    I am an not so handy pregnant mother of 2 with a problem. Being heavily pregnant, I have gained some weight and last weekend when going to the toilet I broke the cheap toilet seat that has been there since we moved in.
    I called the agency that deals with my repairs and they said it would cost 120 pounds to replace. I have already bought the new seat.

    Normally I would do it myself but the sink next to it has a drawer underneath and at the other side you have the wall. This leave me with no space to manoeuvre and get behind the toilet itself to unscrew the previous seat. I actually think the sink drawer was placed after the toilet seat and it is one of the normal toilet seats on it, since I cannot see the cap on top with possibility to unscrew it from the top.

    Does anyone know how to proceed from here?
