When we moved in the estate agent apologised for the lack of bath in this house. To be honest, it almost never bothers us, and the double-size shower has been very handy. However, in the interests of resale and for a good, post-run soak, we are finally getting the plumbers in. They don't have much to do: change the light fittings for bathroom safe ones, fit an extractor fan, take all the tiles down, re-plaster, re-tile, fit a bath, change the floor, change the sink, paint, fit a heated towel rail... 

So here, for posterity, is the bathroom as it looked this morning:

bathroom-shower

The double-size not-a-bath and weird boxed in bit at the end.

bathroom-sink

The sink and window. You can also see the beautiful skirting board, that gathers dirt and dust like anything.

bathroom-toilet

The toilet and other weird boxed in bit. Oh, and the dado rail, which also gathers dirt and dust. 

bathroom-dolphins

The lovely dolphins. I won't be missing them. 

I shall be attempting to remain slightly dehydrated for the day, so I don't need to use the loo. They've promised us they won't leave us without a toilet and some form of washing facilities overnight, and they are supposed to be done in 2 weeks. There is even an outside chance we'll discover where to turn the water off inside the house... How exciting!
