You know how they are always doing those lists of the Top 10 Inventions Ever or of the 20th Century etc etc? The flushing toilet always gets a look in near the top. I now understand why. My toilet has been leaking for months. It still worked but it meant I had to turn the water off at the tap to stop the bathroom flooding. Well today Dad put in a new cistern and I now have a fully functional and much more environmentally friendly toilet. It really is a case of not knowing how much you rely on something until it's gone.
