"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Drilling holes - part deux


The hole finally got drilled and the outside tap duly fitted. What didn't do much for my blood pressure was the discovery that, by sheer good luck, Keith managed to drill neatly between two water pipes which, unknown to us, were running through the cavity in the wall. The drill missed both by millimetres!
Paddy wasn't worried though. He was busy sunbathing.
