I’m still on the fence as to whether I’m really enjoying the new Doctor Who.
So far, I’ve only seen the first two episodes, and maybe it’s just that I’m still missing David Tennant in the role, but I’m having some difficulty in really getting into the new direction that they seem to be taking the show.
One reviewer said that it was “somthing old being done in a new way”. And it definitely has a “retro” feel to it so far. In fact, I really feel that this is how they would have done the show in the 60’s had they had present-day technology to do it with.
I think that Matt Smith is doing a bang-up job in the roll of The Doctor, so it may just be my getting used to this new take on the story.
Although, truth be told, I’m having a hard time believing that Winston Churchill would have the TARDIS’ phone number!
We shall see…

Girls, if you can, always marry a handyman!
Husbandji was able to replace the shower handle so we can put away the pliers and use the shower like normal people again!
Plus that buys us some time in deciding on what to do about the shower itself. I’ll keep you posted as things develop!
Enjoy your Sunday!

This morning, after Husbandji took his shower, he told me that he noticed that there was a CRACK in the floor of the tub!
The tub is less than five years old. Ack.
We had previously noticed what we thought was just a scratch in the tub. It has been there for quite some time, and we assumed that it was nothing to worry about.
But, oh yeah, I checked it out and it is definitely a crack.
When I got in the shower, Husbandji went down to the basement to see if there was any water leaking through, and fortunately there wasn’t.
So we assumed that we had a little time to find a bathroom refitter/plumber to have the tub replaced.
Except that when I finished my shower and went to turn off the water, the handle made a “snapping” noise and the water didn’t turn off.
So I screamed called for Husbandji and he brought his pliers and was able to shut off the water from where the handle broke.
So now it is a little more urgent to have the tub and fixtures replaced.
Can I come over to your houses to shower while that’s going on?!!!! 😦
Remember Pat and Mick?!! Faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaabulous!!

I realize that most of you will not get this, but, trust me. It is hilarious!
