Oh well. No one it seems stocks toilet pans with separate cisterns anymore. B&Q quoted a 4 week delivery. Luckily the plumbers merchants in Stretford can do something by Thursday if I let them know on Tuesday. I'm half tempted to find a plumber to fit it though as I'm not sure I have a clear weekend until December but I can work from home one day and get the boiler serviced and the toilet fitted in one go. It's amazing how much a piece of porcelain can cost though. We are talking just shy of ?300 for a bowl and cistern. Still nothing I can do about it now. I'm heading into town to join Mark and Al and drink beer by way of commiseration.
