In door water features anyone??????

Never again to I want a day like today, in fact lets forget about the year so far!!! Lets begin at the beginning, - January,microwave blew up, February, washing machine blew up, March - dishwasher blew up, April - whilst placing a plant support in the garden on Easter Saturday Mark inadvertantly managed to puncture the gas pipe to the house - major catastrophe, May - now bear in mind we are only 3 days into May, we awoke at our usual time 5:30am to go to work, carpet in bedroom sodden and I mean really wet just what you want when you blearly open ones eys. Water leak from the airing cupboard, now from the photo it doesn't look that bad, but photos LIE, Tash bless her, is trying to help as you can see, and by then the water was turned off, so I had an impromtu day off work today with Mark and his uncle repairing the pipe which meant carpet lifted and floorboards, my nice cream carpet now is a funny greyish colour and I'm still drying it out with a heater, the photo doesn't show that so well either. So now I have a tidy and dry airing cupboard as everything had to come out of it and its not that huge anyway, so its been all go all day.

BUT in the post today I got my lovely french kits for some smalls I wanted to do, luckily they are translated into English as my french is not so good, all three are by Au Fil des Reves and are all themed on Maison de brodeuse, I love them and I am not going to wait to start them, I'm starting tonight.

Also the final part of the attic stash big 40 arrived there were 10 beautiful Vicki Clayton silk threads so I can add them to my silk box, so between washing towels and bedding that got very wet with very yukky water, I've been fondling my new stash. Luckily I have a wonderful Mother in law who because we had no water sor half the day, took away some of the horrible wet yukky bedding and towels, and not only did she wash and dry it she also ironed the lot for me and brought it back at tea-time - Thanks Mu, I love my MIL.!

Oh dear- Disasters abound. You have had a tough year. I hope everything gets well dry and your carpet goes cream again. Not what one wants to wake up to!

I thought things happened in 3...well you've had over 3, so who lent you theirs?
I'm glad you are getting things cleaned up and all and that at least you can smile about your new stash enhancement.

I feel and can understand your pain. The summer we replaced our roof was very hot, no rain for days and days. The fellas quit early and put a tarp over the roof. Sun. nite it began to rain. It rained and rained in my sewingroom. The entire ceiling had to be replaced. New wallpaper was put on the walls and new carpeting. Luckily only a very small amount of papers were damaged.

{{{Sue}}} You've had a really tough time with your appliences recently. Hope you manage to dry everything out OK.

Oh my goodness, Su! What a terrible time you've had. Now with all these new appliances and repairs, surely you are set for a good long time!
Having had some water problems of my own lately, I really do know that awful feeling of having to clean up that wet, icky mess.
At least the postman was good to you. :D
