It is done.
I have now tiled one bathroom floor.
I have this thing about not paying someone to do something I can do myself. This attitude has led to some interesting times. Building my own bedroom furniture springs to mind... however, there are also certain things I will gladly pay others to do for me.
Tiling has been added to that list :)
I'm now off to soak my aching body parts (wrists and knees and back, oh my!), and enjoy a VERY large G&T.
