Knights in shining armour
Here are our knights in shining armour, who arrived in a white van this morning.
We are leak less.... no more water rushing around under our kitchen floor. No more hissing of escaping water. They estimated water was escaping at 3 liters per minute.
Thanks guys, for spending a whole day here at the cottage, thanks a million for not digging up the cottage floor.
After a bit of deduction with the help of a very high tec deduction kit.
Gone are the days of using two divining rods.
Although they still use of a spade.
This is where the new pipe needed to come through to.
The hole they dug was luckily outside of the cottage and not inside.
If things hadn't gone so well, it would have meant a hole right where I'm now sitting.
Now you see it.
Now you don't.
Needless to say all of this was closely watched by Amie nosy beak, through the glass door.
Amie had a treat for being so good today. She might have had more than was good for her.
When your an old lady, so what.
However there is a limit.
After all the excitement, only one thing to do.
Share the birthday rug until the big clear up really starts in the kitchen.......
The flooring is ruined, it could have been a whole lot worse.
Just as well we didn't buy a couple of ducks and a shoal of goldfish to go with the kitchen ambiance after all.
