Progress at last…

After recent setbacks, Dave has forged ahead today and made great progress.   He’s tiled around the shower space, plumbed in the tray and fitted several units to the walls.   Dials, nozzles, and that sort of thing.

To our great relief, he says the wiring job is beyond him and he will have to call in expert help.  An electrician will arrive first thing tomorrow and do whatever’s needed.

I have, for some days,  entertained a fear that the first time I stepped into the shower and switched it on I’d be fried to a crisp – water and electrics rarely mixing except with fatal consequences.  Especially, I would imagine, where Dave is concerned.

That he will not be touching anything he shouldn’t be is a bonus, and no mistake.

Things are looking up at last.

Thought for the day

‘I was once locked in the fridge for a laugh.   I didn’t find it funny.  Quite honestly, it left me cold.’

Boris Yeltsin (1931-2007)


About Chester Crump

Chester J Crump has spent a lifetime in cheese. His company, CC Cheese Ltd, was voted Door to Door magazine’s ‘Smallest Retailer of the Year’ from 1985-2007. Cheddar Today described him as ‘Chester Crump, aged 45’, while the UK’s most successful broadsheet, The Daily Telegraph, has never mentioned him at all. In his spare time, and under a completely different name, Chester has written gags and sketches for a wide range of TV and radio shows both in the UK and mainland Europe (BBC1, ITV, S4C, Radio 2, Radio 4 and the World Service – among others). A published writer for children, teenagers and adults, he has also performed stand-up comedy across Yorkshire and, in 2011, at the Edinburgh Fringe. Ten years ago, he was rumoured to be the constant companion of Sarah Michelle Gellar – TV’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and, more recently, that girl out of EastEnders whose name no one can remember. When he’s not writing his blog, Chester attends second-hand hat conventions, and has what many believe to be the largest collection of used headgear in Yorkshire. He is married to a woman, and lives in a house. All the above is completely true – with the possible exception of the bits about cheese. And Buffy. And EastEnders. And hats.
