Alex Fixes The Shower

Today we have another post from our young guest writer Alex de Leeuw. Since Alex is Dutch I have translated his story into English for him.

Alex Fixes The Shower 1
Vandaag hebben we in de douche geklust. Gisterenavond heb ik voor het laatst onder de oude douche gestaan.

Today we rebuilt the shower. Last night I took my last shower with the old shower.

Toen zijn we naar de klusmarkt gegaan.

Then we went to hardware store to buy new parts.

    I hope Alex kept you well away from all those power tools to avoid accidents! He looks adorable in his England shirt. And what a great collection of rubber ducks!

    Alison – Well I think Alex would be happy to do any future work. He seems to enjoy doing it.

    A touch of Dutch – Alex loves tea.

    Martin – It’s funny now you mention it. He did keep on turning down my help where power tools were involved.

    Lol Stu, can I borrow Alex. He could do a few jobs for me…and I’d give him a big box of Quality Street as a bonus to his normal pay sweet packet!

  9. Invader Stu says:

    I think he would have fun working on a boat and it would give him a massive sugar rush.
