miss_s_b: (Mood: In Need of Gin)
[personal profile] miss_s_b
... the cellar has flooded again. In between the cellar flooding last week and the cellar flooding tonight, I fell over walking the dogs and ended up in hospital with a suspected broken patella (luckily just bad bruising but I still have crutches and huge amounts of pain).

This means I have missed some shifts at work, and will therefore be missing my wage for those shifts. I was trying to save up for conference, which is less than two weeks away, and now it looks like I won't be able to meet the rent. At least we paid for the train tickets in advance...

We are hopefully going to be moving house soon. Instead of us paying X amount for this house and James paying X amount for his place, it makes sense for him to move over here so we are paying 1.5X between us and he isn't paying train fare every weekend and we get a much nicer and bigger house for less money. Sense is being made, right? But this involves sorting through all our huge piles of crap. I suspect this will unearth previously unknown civilisations, and possibly the lost valley of the dinosaurs.

On top of everything else, Roxy's skin condition has flared up again, and Holly goes back to school in the morning.

It's at times like this when I thank Cthulhu for the invention of gin.

*all the positive vibes I can spare* (which sadly isn't much currently as I need to get over this period of work stress and illness)

On a more practical note, have you found out where the water comes in so you can possibly do something prevent it happening again or at least slowing down a future flood?

:( Might be something for the council/whatever authority responsible for street drains to look at?

Aye, they're coming around tomorrow afternoon to have a look, actually nice and friendly on the phone, which makes a change.

A good sign.
First I thought yours is a really bizarre place to flood as you're halfway up a hill but then I realised you probably get a lot of water running past when it's raining precisely because of that location.

Oh dear - that does sound like you're currently experiencing higher than the EU recommended level of unfortunate events. :-( Still, new house plans sound both exciting and sensible (if that combination is even possible!). I hope you find somewhere lovely and flood-free very soon.

Excellent - I hope the hoop-jumping is a success.

Dear Miss S_B,

it has come to attention that you are currently in receipt of more than your fair share of shit.

Please give some of it back.

Yours, etc., etc.

(Also, very gentle hugs)

What everyone else said, basically. Am in no position to offer much in the way of help with the financial/tidying etc part of things, but if it helps to know that people care I can at least offer that...

Oh, I didn't think for a second you were *expecting* help. Just wish I could offer it.

In the words of my great-grandma, "may the best of the past be the worst of the future".

Sending huggles and good vibes and whatnot your way. <3

I don't think you're being a drama queen. And if you were, I'd say you'd earned the right to be one.

I hope this whole flooding issue gets resolved quickly or else you get to move.

*hugs*
