at a box that silences the alarm if it goes off.
We know it’s the only thing that does it as we had an incident where teen managed to set of the alarm and my husband had to come home from work to silence it. We only have one tag, and my husband keeps it on his keyring, so guess where the tag was when the window was fitted. Yep, London! We live in Nottingham!
Anyway, after much deliberation about whether the alarm would go off, the fitter took some advice from a colleague and decided to risk it. Fortunately the alarm didn’t go off, and the new window was fitted without a problem. It could have been a lot worse.
Anyway, enough of that story, now I need to sort the bathroom. I need to present my husband with some perfect, affordable bathroom makeover ideas so he doesn’t have to worry about a thing apart from saying yes. You know I’ve got this covered don’t you?
