I startd my bathroom re-vamp. There was no nice tap on the hot water
cistern in the loft, so had to turn the cold stop cock (not oftn you get
away with usinh that work in a newsgroup eh?) off, and drain it allllllllll
down. I got the taps off the bath, crikey were they welded on? I had bought
a brand new shiny adjustable tap tool, because my trusty BLUE tap tool was
pant's in the awkward space.
I managed to reuse one pipe and tap connector, but had to fit a flexi
connector for the one *furthest* *away*
But they work :-)
It took an hour of frowning to get the taps off the sink, no chance to
re-use the tap connectors because of some weird tap post size, so flexi
connectors with shut off valves (aren't they lovely) went on them.
Rightho, lets get the loo from the hallway, now there's room to swing a
small sparrow. I take them out of there little wrappers... Hmmmm the cistern
has no way of being bolted to the pan, well, who cares, it'll be secured to
So I position it up against the poo pipe jutting out from the floor (I've
got my P connector), yep looks ok; then I put the cistern on the top to see
where to ram the wall fixings, and, my heart basins, sorry, sinks. It's
threeinches away from the wall.
I'm not beaten yet. I measure&mark where it should be then move the pan and
cistern out of the way to take up the botched floor job underneath, to see
if I can modify the plactic waste pipe.
The floor board pieces are secured with an assortment of ordinary, super
rusting, rammed right in screws.
I've squirted all twelve of them with rust melting WD40 and come here with a
cup of tea and a ciggy to have a moan.
Will I be able to modify the pipe? Will i even be able to get the floor up?
I'll tell you what will happen, I'll have to crow bar the floor up, then
have to buy wood to replace the broken pieces (this time I'll use two pieces
instead of the *SIX*
that are ther shall I?!) and I won't be able to modify
the pipe, then I'll have to go and search for a bog that costs twice the 
Roll on tomorrow, cause I have to go to work soon :-wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
