Well the bad news is that my Hero Next Door did indeed have to smash his way in through the tiles to fix the leak. A washer on the water inlet into the toilet had perished and was causing the problem. He cut from underneath in the craft room first but concluded that he couldn't reach the problem and the only course of action was to smash.
What a difference a day makes! He fixed the leak, cut new tiles ~ luckily we had some spares ~ and he's added an (easily) removable piece of wood to the top "in case it happens again." I just need to grout around the replacements now.
Downstairs in the craft room he's patched the ceiling with new plasterboard and will skim over with plaster later on. For now things are drying out above.
The other good news is that Master Clicky passed his driving test yesterday. Apparently the examiner was extremely pleasant and they chatted away during the test! When he got in from work we sorted out the insurance on 'his' (Mr Clicky's old) car. He was however, a little reluctant to drive to work this morning, because we had snowfall during the night. He left a bit later, I told him to take it steady and he went off ok. Let's hope he gets home in one piece!
The snow has mostly gone now, and it's getting chilly. I have lots of dust to sort out in the bathroom.
Bye for now...........Clicky Needles.
