The Easter long weekend is for family, relaxing and reflection.
Then the hot water tank bursts just a week after the car’s gear box starts playing up and that idyllic weekend in the country with warm socks, happy children in white linen dresses, wine, food and laughter turns into soaking up 2 inches of water from the flooded living room.
Thankfully we’re OK, no one was burned or injured and we don’t seem to have lost much property. I think. Haven’t fully inspected the damage yet.
Right now I have to remember that I’ve done all I can do. Everyone has been called, the water was mopped up and the windows opened to help dry out the floor. It’s time to take a breath, take it one step at a time and maybe take Lottie to the playground.
