Started to cook Christmas Dinner husband decided to visit eldest sons house a few klm away in another Suburb to see if the water had turned on outside to water some baby plants.
Eldest son, his wife and their little ones are on the East Coast of Tasmania on a holiday for several weeks and will come home for a day or two here and there to check things out.
I received a phone call from Husband whilst at sons - the house it flooded! A fitting underneath the bathroom sink had given way due to rust and being old, so husband was walking in water up to his ankles in parts, downstairs was also flooded with water up to just below his knees. The water was turned off, he came home we had Christmas dinner, son and his wife came home about 2pm after being phoned earlier, thus we 4four did the best we could wading in water pulling ruined furniture and clothes, books, toys etc. all off the flood into an area outside.
Son and wife returned to the East Coast to continue their holiday but will come home again this week to take rubbish to the tip with our help.
About 4pm on Christmas Day, husband and I returned home to shower and prepared several salads and meat to take to the youngest sons house so we could all have Christmas Tea together - the evening turned out well.
This morning my husband removed the Carpet Roses out in the front garden, there were 3 which have/had been there for many years - always good to have a change.
