Jump forward two generations and I'm sitting with dad talking about our new home and Judith and Rogers in-the-making. We're talking bathrooms now that the two guest bedrooms have their en-suites nearly finished. 'How did I ever cope with one bathroom?' he says. I take his point.
Tiling went well this time, until we encountered the mosaic tiles we'd chosen as a feature. They're a feature now! Its OK watching DVDs of tiling, quite another when you're up to your elbows in tile adhesive and creating the tiled equivalent of a ploughed field or a rolling sea.
But that angst is behind us and we have a plan so that guests won't notice the unusual effect - we're going to provide highly astringent shampoo in both en-suites and then put the lighting on a dimmer. Job done!
