Grateful for my very own Mr Miyagi
Sssshhhh! There's a master at work.
He's a very small, very intense man of Korean origins (so my Japanese Mr Miyagi joke is quite politically inappropriate!!!)
He's our tiler.
He's putting KATcapers out of our 4 weeks (yes that's right) without a bathroom misery.
Am I GRATEFUL for our little Korean wizard? You betcha! If he wasn't quite so humourless I'd be lavishing kisses all over his wizened little head!!!
Our bathroom is the ONE and ONLY bathroom in our house. Being without it has been a chore (is that the biggest understatement in the history of the world...or at the very least KATcapers?)
I'm not blaming anyone, it's pointless pointing fingers (or knives, scissors, nail files or any other sharp implement I get my hands on).
It's been better just to smile in the style of the Virgin Mary (or slightly less religious smily people) and retain some dignity whilst I do my ablutions in the laundry tub whilst the United Nations of tradespeople traipse past me every day!
My ass has been dragging itself out of bed even earlier than is usual (for my walks) so I could get my gear and run out the door (I'm pretty excited about the prospect of running water on my head and not my hands) as I drive over the 'bridge' to the gym and after getting my walk in cherish the five minutes or so I can manage under the shower before dashing off to work.
Ah the joys of renovating:)
Grateful Saturday you have never been blessed with such a heartfelt utterance!!!!
