oops late

Another day's plumbing; the good news being that progress has been made. Am getting used to having only cold water...It takes me back to my youth. Perhaps that's why I feel comfortable living this way?
So proud of OH and his skills! Also his persistence and determination. So there's been intermittent calls of 'I need an extra pair of hands'.
Pardon the reminiscence...when I was a child the only water in the house was a cold mains supply, not even the dubious benefits of an immersion heater. It was only when we moved that we had a house where one chimney had a back boiler. So, if we lit a fire and kept it going, and used the damper...we got hot water.
It has to be a sign of aging...this revisiting the past...

'The past is a different country...they did things differently there'

Hi! Sorry for not replying for a few days but I was away. I'm glad the work is progressing well. How much longer?

Glad to have you back again, Joy!
No idea when the work will be finished.

Sounds like OH saved you lots of money doing this job himself. I would miss not having my hotwater for bathing...but looking back in the past, heating cold water was the norm. We are just spoiled now!

Yes, he's been saving money, but not time... At least the shower, washing machine and dishwasher are working as they are cold fill. I'll be glad when it's all finished.
