Getting a roundtuit

Honestly, I could be the President of the Procrastinator’s Association, if they didn’t keep postponing their meetings. 

FlyLady has been a big help in making me Do It Now but I still manage to put things on a never ending ‘to do list’ that never seem to get done.

Three years ago a plumber knelt on my closed toilet and cracked the lid. 

Two years ago last Easter I had to replace the cistern downstairs. It came with a new toilet seat which wouldn’t fit the old toilet downstairs. I thought “I must put it upstairs and get rid of that cracked lid”.  So it sat around inside the back door for a few months, then one day, before visitors arrived, I put it in the shedlet.

A few weeks ago the plastic on the seat started to peel. Yuck.  So finally, yesterday, after putting it off all day I went and got it from the shedlet. It actually looked like it might even fit (So many things in this house aren’t standard, I assumed I’d have to much around with pliers and  adjusting bolts and whatever to make it work).

Instead I simply unscrewed the old seat by hand,  wiped down the loo, and installed the new seat. Took all of about, oh,  7 minutes and that included cleaning the hard to get to bit at the back.

Seven minutes! Seven!
