Leaking pipes.

I woke up early this morning, hubby couldn’t sleep so he got up and ran a bath and having got in had made enough noise to wake the dead. I got up and passing the bathroom on my way downstairs he said “put the kettle on, I’ll be down in 10 minutes or so”

Well, he came down a darn sight quicker than that!

I had brought the washing downstairs with me and going to the machine I  became aware of a hissing noise. Then I noticed the floor was wet (tiled thankfully).  I shouted upstairs to hubby to ask if a wet floor and hissing noise from the washing macihine constituted something worth getting out of the bath earlier for……

The sight of my hubby, on his knees before me at 7.10am is not an inspiring one, even if he is not clothed fully, and he is swearing like a trooper.

Suffice to say that a good 45 minutes later the problem had been found and rectified (a split water inlet pipe) and the water turned back on, leaving me with a floor to dry off and a whole load of extra towels to wash! while hubby disappeared upstairs to finish his bath!

  1. I’m very impressed that you & Mr Nige can fix leaking pipes at the crack of dawn. What a horrid experience. I’m so glad you’re settled in the new house safely, think you’ll like Grantham and have found some friendly neighbours and fellow shoppers. Thinking of you!
