Our house has been in a mess since August last year,the main reason being is we have had to have several jobs done twice due to unscrupulous 'professionals'!
I personally would love to have the house finished now, but to be quite frank I am running out of steam, I am now 53!
Let me explain, at the age of 50 after 3 long years of hard studying, as a single parent to 2 fantastic understanding daughters, and holding down a part time job, I qualified as an Occupational Therapist. Unfortunately I have had to give my short career in mental health up, to look after elderly parents aged 87 & 91. Don't get me wrong I wouldn't have it any other way, and care homes are not an option for me, but this situation has split our family up, due to different opinions regarding care provision for our parents, between myself and 3 older sisters, which has left me as the main carer.
I'd now love the bathroom to be finished. I've had the door moved in preparation for a quadrant shower, but the door now doesn't shut! I've paid for plastering twice, and to be quite frank as things stand with restricted finances available, I'm looking at a few years down the line to get the bathroom finished . I've never been, or my parents before me, one to have something for nothing and I hate to complain (hence paying twice for some things i.e. everyone has to learn) but really, genuinely this would be a dream come true.
