Not a good night last night DB was awake so we ended up drinking tea and reading for a couple of hours.
We slept in, so did not have our usual porridge but beans on toast for breakfast instead.
Over the past few days we have been having a problem with the toilet, its one of these new fangled ones with a button you push, On Wednesday I thought it was taking a long time to fill, discovered the water was not filling the cistern just running straight through. I managed to stop it a couple of times, but we reported it to the agents,
Since then we have had to wedge the arm up and use a bucket to flush. DB phoned the agents this morning and was told that because we had put in a second request for the plumber, we were due to get the shower fitted last week which was not done, we had gone to the bottom of the plumbers list. Added to which the plumber had family problems and was only doing emergency work. Why did they not ring and tell us this???? Why do they not have more than one plumber available for emergency work? DB could not get any answer except that the plumber would contact us on Monday. They then accused us of being too needy!!
I consider a toilet not flushing to be a health and safety matter. to have to use a bucket of water is not the most hygienic way to flush a toilet. Anyone will tell you that flushing a toilet with the lid up can send microscopic bits of faeces flying up into the atmosphere, the thought of them landing on any surface in the bathroom makes me feel ill.
DB has phoned the LL I guess we will be in trouble for doing that. She is paying them to sort out jobs, they are not doing what they are paid for, They will still deduct the service change before sending the rental on to them.
Hey ho tomorrow is another day and we will be flushing the toilet with a bucket for at least 2 more days.
