phase one...

Inspector has just been out to assess the floor damage. I am getting brand spanking new floors, trims, door bars and fitting :) We had a nightmare fitting it when I originally put it down- I thought I could do it myself but I was so wrong and ended up having it fitted! So at least I don't have to worry about that again. The inspector was lovely- didn't even bother looking at the old flooring, he was quite happy that I wasn't trying to pull a fast one- we never claim on the insurance, and the damage to the rest of the room was obvious. He has checked the quarry tiles in the utility room for me, and they are fine, no water underneath thank god- that would be a big job! So off to sort stinky flooring out to go to the tip- hurrah!

Water is back on and sorted, the culprit was some pillock doing work on the main road in a digger, and he dug through the water main- nice work dipstick! lol! I'm clean! YAY!

So all in all we appear to have, in Shell's words, 'the right amount of water' now!

Gonna add a random pic- cos I can't find where the camera leads are packed away (am back on my own pc now thank god) ohh I know I'll find my pics of cotswold farm park- goats fighting- so proud of those- right place right time and all! It was play fighting though!





Lots of special hugs n love for Beth today. I am thinking of you darling, I know today will be really tough for you -x-

Glad to hear things are getting sorted, especially that other people will be doing the work and you will just have the nice job of choosing the new goodies :)
