My family in Gloucestershire are still sans water, though the actual flood water has receded nicely. I had a steady stream of visitors at the weekend who all wanted to use my shower and wash their clothes. They all marvelled at the miracle of running water and toilets that flushed. We all joked about it but it really bought home how much we relied on clean running water. The water company hopes to have the water back on mid week and then it will be a couple of days before it is safe to drink. The other potential problem is with the sewage system as there is a risk of it backing up. Eugh!
As my mother has infected cellulitis it is paramount that her legs are kept clean and this is not easy without clean water. She is seeing a specialist soon so we are hoping that she will be able to help her as the antibiotics do not seem to be working. Otherwise my family are all safe and smiling in the face of adversity. Thanks again for all your well wishes :)
Meanwhile I wanted to show you this advert I found for a 4x4 off-road (SUV). When I first saw this I thought it was very amusing, and clever too. There are bits of it that are reminiscent of Monty Python's Holy Grail. Or is that just me? Anyhoo, I hope you like it!
