I seem to have a real mental block as to starting the flushing of the street level toilet.
I did my own flushing many years in the undercroft kitchen and bathroom.
I swore I would never do it again - that is I would hire a flushing crew in future.
However, with the severe shortage of tradies at the moment I am being forced to do it myself.
Over the last week I have acquired all the materials and tools that I need.
I took everything out to site with the intention to start on that day.
However, it was 3 pm by the time I had everything in place - protective plastic on the floor, power cords for mixing powder, buckets of water, a mixing pail, all the different size trowels.
I deferred a start to the next day.
I have had two sessions so far. I am doing a reasonable job but I am very slow.
I am watching instructional videos - the tradesman lays an entire join with base coat in a single sweep.
I have to dab at it 20 times to lay in the same plaster.
I am guessing that it will take me another two or three visits to complete this job.
