Today I booked the kiddies into school clubs so they could play and eat in a clean environment, whilst Anglian Water fixed our drainage issues. They discovered the issues: blockage was due to a collection of wipes. Apparently it’s the same as putting a tee shirt down the toilet as they simply do not disintergrate. It’s not our fault, although I cannot hand on heart say the kiddies haven’t contributed, it’s a collection from the street. Ew! We’ve now got to wait for the insurance companies to sort out the next stages: cleaning and replacements etc. Fingers crossed it all comes together soon and we can get back to normal. I feel yucky. I’m really grateful to my babies, they’ve been really good about it all and it’s helped a lot. They sat and watched trolls tonight. It’s their favourite thing. They sit and watch it without moving.
Today has literally been CRAP! I had a phone call at lunchtime telling me to get home as the house was flooding! WHAT??! I got home to a completely ruined conservatory full of furniture, toys and 95% of our towels ruined. It took Anglian Water 6 hours to get to us, hubby had to sweep the water out of the back door constantly else the kitchen would have flooded too. Apparently there was a blockage in the main sewage pipes 50 metres to the right of our house, we are the end of the line and therefore cop it if there is a blockage. He managed to clear it which was great, but unfortunately the blockage has blocked our internal plumbing which means we have to wait until tomorrow before it can be sorted! Our house stinks. Sewage all over our belongings and furniture – its disgusting! Why can’t people just throw things away instead of put everything down the toilet? It doesn’t disappear into thin air! *rant over*
Isla and Noah had great fun at the bowling party for their friend today – Isla won her game. She had no idea what it all meant but she was happy with her score: 107! Better than Mummy. It was a great idea for some fun on a Sunday.
Welcome to 2017’s collection of #SilentSunday photos, today is 19 February 2017. Today’s photo is from our trip to BeWILDerwood yesterday. We had so much fun, I cannot recommend it enough for families! I love all of the photos that are linked up and I would love to see this grow each week with new people linking up. I also love your comments, so a big thank you to everyone who joined in. Don’t forget to grab the badge and join in below…
Today we drove to BeWILDerwood and we had the most fun we have had in a long time. It was amazing. Imagine a great big forest with things to do in every direction. Noah’s favourite part was the scary slide, which was a vertical drop and Isla’s favourite part was the face painting. They had such happy faces throughout the day, it was lovely.
Today was a busy day: the children had a day with Nanny and I went to work (my long day) then straight to my friends house for a crochet date. Which basically entails wine, chocolate, girly chats and crochet. I managed to crochet four rows on the blanket project, which is 600 stitches – I didn’t think that was bad for multi tasking.
Today the children had their last day at holiday camp, which they have hated, and I picked them up a little earlier to go to Great Grandmas. I also had to take Snoopy to the vets for another operation, that’s the third lot of general anaesthetic in six months the poor thing! I also did some gardening and tidying. A busy and productive day!
Happy Valentines Day everyone! I was very lucky to receive a beautiful bouquet of flowers, some lovely and thoughtful gifts and an amazing meal. I have my very own little Jamie Oliver – what more could a girl want?
It was a long day: a big day at work (due to my new hours) then I had a Counselling session in the evening. I got home and snuggled with the cat – stroking a cat is good stress relief. Did you know that? When you’ve had a bad day, sit and stroke the cat. Everyones a winner.
