The Tale of Thunder Tuesday and a Winter Wonderland Challenge .............

Hi everyone, what a week I had last week, on Tuesday we had a really bad thunder storm and when I got up there was no water in our en suite bathroom which is on our top floor as we have a 3 storey house.  I thought I had turned the tap off so off I went to work.  I had an awful day, my car played up all the 50 miles I had to drive to work it was just one of those days!  But it only got worse when I got home at 5.45pm I could hear the fire alarm going off  so I opened the door not quite sure what I was going to find, thank fully there wasn't a fire but the fire alarms were going off as there was water pouring through.  It turned out that the water had come back on about an hour after I left the house and I had left the sink tap on which then flooded the whole house as the water came out so quick it just shot over the side of the sink.  What a mess we were in, we have water damage to every room in the house.  We are going to need some new floor boards, ceilings, skirting boards, and door frames as well as complete decoration and new carpets through out. Once the floors are dried out I think we are going to have to move out for 2 - 3 weeks.  Thankfully my Mum and Dad live in the same village as us so they have said we can stay with them.  So at some point my craft room will have to packed up and put in storage.

So with all this going on my blog has been a bit quiet!  I did manage to make my Winter Wonderland  DT card and our theme for you this week is 'Red, White and Craft', so I hope you will come and join in the challenge.Thanks for stopping by.

Oh poor you, I symphathise a lot! Some years ago our water tank in the loft burst and we had exactly the same problems as you. It's horrible, and so frustrating! It all came out fine in the end, though, hopefully you will be back to normal soon.

Wishing you loads of luck for the next few weeks, I'll be thinking of you!

much love, Mags B xxx
