    Jeez, up to an inch in the lounge, dining room and kitchen. First noticed it about 4 hours ago. Patsy has been outside filling buckets of water and repositioning the stuff in the garden...... Nah, chasing yer tail girl.  Flooded! 3025408739 Dogs have had to move to slightly higher ground lol. Its not just me. We have a village community page on facebook and loads of posts on there about it. Peeps pumping out the water but wheres it gonna go? Flat as a pancake here it is. Apparently its running off the surrounding fields. Seem to remembering it happening about 15 years ago. Lost a carpet I think. Needles to say I have no insurance but hey, 15 years of premiums is more than a frigin carpet Sir! Got some expensive parquet effect laminate flooring in the dining room, didnt cost much an ebay steal but would be sad to see it fecked up. Carpet in the lounge...... Guess it will dry out, and the kitchen floor is ceramic tiled so that will probs be OK. Where I am now is in my office, used to be the bar area when it was a pub and it has a false floor about 3" higher. Always wondered why really but I guess I just found out. Also laminate covering now but no sign of flooding yet. My tootsies are dry! Got a 10 foot dinghy/tender in the back yard. Might come in handy, not to mention the 8m boat on the trailer. Thats gonna need more than 2 foot of water to float though. Jack has just got up, off to work collecting the bins. This week he is collecting much beer, bickies and sweets and the odd bit of cash on his round so he is keen as mustard lol.

    I thought you were joking at first. What a awful thing to happen. Try and stay dry and hope not too much more damage is done.



    Live life to the full now or it could be too late

    Well the carpet is still wet but water has gone and at the moment the laminate in the dining room looks okay. It looks like parquet wood and its in strips about a foot wide. When laying it I left a big strip all round the edge which is what you are supposed to do so fingers crossed. Wonder if I can grow mustard and crees on the carpet???????? Nice in an egg sandwich.  Flooded! 3025408739
