That describes the last two weeks for me pretty much!
The story:
Two years ago we went to a local home and garden show and spotted this somehow we ended up buying one with the whirlpool/jaccuzi function for our tiny bathroom. Measured up, yup the smaller size would fit, got a good deal on it, weren't ready to have it put in but that was fine, as long as we took delivery within a year. So, last September we finally had it delivered.
It has since been stored here- half of it in the conservatory and half of it in the garage (it is HUGE).
The plumbers were finally ready to fit it the week before last.

So off we go, new toilet and sink, no probs.
They fit the base of the bath, but can't get the side panels up the stairs.

So on Tuesday morning (bearing in mind we are running off a temp water supply at this point for over a week) we have to pay a glazier to take my bedroom window out and put the panel through. Result!
The plumbers come out to fit it, and are expecting the other workmen to have attached it to the bath base ready to plumb in.


We go to bring the other panel up (are you still with me?) and


So, Wednesday morning I have to have the window out AGAIN! Argh!

More probs along the way but finally the spaceship is in! We had 6 blokes in our tiny bathroom Friday night trying to get it together- thats two plumbers, two electricians and two oddjob men.

And it is F A B!

I think I may live in there forever!
I actually think there is a button on the control panel to transport you to another dimension!

Totally PMSL at the last warning on this label (sorry its a tad blurry)

But we have a leak on the hardboard floor base! PMSL! Why can't anything be straight forward!?

Had a little bit of much needed playtime this morning, so decided to play along with the digi dares.

Here is mine- Simba is so funny with this and the tone of voice he uses- he quite often says- 'hello bubby' or 'are you alright bubby' lol. love that lil guy :D (click for larger image)

A True Friend went live with the latest challenge on Tuesday- I won't add the pics again here as there are so many. We have some great plans in store for the blog, Laurie and I have been in cahoots for a while now ;)
