Do you think I can find a hard boiled egg for sale anywhere in this city? No I can’t! I think we need a revolution. It might even be glorious. #wearthelilac

Toilet successfully repaired without breaking anything else.
New tap assembly is $4. Easier than stuffing about with washers that are apparently a smaller non-standard size. I shall just replace the tap.
Also could do with a new washer, and it needs a smaller diameter than the spares I have.
Having made this sort of error before, I believe I have gained some small wisdom.
I have decided, out of an abundance of caution, not to attempt a fix of the tap tonight. The change has been scheduled for regular working hours tomorrow to provide for the maximum number of get-out options for if I screw it up.
Now we find out if I correctly identified the size I need.
Success! Also: no charge!
Will the local plumbers still be open at 4:30pm when their website says open to 5pm? Stay tuned as our intrepid adventurer finds out!
Tap on the toilet inlet valve seems to have sprung a leak in the fibre washer join. New fibre washer required, I suspect, and of course it's not the size of any of the fibre washers I actually have.
It was surprisingly relaxing. I would never have done it of my own volition but now I'm a fan and would do the cold plunge thing at spa/springs places in future.
