Yes, it has been a bit wet around here
and no, it wasn't rain outside.
The photo of my desk
will give you a clue.
The water was in the bathroom!
It all started when my visitor from England
(told you about her last week)
used the bathroom.
She was getting ready for a shower and decided to just wet her hair
at the sink first. She turned on the hot tap
and when she had finished it wouldn't turn off,
suddenly the whole tap flew off, up into the air
and luckily she caught it.
Next there was a huge burst of water coming right up to the ceiling
and gushing everywhere.
Dressed only in a bra and knickers she screamed out for my husband
who came running but didn't know how to turn off the water, he
then screamed for me (I was upstairs at the time and oblivious to the commotion).
I came down, saw the water and ran out into the street to shut off the water.
There was poor Angie just standing there in bra and knickers, saturated in a huge puddle of water
and hard as it was, I didn't laugh (too much).
My little miss gave her the first towel she could find, which happened to be a beach towel that you put over your head with a duck head on it, which she wrapped around her waist..
You should have seen her with a ducks beak sticking out of her bottom!!
I found some of the parts for the tap across the bathroom in the shower and put the tap back together
but some bits must have gone down the drain and it wouldn't work. Luckily that bathroom has it's own hot water system, so I turned the water off to that and we then had water back to the house.
I had a plumber in the next morning and he said the taps had seen better days and so to my desk.
I had to go and buy new taps today.
They are not what I wanted but that is all they had in stock and so that is what I've got.
I must say, you English have a funny way of telling a person the bathroom needs a clean.
Angie could have just asked me to clean it, rather than ripping the tap out. :)
Back to my desk,
there is something else to show you.
Angie bought me a present from England, to match the beautiful
calendar she gave me for Christmas and here they are.
On the left is a book with beautiful sayings about friends
and on the right is a purse for going out somewhere special.
They match my calendar beautifully.
As you may have noticed, no art has been done this week.
After the wetness, we have been going out for lunch and shopping.
Also, I have little misses 11 birthday party this weekend and have to get organised for that.
On this WOYWW,
I apologise if I don't get to too many people this week, or reply
to comments but I will try to get to as many as I can.
Have a great week.
