This last saturday we had arranged to have our annual party in the wood and organised two wonderful
musicians to come and play so we could listen, dance or sing during the evening.Luckily we had put up the big tent the day befor when it was warm and sunny. But the next day we woke up to torrential
rain AND to hear an ominous hissing coming from under the kitchen sink and quantities of water
swimming around the kitchen floor.Tony investigated and saw a pipe coming into the house had cracked,We were lucky that the village mayor arrived bringing us tables and chairs and was able to get through to an emergency number where we had failed.The rain continued to fall heavily so we
decided to cram as many seats and tables into the tent as we could. Meanwhile the water board emergancy services arrived with the news they would have to cut off our water supply until after the weekend!!!!We were so glad the mayor was here,and the result that they linked a pipe along the road to our neighbours house where they had an exteriour tap. They were out so we couldn't ask permission it was just done. Luckily they were kind about it.
