When my shower floor caved in, I thought that I’d never be able to shower again. Seeing as my bathroom also had a bath, I couldn’t justify paying to get a new shower when I knew that I’d be able to bathe for free. When you’re living pay check to pay check, spending money on a new bathroom shower design and getting it repaired just isn’t in the budget.
Surprisingly, the other day a distant relative of mine passed away and left me a significant amount of money in her will. I’m really not sure why, seeing as I may have spoken to this woman about five times in my life, but I’m really not complaining. Beggars can’t be choosers at this point.
I feel a bit bad about this because I really don’t care that my distant relative has died. I feel like I don’t deserve the money she has left me (because I don’t) but I’m going to use it anyway. I also feel bad about that. I should probably give this money to someone in her immediate family, or even one of her friends, or a charity, but I’m selfish and I want to keep it. I only want to keep it because I know how tough it is to live pay check to pay check, and I’m scared of the critters and creepy crawlies that can come out of the hole in my ground at night. Because of my great-aunt-twice-removed, I am going to call a company offering bathroom laundry renovations in Melbourne first thing in the morning. I am so excited.
The renovations company will be coming to my house next week to fix the gaping hole in my shower floor. They were perplexed that my house was so poorly built that something like this would happen, but they assured me that they’d be able to fix it. They even said they had some bathroom tiles ideas which could replace the old ones.
