Busy day - kids swimming lessons, putt putt with their visiting aunt and then the Night Quarter

Morning all. Shiny new thread. nice.

Nothing to report today, although yesterday I was occupied with a domestic flood in our lovely new kitchen. Missus d had the washing machine and dishwasher on simultaneously, and noticed the floors looked 'all shiny'. The tiles were covered in water that was issuing from we knew not where. Luckily her sister's son, home from Australia for Christmas, is a plumber, and they live just up the road, so a phone call had him immediately on his way. I had no idea what the problem was. We discovered that really hot water was bubbling up into the sink via the plughole - obviously from one of the appliances. We tried a plunger, to no avail. Eventually, though, we realised what the problem was. At missus d's suggestion, it has to be said, I checked the outlet pipe into the shore under the kitchen window, et voila. It sat right down on the plastic grating of the drain, not even room to get a finger in, and it was totally blocked with crap. I jiggled it a bit, and a great gush of water went down the drain. I cleared it out, and then Darren arrived, and we still needed him, just to confirm that everything else was in order. A fuse on a switch that controls the kickboard lights had gone, but that was the extent of the damage - or so I hope. We dried the whole area up, including under the kitchen units, hoovered, and I dried off the exposed bits of the kickboards with a hairdryer. Then she brought the dog for a walk, and I opened the unit doors under the sink, to be met with dripping shelves. They were absolutely stuffed to the gunwales with kitchen and cleaning products, so everything had to come out, be dried off individually and the carcass interiors similarly. Eventually herself came back with some 3 amp fuses, and I was able to put everything back together again.

Afternoon all, from misty Gatwick - well it was at 10:30, when we last saw daylight. Lanzarote, here we come.

Afternoon new thread. It's sunnier than it was on the old thread.

Sounds awful Dave.

Probably karma for not changing your username.

Twelfth night tonight, innit.

Morning. C-c-cold. Was caught in the STORM BOMB or whatever it was in NJ on Thursday. Site closed, so just did paperwork in hotel. Home at a reasonable hour yesterday though. Hope your lads got to DC alright, PR.

Is anyone else concerned that dave appears to keep corpses in his kitchen cupboards?

That lower case E is going to kill me.

I was gonna say that, but didn't want to be that guy.

Bonusy - 06 Jan 2018 13:13:18 (#14 of 15171)

everton isn't a proper noun, it's a shit noun. Same as chelsea.

Cloaky's descent into pedantic drugs hell.

It's nuclear winter here.

Don't eat the yellow snow, miso

I was deeply affected by "When the wind blows" as a kid in the 80s. It was so gentle for such a violent event. You don't hear about it now. Was it crap?
