Friend tiles splashback

Di, a woman with light skin tone wearing glasses, tiling a small area above a sink. Two rows of blue tiles and one on the third row are in place with some white grout all around ready to have more tiles applied.

My lovely friend, Di, is way more practical than I am. We recently had the leaking sink in our downstairs cloakroom replaced and needed to retile the splashback. I knew Di had done tiling in her house in the past, so I asked if she would do it for me.

Not only did she do the tiling – making a very fine job of it – she also let me have the leftover tiles from her own bathroom.

So not only is this a story of human kindness, it’s also kind to the planet because the leftover tiles would otherwise just have gone to waste.
