Friday 13th

What sort of a Friday 13th did you have? I’m not superstitious but my Friday did not go how I had planned.

I’m on the final revisions of the final chapter of my book – the most important part where I need to make sure everything comes together satisfactorily. I don’t like interruptions at that stage.

So what happened? My DH was fitting a new waste pipe under the bathroom sink – it was one of those jobs he’s done lots of times before – I should just add here that my DH is a very good handyman, there are not many jobs he can’t do. But on this occasion it wouldn’t go right. There was a persistent leak – not much but enough to be a nuisance and nothing he did seemed to cure it. I was constantly being called in to check while he fiddled with something else.

Then, to top it all, the bowl he’d put underneath to catch the water, which by this time had quite a lot in it, slipped out of his hands and spilled all over the floor. I won’t repeat his words here. So me, being the ever-loving wife said, ‘Don’t worry, darling, I’ll clean it up for you.’

Something else I should point out is that the bathroom door and my study door are right opposite each other so I had no chance of pretending that I didn’t know what was going on.

We are now waiting for the plumber (who, typically, was away for the weekend).

And my book is still not finished.
