Our bathroom is not at all well. Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised given that it’s one of the last projects Wee Stoned Mark perpetrated on our premises. There seems, briefly, to have been a lot of silliness. The good Barry is now removing it, and at the current rate of progress, by the time he’s finished, it’s all going to cost a fortune. Money well spent — Barry inspires confidence, and what’s slowing things down is replacing rotten members in window-frames and that sort of thing. Someone moving in a slow, thoughtful and considering way from window to window is in itself, long overdue. Improperly sealed bathroom floors are not something which benefit from indefinite neglect. One way or another, affording Barry is self-evidently the path of sanity.
