Nearly There ...

Hopefully yesterday was our last day without water.

After lots of phone calls, instructions on how things should be done and a plan of how to actually  do it ... all orchestrated by my Lovely Hubby rather than 'the experts' ... things were finally achieved.  Rather than faffing about looking for a leak in a buried pipe he suggested the simplest way forward was to run a new pipe from the roadside stop tap to the house.  This was done by two men in just under a day, with the help of a local guy and his 'mole'.

Last night we had running water for the first time in a week and a half .... and long luxurious baths were enjoyed by all 😊

Today they are expected back to finish off the job, as you can see from this photo the grass has been reinstated, now we just need pipe work to the house sorted out, the old inlets capped off and finally the large hole by the front door filled and new tarmac patched in with the old.

There is light at the end of a long, dry tunnel ... oh and typically today it is raining properly for the first time in a couple of weeks, so there's water inside AND out.

Done and dusted, well everything left nice and neat by the two man team that was Ian and Keith from Ansa.  At last we are back to normal.  😊

  1. I was only just thinking about you and your water/lack of water situation! So pleased that it is almost sorted for you, how fortunate that you have an expert of your own, not that it should have to be that way, such a shame that the 'professionals' can't manage to get it done as efficiently. Enjoy the water!

  2. enjoy the water!
    just caught up, love the blueberries & the dressed sheep, very chic!
    thanx for sharing

  3. Water troubles can be so frustrating can't they?

  4. It's often said, but no less true - we don't miss our everyday conveniences until we don't have them. And water is surely the most basic. Yay for smart husbands :)

  5. I love baths, I read books to death in the bath!

  6. I know how you feel, years ago we had to go without water for a few days and it was awful... you truly don't realise how lucky we are to have running water until you're without it! Glad you're back to normal :)

  7. Sounds like you had everything well under control and the plan worked like clock work - glad you are back in the land of running water in the right places!

  8. You have a very smart Lovely Hubby. Glad all is back to normal for you.
