You will have probably seen that yesterday here in the UK we had a months rain in just a few hours. At first we were watching it and taking pictures of the street flooding. Then we quickly realised that we were in trouble. Our house has a cellar that is fitted out and used for storage etc. we realised there was nowhere for all the water outside to go and into our cellar it poured and quickly. We have electrics, freezer and more down there but the real worry was that it was rising fast and already way up the stairs and heading for our new kitchen and lounge. we began bailing water and called my son Tristan and his wife Sue. Without their help we would have been in much more trouble. The four of us bailed water and also pumped for a full 5 hours before we got it under control. It thankfully stopped raining. Barrie stayed up all night pumping it out while I tried to get a few hours sleep as up for early shift but the worry would not let me. I went to work and what a shift as I was out and about helping others also caught in the floods. Our company was finding alternate accommodation in some of our sheltered schemes. we had one lady who was in bed asleep when she realised her bedroom was awash. I realised how lucky we had been. Nature is so upside down at the moment .

Then when I got home from work there waiting was a parcel. Look at what was inside. When I ordered this from the very talented Sheila at http://www.feltedfantasies.com/ opted not to see photo's of it finished but to be surprised. I opened the bag and out came this beautiful bag. The likeness to my boy is stunning and I love it. What a cheer up it was and to arrive today.
Thank you so much to Tristan and Sue who must be shattered today because they will feel aches and pains everywhere from all that bucket bailing and to Barrie who proves there is life in an old dog yet lol.
