Oohh... I think I threw them away, Clough lol. To satisfy your curiosity, you may have been right earlier on... the screw fitted in to a metal thingy that also had to be broken off. Gosh, that's a terrible explanation, I know. Hope you get the picture.
On the tap front... someone kindly turned the water off at the main and put a new washer but the new taps I bought don't fit
Whyyyyyy is this happening?? I now have a collection of ill-fitting taps, since I had also bought a set for the bathroom that can't be used and a silly little set of taps that look pretty, but are useless
The taps I bought today for the kitchen sink sit on top of the gadgetry and work the tap; they can easily come off in your hand though as they aren't screwed down into anything. I would start a new thread, only I think I'll take them back along with the old tap and find the right ones!
Thanks for listening to my household woes lol.
I've painted the ceiling of the dining room and have been sanding and puttying. I might ask for ideas on decorating... and yes, I'll start a new thread for that. I've taken 'before' photos. My loungeroom is a cluttered mess at the moment... the Christmas tree is still up, amongst the entire contents of the dining room having been transferred to the living room temporarily.
Oh, and if you're still interested, I bought new door handles for the hallway rooms that look beautiful, but some aren't fitting properly. I've been told to try using detergent on the thread... (big sigh) lol.
