A wet weekend

My blogging activity has been fairly quiet of late and I suspect it is likely to continue that way for some time now after a torrent of water passed through my house on Friday afternoon. Pictures below

Inside the house as the washing machine and freezer start to drown

The garden floats away

View from the front door

The adjacent railway line - hence all the problems between Reading and Newbury on Friday. Still only two rooms still have water above the floorboards (all the rooms still have plenty of water below the floorboards). The power is mostly ok and I have finally got an intenet connection. The insurers have been contacted and seem very efficient but I suspect the building work will take a very long time.

The good thing is that we didnt lose anything of value, sentimental or monetary, we still have electricity and the internet (yay) and we have achieved the minimalist look we were after due to everything on the ground floor floating away. AND you caught a fish in the front garden which is cool

OMG - at least our water was clean ..... and a couple of inches and went quick!

How long to sort it all out ?

Could be months - builder reckons the whole of the ground floor will have to be gutted, possibly all the plaster as well
