    Default Tilers, doing their own bathrooms\kitchens

    Ohh, what a drag...

    Im sat here, I've got 4 days off, well this is my 3rd so far, no tiling jobs on for this week and back on my shift job wednesday.
    My own bathroom and kitchen has little bits of work left to do in them, but between my shift job, then my tiling, I often end up being busy 7 days a week, week on end.

    But now I've actually got a few days off, I can't be assed doing my own bits of tiling that need still need doing, lol

    My poor suffering wife, she must think "brilliant, we'll always have a nice tiled bathroom and kitchen for life", ohh how wrong could she have been

    Yeah 98% is nicely tiled, it's just getting round to the last 2% lol

    Thing is, if the phone rang and someone wanted a splashback or whatever starting straight away, it would be "grab tools and fly out the door".

    Do many of you ever feel like this, or is it just me being a friggin lazy ass,

    last halloween my misses pulled the wallpaper of the bathroom walls and painted big spiders all over the walls above the existing tiling because we were going to have a party for the kids and they could do apple bobbing in the bath and we were planning to do the bathroom anyway. Needless to say 11 months on we still have spiders on the wall because i cant be as***ed to rip it out and redo it, the splashback in the cloakroom is untiled and the ensuite floor is bare chipboard, the only thing I have finished is the limestone floor in the kitchen/diningroom, even in my last house i didnt finish the bathroom untill 2 days before i moved out

    I not long did my wetroom / shower-room / bathroom affair after about 5/6 years of living in the house. I think every tiler is a bit like this.
