When something breaks, you can learn to work around it. But there comes a time when you just need to replace the frigging tap.
As soon as Hubby and I bought our house the kitchen tap started to drip. At first we could stop the tap dripping by turning it off hard. Although I disapprove of violence against taps, a firm hand is sometimes justified.
When it was the cold tap alone, I felt like we were winning.
Then the hot tap teamed up with the cold tap to fight us.
The screws that held both taps in place started to loosen. I swear kitchen pixies came out at night to unscrew them.
The tap began to drip constantly.
