Another error!

After stupidly locking myself in one of the new rooms in one of the gites I have been determined not to make any more silly mistakes. It didn’t last long. Today I have been building new shower cubicles. All was going well, in fact there has been considerable progress, in that the water has all been connected and the taps and loos are all in working order. Instead of having to nip outside for natural relief, it has been a pleasure to have proper facilities at hand. There I was enjoying the plastering and the project was advancing smoothly. But again a call of nature intervened. No problem, we have a loo in the same room. In mid stream and far away in my thoughts, a downward glance revealed an open sewer pipe. Bugger, Bugger, Bugger, I had forgotten that this loo has been disconnected so that I could do some plasterboarding around it. The error was underlined by the inexorable advance of the tidal wave approaching my feet. Much cussing and mopping consumed the following minutes. When peeing always check that the loo is connected!!


  1. Well, at least you weren’t able to flush it!!
    “and far away in my thoughts”
    Look, you must be tired…
    take a rest for a day or two and….
    enjoy the wonderful RAIN!!

  2. It never rains but it pours.!
