When it comes to going to the loo to do a 'number two' (or a download as we call it....), I'm afraid I don't belong in the 'twice a day' club. I go when I'm ready, which can be once a week; once a fortnight or even once a month.
I went to the loo yesterday morning, and having not been for a while, I knew my download would be on the large side. That was an understatement !!!!!!!!
Normally when they're on the 'large side' a couple of flushes of the loo gets rid of it. Sadly that didn't work.
We had a similar problem of a blocked loo a couple of years ago (caused by me again...) so I wrapped some plastic bags over the loo brush and gave it a vigorous plunge down the pan.
It wasn't budging. I tried again – and again – and again. Nothing.
Reluctantly I put my rubber gloved hand down the pan to see if I could move the obstruction. It was like poking a piece of wood. There was no way that was going to be flushed down the loo. So it had to come out.....
I took a couple of deep breaths when plunged my gloved hand back into the pan. No wonder I'd been constipated. It was over eight inches of solid poo....
Now I know what a dog walker goes through.
