water water everywhere and not a drop to drink | February 11, 2009

I awoke this morning woke up the children left Isaac sleeping as he had had 2 small seizures in the night and went to start the usual routine get Isaacs cocktail of meds ready,drinks breakfasts whilst the children used the bathroom.
Carrie-ann shouted mom quick look at this.. my boiler had started leaking in the night water all over the hallway lino a lovely big puddle for want of a better word and water dripping out of the light fitment and a dripping ceiling which looks like it will collapse.
I have an airing cupboard full of wet towels and bedding which need have soaked up a lot of the water,Joanne has popped round after the school run and taken Isaac to hers as wet lino collapsing ceilings and toddlers are a bad combination whilst I await the emergency gas people to come see the boiler and then once it is fixed get the council out to look at reapairing the ceiling and then I will have to re-decorate as the dripping hot water as lifted off the wallpaper.

I have no idea what time the council will be out to mend the boiler so am in the living room as the constant drip drip drip is like chinese water torture and i’m running out of towels to soak up the water and have wet squishy slippers.

So how was everyone elses morning?



  1. Hi Jayne.

    Aha I’m so sorry sorry to hear about your water leak, something you could do with out I’m sure. Water is a good friend but a very bad enemy. Hope everything gets sorted out by the authorities.

    Hope the council get their finger out and get around as quickly as they can and sort out the problem for you.

    The council as the Landlord have a duty to put right any repairs and damage necessary for their in inefficiency for not maintaining the boiler is a safe and working condition, keep on having a go at them.

    Good luck Mick X
