I recently came into a bit of money which is a massive relief because I have been struggling to make ends meet. I own my home, which obviously puts me in a very good position in terms of assets. But cash-wise, I have struggled for many years. Of course, I don’t want to sell my home, so I’ve lived as frugally as possible for the past couple of years so that I could get by.
Now that I’ve come into money, however, I am able to put a bit away in my savings and use the rest to improve my living situation and lifestyle. My first task: repair the bathroom. There are many areas in my bathroom that need repairs, but I’ve chosen to start with the blocked drains. Essendon is quite an old suburb in Melbourne and so it makes sense that our drains are getting a bit worse for wear. I’ll need to have them repaired and unblocked so that I can stop living with the horrific smell in my bathroom that I’ve put up with for the past couple of years.
Once my drains are unblocked, I think I’m going to ask the drain plumber if they provide a sewer repair service. Melbourne sewers just aren’t up to scratch, and now that I have the means, I want to make sure that I don’t have any sewerage come back up through any drains and soak through all my tiles. Honestly, I’m not even really sure if that’s possible, but the thought of it makes me feel very yucky inside and I definitely don’t want that to happen.
It’s crazy how much of a difference money makes. They say money can’t buy happiness, but those that say that don’t know what it’s like living in a rundown house that could potentially be a biohazard. My quality of life is about to improve significantly, and it all starts with fixing the drains and sewers attached to my bathroom. Exciting stuff.
