Cost of Living

The cottage plumbing came in the mail -- $227.96. OK, I guess. It took 2 guys 2 hours worth of labour. Like with a lot of automotive repairs, it's the labour that makes up the bulk of the bill.

D doesn't envy them as the crawlspace is more accurately described as a slither space. No way ever, will you catch me down there. The sight of the bugs living there alone would give me a heart attack!

Have a Great Weekend Everyone!


  1. Could have been much worse. Sometimes its best to leave it the professionals.
    New blog design is very cool by the way

  2. I hear you on the bugs...ick! I really like the look of the new blog design. Have a great weekend, hopefully it's not raining where you are.

  3. Eeyeew! Bugs! Rather them than me, that's all I can say. I agree with Lizzie - sometimes it's best to leave some things to the pros.

    I ALMOST chose the same template as you! I'm sure I'll be changing mine every week now that they have new ones. Nice choice!

  4. I like your template; I also changed mine (very similar to yours actually).
    It's true, labor cost is very expensive. Simply having an electrician or plumber come in for something small costs quite a bit!

  5. Thanks Lizzie, Sue, Northern Living Allowance & Sandra!
