Two years on

Published by Resurgam in the blog Resurgam's blog. Views: 504

Well - yesterday was the second anniversary of my diagnosis.
So far so good.
My kitchen sink blocked up, so today I had the job of moving things out of the way to get to the drain, finding it was blocked up, so then I needed to get the unblocker, a bucket and various accessories and get to work unblocking it.
So far the drains from two sinks have been undone and the gunge removed, and once the last one is reassembled normal service should be resumed.
Sometimes I am glad that I can and will tackle these jobs - but sometimes, when I am up to the eyebrows in - stuff - I wonder if I should be less practical and not so gung ho about it.
It would mean having to pay out money to other people, and to contrive to make dinner without a functional sink - so perhaps it isn't a sensible option really.
And it is Friday - I might have needed to wait until Monday to get a plumber to call.
No - far better to brave the slime and get it sorted out.
Onwards and upwards.
