Would that have been in the bathroom or upon leaving the pub?I made a point of putting non-slip tiles in both bathrooms. However, the adjoining bedrooms have "slippy" tiles so the transition from the bathroom needs care. I've gone arse over tit a couple of times (but that was moons ago).
Don't you turn off the water when you are working on the water?
Plus 1. I concur the plastic taps are crap and tend to leak, if not immediately then after a couple of years or so. I have found them to be ok until you use them. Once you turn them off and turn them back on again, that's when the problems start.The taps. The blue and red plastic taps are crap and frequently leak. The blue stainless steel taps are much better (albeit three times the price).
And - both taps are turned "off" in the picture.
For information, it is simple to cut out the plastic taps and replace with the stainless steel taps.

Looking good @Coffee.
I made a very conscious decision a few years ago that I would not be lured into buying a two-floor house ever again. Now in my 73rd year, I am very pleased I didn't. While my upper body remains flexible and relatively good, my lower body, e.g. my knees, legs, ankles, and feet, are not. Climbing stairs is not a problem although the reverse, coming down again later, definitely is. The same with saloon cars, getting into cars is not a problem but getting out again later is. Hence my choice to drive a Hi-Rider pickup, easy to climb onboard and even easier to get out later. In all fairness, if you are not affected by arthritis, climbing and descending stairs and getting out of saloon cars should not pose too much of a problem. Unfortunately, for the past 37 years, I have lived with acute reactive arthritis, previously known as Reiter's Syndrome.
It's good to see @Coffee has anticipated future mobility problems. He has designed and built his personal ground-floor living 'quarters' for the new house.
