The aftermath of our fourth flood in the last four years.

20130828-113408.jpg

Just when you think you could never have another flood in your home, well think again.

Two days ago we had a burst pipe in the bathroom and the front room ceiling came down with a bang. Luckily the kids had just gone outside or they would have been underneath it all. So no injuries thank goodness, but our beautiful room is in ruins and the rest of the house looks like it has been turned upside down.

We had only just had new oak floors throughout the ground floor in the last eight months or so and hadn’t yet decorated the dining room. Our super team of friends were called in to help rescue us and make a space we could live in. So 24 hours on we have an almost finished dining room and can close the door on the front room now until it is fixed up.

This has been an emotional and stressful bank holiday weekend for us. But having family and friends here to help us has made all the difference. We had three generations all pulling together and keeping our spirits up, turning our tears into laughter.

I’ll post a few before and after shots of the dining room shortly.
