Bill just came home for lunch and we finished off the batch of cheese and potato pasties I made on Monday night. We both agree that my recipe is pretty darned good now. I used Vidalia onions this time and they really added to the flavour, oh and I also threw in a few mushrooms that needed using up. Next time Bill wants me to make double or triple the quantity so he can eat them for an entire week!
Oooh I love pasties!!
On the way to table tennis on Saturday Bill spotted a toilet on the side of the road. It was a pretty good match for the sink he found a few months ago and so after a little deliberation he hauled it into the back of the truck. (Wouldn’t catch me touching it!)
When we got home he set to work with bleach and the hose and cleaned it off nicely. It seems to be in one piece and should work okay so why it was thrown out remains a mystery…our only clue was two bent pieces of wire jammed into the bottom of it!
Bill spoke to his friend Marshall who often trawls the streets for lavatories and other salvageables and he wasn’t at all surprised. He said that most of the time when he finds a loo being chucked it isn’t actually broken but has some weird, wonderful and usually grim find lurking within blocking its workings. Easy to solve, but some folks seem to just go out a buy a new loo without investigating the problem.
Anyway, seeing as we now have a new loo and sink for null pence we’ve decided to stall the bedroom redecoration and go all out on the bathroom instead. A big undertaking, but it’s okay, Bill went to Home Depot and bought a book!
Of course, this means that all my efforts to repatch the bathroom wall, successful as they were, were in vain. Bill reckons that if we’re going to redo the room then we should be replacing the wallboards in there completely too as cement backer boards would be more appropriate. Oh well.
