Re: Bathroom showrooms

Thank you for your responses. Sorry it took me this long to respond. I'm coming out on Monday so will try these places. Have now narrowed it down to the style of Roca bathroom, but I really need to see the product for real. :)

Help can't understand about PM's

I have previously sent PM's but each time I type them now and appear to submit them then check the sent box they are not there. Instead in my outbox it now says I have 5 messages. What am I doing wrong? Please help! :cry:
