    Fixed my shower valves by bolting in a new mixer valve.
    All furred up inside again I expect like its predecessor.
    Why the new one was about 3mm wider between the inlets than the old one escapes me.
    Helium, because I'm worth it.
    Waterboarding at Guantanamo Bay sounded like a radical holiday opportunity until I looked it up.

    You are a hard water area like us. Did you ever contemplate some sort of on line water softener. I have thought about it over the years but never bothered. It is now a question of who lives longer the shower mixer or me!
    Evolution is great at solving problems. It's the methods that concern me.

    I spent half an hour crying this morning after seeing a 30 second montage of the memories of Mr Poopy Butthead (a character from Rick and Morty) in which his cat gets sick and dies. I think the flu is winning.

    I have been diagnosed with cellulitis - a skin infection - and am now on antibiotics. My face has swollen on one side and my skin is overly sensitive under my hair / beard to the point of being painful. All joined by a lovely fever and feeling like death warmed up. The only saving grace is that I have been told to keep myself hydrated which I have taken to mean drink plenty of tea - before anybody says that tea is a diuretic if that was such a serious matter I would have been a dried up husk many years ago.

    Anyway I am off to bed now as I need to wake up in the middle of the night with the shakes again. I can cope with feeling rubbish and lethargic, I just hate the teeth chattering cold followed by profuse sweating.

    As far from the sea as we could be, except when we can actually get in it.

    Sorry to read that and hope you're better soon.

    You have my sympathies cellulitis is not nice at all. I fully understand the shivering followed by the sweating!! I have bronchitis and have not slept properly for10 nights due to the constant coughing of green smelly yuck........

    Dirt cheap tools
    Hate 'em.

    It was a present. A couple of years ago admittedly.
    "Nigel mended things for us so we'll buy him a Christmas present"
    A little socket set of low mm sizes with 1/4" handles.
    Probably from the DIY isle at the supermarket.
    Made of Chinese clagite and about the strength of balsa wood.
    However I got used to reaching for it for small fittings.
    Then the 10mm socket opened up like a tulip on the screwdriver style handle, not even a lever.
    Now I have a very pretty set of tools with one annoying hole in the row.
    I can buy a new set (in balsa wood) cheaper than a single replacement socket (in steel).
    But I wouldn't buy one like that.
    Am I going to spend real money to replace something I didn't want just because I've got used to it?
