King of the toolkit...

With all the little (and maybe not-so-little?) practical tasks that I've done over the past couple of years, I've found myself using a particular tool over most of the others. Undoing nuts, collars, loosening jubilee clips and holding things tight so I can adjust the other side - they're like a combination of pliers (with the grippy jaws) and a spanner (with the adjustable nose), and I've never really been sure what they're called.

A scan of Google tells me they're called Water Pump Pliers .. or Plumbing Pliers .. or even Tongue & Groove Pliers.

Suffice it to say, the carpets are now down, and the house certainly feels warmer. The dishwasher's plumbed back in (which is what prompted this entry!) and the mac's back in its home. Unfortunately, there's still an outstanding issue - the studio carpet was supposed to come with underlay, but the fitter used it on the stairs (which doesn't, strictly speaking, need it) before we realised it. Thus, when he left, there was a roll of carpet waiting to go into the music room, but the all that remained of the underlay ended up at the tidy tip. I'm sure we'll be able to sort something out, but it's not great news. Othewise, though, we're heading back to normal home life!
