Congratulations to him, and to you for your undoubted support (and finance... ).

Osem Jnr # 2 made us laugh the other day when mum was loading the washing machine in the morning ready for it to wash over night as usual and hang out the next day, which is his little job around the home. He helped her put the detergent in and carefully shut the door then disappeared, came back with the washing basket and proceeded to open the machine to take it all out. Evidently he thought you just pop the dirty washing in, close the door and it's done. If only things were as simple as they are in his world...
I think it's great that Osem Jnr # 2 helps out his Mum Osem. I have said it before and I'm saying it again what a lovely young man you have there. My eldest leaves everything on the floor from the bathroom to his bedroom there is a trail of dirty washing whereas my youngest is a clean freak like me.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

After a couple of days off from it all, I've finally hacked off the last of the bathroom tiles and adhesive.
The walls aren't too bad but there's a little filling to be done and then hopefully I can get on with the tiling next week.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

We went to see our friend this afternoon in hospital and they are planning for him to go home soon where nurses will come in several times a day to give him palliative care as his wish was to pass away in his own home surrounded by loved ones.

If the option exists I think this is the best way.

Indeed the two options were to be at home or to go to a hospice but the hospice scenario is very unlikely now heero.

It's the best option for everyone usually, best of luck to him

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

I've just had my delivery of 300 400mm x 250mm tiles for my bathroom/toilet project. Thankfully they're as nice as they looked on the website and having laid a box full out on the floor, I was relieved that the overall quality seems very good so far (consistent shading, regular tile size etc). They all come from the same batch too which is a relief lol.

Right now I'm glad I went for much larger tiles than the 200mm x 150mm ones they're replacing because it'll mean a lot less grouting to have to apply and maintain. IT's amazing to think that the 300 new tiles will cover the same area as 1000 of the old ones.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Our holly bush has been purposely allowed to grow a bit wild this year (it's a good 15ft high now) and the honey bees and bumble bees are loving the flowers. The garden is buzzing with them, literally.

Got the first of my bathroom tiles up (1.5 sq m) and they look great so far.
