Just Water!

Amongst the things that have gone right this year there of course have been some sad times plus 'things' that go wrong.

The other evening I went to the kitchen sink to peel the potatoes for dinner, the water from the tap wasn't flowing as good as it normally does, then it was discovered youngest son was running the water in the bath for his 2 year old son.  He turned those taps off, but still not enough water out of the kitchen tap.  Husband went and checked all the taps outside in the backyard, all was well.  I kept saying, no, not all is well.  Daughter in law went to her car out the front of the house, there is was discovered that her car had broken a pipe to the watering system in the lawn.  So hence the problem.  Water was turned off, husband and son fixed the pipe.  Water was collected from next door neighbours so dinner could be cooked for the 7 of us. 

Another tap outside decided to leak this morning once again.  A new tap is required.
Then before we went on holiday, husband broke another pipe by driving his 4 wheel drive over it.  That too is now repaired.  I hope that is the end of the Water problem.

  1. Water pipe problems can become a major issue. We've spent lots of $$$ fixing our sprinkler system, and I keep saying we should go back to the oscillating sprinklers on the end of a hose. Our biggest challenges came from a basement in Illionois, where the water downspouts had not been running the water away from the house, and the basement walls were buckling. Lots of expense on that one! Glad you have them all fixed.

    1. Sounds like you sure have had your fill of water problems then. It can be expensive as plumbers do charge heaps.

  4. Oh doesn't it suck when turn on the tap and the water doesn't flow like it usually does, it is just one of the many things we take for granted as it was only a hundred years ago that running water wasn't that common

    1. It's not good being without water as you say. Since it's been repaired we have a good flow.
