Today , my youngest daughters (age 9) six week new pierced ears regime was up ,which means that she can wear any earrings and not the sleepers that she got her ears pierced with.
so this morning she is putting her brand new earrings in before school, nice little strawberries and she drops one of them ,she thinks she dropped it down the sink plughole, so being the perfect dad i tell her dont worry i can take the sink apart and get it for you, she stops crying and i set about taking the pedestal from under the basin so i can get at the swan neck,
the bloody pedestal is jammed real tight on the lino and tight under the sink, after pulling back the lino and messing for ages i finally get the swan neck off and tip the contents into the sink, making sure the plug was in first...no earring .
minutes later wife finds it under the door, i should say my wife had had a good look for it before i set about dismantling the sink pipework .
so daughter is happy and trots off to school with mum and her new pair of earrings.
meanwhile im at home putting the sink back together ,i finally get the pedestal back after tussling with it to get the lino back etc, no easy job .
later today my eldest daughter says to me the sink is leaking .
i end up back under the sink tightening up the pipes and discover the plumbers mate seal round the plug on the underneath has come away and now leaks ,
i now have to purchase a large enough wrench and a tub of plumbers mate to repair the damage.
wife gets home and i tell her about my crap time with the sink and the new problem .
it was only the back of the earring that got dropped ,i have loads and it wasnt a problem if it had gone down the sink.
nice to know that ...
