Water water everywhere...

This morning I was awoken by my mans shouts from the kitchen 'honey.... come quick'.... reluctantly leaping from my bed, I realised there was a strange sound coming from the kitchen...

...A rushing, wet sound...

arghhhhhh!!!!!!!!!

A hot water pipe spontaneously burst and was watering the fridge and most of the kitchen.

After stopping the gush as it sprayed all over me, we managed to mop up most of the water...
Cant fix it myself as the pipe is so old and cant be unscrewed without breaking the seal on the water meter (which will mean us being accused of stealing water) .... and I am not even going to try calling a plumber today...

*Thanks to Bill Waterson for the pics of calvin without which I could not fully explain the horror of this mornings events

Oh, God!! This is indeed a horror
story. Looking for a plumber on Saunday is like...impossible. I know it! Geee, I hope you get this fixed asap. And I hope it doesn't cost a fortune... In my next life I may be a plumber ;)

Oh, my goodness...How are things now? Did you get that plumber in or are you still swimming?! Hope all is getting back to normal ((HUGS))

OH NOOOOO!!! That's NOT a good way to wake up and spend the day. (did you manage to make coffee anyway?)

Dang! I hope you got it all taken care of!!!
