Talking sensible nonsense; )
I'm no plumber and can't work put what's happening when i flush my bog so I'm asking for good old BM advice. In the last week or I've been flushing my toilet and the water level has been raising without properly flushing properly.

Several turds have been resurfacing from from previously disappearing. One particular sweetcorn encrusted turd has bobbed up twice now, it's as if waving at me and taking the piss. : /

What's going on?

I've paid my dues !
From your description mate, sounds like there may be a blockage and your flush valve’s fucked.
Pour some drain unblocker down, leave overnight, and get the valve changed, use one with a brass shank as the plastic ones are pretty poor.

When you lift it if not blocked pour buckets if hot water down toilet as it might be a blockage in soil pipe. Or even a hose pipe if you have one that’ll reach.

Plumber here.

Sounds like either a blockage or like someone has said your fill valve is nackered meaning it’s not filling up properly and only flushing half a cistern which isn’t enough to flush away your turds.

Flush your toilet and take off the cistern lid and see how long it takes to fill up if it takes more than 2 mins it’s buggered.

Try using some of the liquid used for washing clothes..plumber trick I was told about,not too much..or get a plunger..for sure a blockage..if it is outside..should your drain run into a neighbours drain, the council will unblock..if not you can buy some rods from B&Q if you are brave !!! Had all these joys living in an old house.
