THE FLOOD...


ABOVE: Before the cleaning up man arrived.... not a pretty sight. The water went into the spare bedroom and Brylee's room, plus both linen cupboards...

ABOVE AND BELOW: blowers and dehumidifiers all over the house!



They will be left on for at least 36 hours... great. We are living in a very NOISY sauna now.

No plans for today. Can't go out ... must keep an eye on things .... *sigh...

Back later... Stew thinks he's found the problem with the washing machine... a loose drainage pipe in the back of the machine. We are doing a load in the machine now to see if we have fixed it.
As my computer is still in the linen cupboard, I will not be able to visit blogs for a couple of days... as it's incredibly HOT in here! Like a suana!

Going to buy a new router tomorrow, so I can get back on my main computer in the Family Room!

End of Day: we went out for lunch, had kebabs in the park down at Mission Bay. Teddy thought it was lovely getting out and about in the car. nite nite.

  3. Oh Chris,

    So glad you got onto it quickly with the dryers and blowers etc. Looks as thought it is a big job.

  4. Um, we had that happen to us once, but it was the hot water heater that blew out. I guess if you want to look on the bright side (if there is one!) - at least it was just the washing machine and not the sewer! Ugh!

    Happy Easter to you and the family!

    XOXO,

  5. Sorry to hear about your flood. I can so identify with the dehumidifiers and fan heaters and the noise they made. We had some on loan for over 3 weeks when we had a flood just over a year ago.

  8. Bad luck Chris! I hate it when that happens, usually at the worst possible time. Hope things are sorting out. We have had internet problems this week too - frustrating. Hope the new router sorts it. Happy Easter!

  14. Hope tomorrow is a better day.

    I hate floods. I used to flood the house every wash day, well once a month .. you know .... the part of the month when your brain goes AWOL. TWJ drilled holes in the floor. Didn't have humidifiers in those days. Now I really do sound as though I came out with the Ark.
