All our graphic artists have been so creative for Halloween I thought I would start early using them.
Good Afternoon, as the song says 'Woke up this morning feeling fine', that did not last long at all. Had a lovely hot shower made my porridge did my hair came upstairs got dressed and then walked from our bedroom into the room where our wardrobe is to find the shoes I wanted to wear today without anything on my feet and felt a wet patch in the hall carpet did not think anything of it for a second or to till I walked back to our room and bent down to feel how wet it was, it was soaking wet. I lifted the carpet back and even the floorboards were wet. I called on Stuart to have a look see and we spotted the radiator was leaking not from the pipe at the bottom but from a blister at the top. I ran and got a dish to catch the drips, we did not really have time for all this as we had appointments for our flu jabs at 9-30. We had been up early as we hate to rush about in the morning its a good job too with all this happening. I then had the bright idea to bleed the radiator at the top thinking that would take away some of the water. I had already turned the darned thing off so I thought in my infinite wisdom would do the trick for now. Well as we were bleeding it started to spray out from the blister as well as dripping, great what were we going to do and still get for our flu jabs? After a few minutes the spraying seemed to ease off a bit we had towels over the offending blister so the water would not spray all over the hallway. Once it settled down I brought another larger dish from the kitchen and put it under the now steady drip. The spraying had almost stopped. We thought it would be safe to quickly go and get our flu jabs. For once we were taken on time one for Stu and two jabs for me as I had not had the pneumonia one before. That done back we came in time to empty the dish. Every time we need a plumber it is always out of hours for some reason or another so here we are again Saturday rates again the last time it was the same only it was the night before we were going on holiday its a good job we have a goodplumber. So as you can see we have had an eventful day what we thought would just be a quick visit to the doctors then out for coffee turned out into a nightmare. We have now lifted the carpet cleaned up all the backing that came off it and the floor is drying up thankfully. I have been wanting a new carpet for some time so this is my chance once we get this all sorted out. So here we are waiting patiently for the plumber and emptying the large dish every hour and I just wanted a quiet day. Love
