Bathroom woes

Our shower has been leaking for about two years now. I learned to ignore it a while ago but our landlords are back in the house for the fall and apparently it’s annoying them as they have decided to do a major re-plumb of our bathroom. This means that they have shut the water off so the plumber can do his job and stay dry. This also means that we now have no shower and we have to fill up a bucket in the kitchen to dump into the toilet so we can flush that. Whee.
